Subject: Cuthbert Burby Query
Can anybody point me to a good source of information about the
professional details of Cuthbert Burby in and around 1592, specifically
containing answers to the question - did he set type himself or employ
compositors (if so, who and how many) etc.?
I am currently trawling through the Shakespeare Institute archives
looking for any details I can find, but any suggestions to minimise
trawling time would be greatly appreciated.
