In answer to the first of Drew Whitehead's queries: I don't think he is
going to find a complete single-volume Marlowe with anything like
Revels-level (or even Riverside-level) annotation in it. The economics
of (non-Shakespearean!) publication make it unlikely. The best half-way
house I know of is the 'Dr Faustus and Other Plays', edited by David
Bevington, World's Classics (OUP), which has most - but not all - of the
plays in; the texts are, as you would expect, scrupulously fine - and
the level of annotation is very good for a modestly priced paperback.

And I'm not only saying this because my own 'Middleton's "Women Beware
Women" and Other Plays' will be out in the same series shortly ...

Drew:

How about the Everyman edition? It is not too bad. I had to use it for
an independent study in Renaissance History Plays last semester. It also
had the Complete Poems.

It's a little embarrassing to be recommending an edition in a series for
which I am one of the Associate General Editors but may I suggest the
edition for Oxford University Press edited by David Bevington and Eric
Rasmussen. It contains both parts of Tamburlaine, both texts of Dr
Faustus, as well as The Jew of Malta and Edward II. It is available in
the Oxford World's Classics series in paperback at $9.95.
