Editorial Reviews

"Andrew Murphy generally allows his history to speak for itself and resists making judgements, but what he has done is important, and his very readable and well-organized book will find a place in any courses on editing and bibliography, and should appeal to a much wider audience" - Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England, R.A.
