Subject:        Question on _The Partial Law_ and _Much Ado_

Does anyone know if the anonymous play The Partial Lawe (c. 1616 or so)
is available in any printed edition?  It's a manuscript play owned by
the Folger and is supposed to be a re-working of Much Ado.  Has the
Malone Society printed it?  As Massinger seems to be the most likely
candidate for author, does anyone know if the Oxford Massinger included

Some discussion of the play came up during a panel discussion at the
NEMLA convention, and I promised that I'd do some research and report
