Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture
Our hopes, expressed in the previous issue (G&R 67.2, 254), that this issue will go into production in better circumstances, regrettably went unfulfilled. Hence, we are forced to repeat our apology to the readers regarding the Review sections: some are missing (reassuringly, however, fewer than in the previous issue), for the same reasons – some colleagues still have only a limited access to their books and offices, or no access whatsoever. The university libraries in many places, if they are open at all, are able to provide the books only with glacial speed. In addition, the job of our reviewers has been hampered by the decision of some major publishers to stop sending out physical copies of books and deliver them only in digital formats (more on this below, p. 168). Therefore, we repeat our thanks to the readers, reviewers, and authors for their continuing support, and would like to express our sincerest gratitude for the encouraging messages we received from our readers.
