Subject:        Islam and Early English Literature

Dear SHAKSPERians,

A number of people expressed interest in the results of database
searches I ran on Islam and early modern literature.  Below are the
records I found.  I've organized them by period, leaving them more or
less in OCLC form.  I can't vouch for the quality of these...only that
they do exist.  Hope they'll be helpful.
