Thanks to Susan Brock for the references to Savage's *Shakespearean
Extracts* and Ingleby's *Shakspere Allusion-Book*.  I've also found *The
Jonson Allusion-Book*, compiled by Jesse Franklin Bradley and Joseph
Quincy Adams, New Haven: Yale UP; London: Oxford UP, 1922.  Like
Ingleby's book, this also collects a huge variety of biographical
allusions from letters, legal documents, poems, and title-pages, but
appears to ignore commonplace and diary citations of Jonson's texts.

A reference to Halliwell-Phillipps's edition of Shakespeare's *Works*,
16 vols., London: 1853-65 says that it reprints several facsimile pages
of Shakespearean drama from a commonplace book of around 1660.  The MSS
themselves are at Folger and Stratford, and have been identified by
Gunnar Sorelius as belonging to a book titled "Hesperides."  Since
travelling to Folger or Stratford will have to wait, I'm looking for
Halliwell-Phillips's facsimiles, but can't find the above edition.  I
know that it was reissued often, occasionally without permission, but
none that I've seen yet reprints this facsimile material.  Has anyone
seen a later edition that includes it?  Many thanks,

David Knauer
