A few books with which one could begin would be Evelyn May Albright's
Dramatic Publication in England, 1580-1640: A Study of the Conditions
Affecting Content and Form in Drama (New York: Gordian, 1971); Phoebe
Sheavyn's The Literary Profession in the Elizabethan Age (Manchester:
Manchester UP, 1909); Annabel Patterson's Censorship and Interpretation:
The Conditions of Writing and Reading in Early Modern England (Madison:
U of Wisconsin, 1984); Virginia Gildersleeve's Government Regulation of
the Elizabethan Drama (New York: Burt Franklin, 1961); Gerald Eades
Bentley's The Profession of the Dramatist in Shakespeare's Time,
1590-1642 (Princeton: Princeton UP, 1971); Cyndia Clegg's Press
Censorship in Elizabethan England (Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 1997); and
Richard Dutton's Mastering the Revels: The Regulation and Censorship of
English Renaissance Drama (Iowa City: U of Iowa, 1991).

Oh, this is easy!  Richard Dutton, *Mastering the Revels : The
Regulation and Censorship of English Renaissance Drama*

A bit of an eye-opener in places.  Dutton's thesis is that the
censorship of plays and other material was never primarily about
limiting or preventing the circulation of touchy ideas - and that quite
often the person holding the office of Master of the Revels was more
concerned about the money they could make!

Dear Clifford,

I presume you know "Mastering the Revels" by Richard Dutton. It's
well-researched, but reaches the wrong conclusions.

Try

Janet Clare, Art made Tongue-tied by Authroity (MUP, 1990) and the work
of Richard Dutton who I believe has a book on censorship, though the
title escapes me for the moment.

Cheers,
John Drakakis
