>Is there any published version of Henslowe's diary?

There have been several, but the definitive edition is R. A. Foakes and
R. T. Rickert, eds, 'Henslowe's Diary' (CUP, 1961).  Foakes also
produced a magnificent, but forbidding, two-volume facsimile edition in
the late seventies.  See also the second edition of Carol Chillington
Rutter, comp., 'Documents of the Rose Playhouse' (MUP, 1999).
Frequently, I break-up my undergraduate groups into small groups, and
make them look for relevant receipts or properties relating to the
particular play we are studying that week.  When they find that Henslowe
retained a bridle for Tamburlaine, or a horse 'with his legs', or a
garment that was to make the actor 'disappear', they can really get some
insights into the sort of pre-naturalistic (terrible adverb, but I can't
think of a better one right now) style of the Elizabethan stage.
Rutter's accessible book is really helpful for revealing the potential
mileage to be gained by comparing dramatic moments made possible by the
texts with Henslowe's records of material, theatrical artifacts.

Sophie Masson asks,

Later this year Cambridge University Press is reprinting the 1961
edition by Foakes and Rickert, in hardcover and paperback.  Foakes will
be doing an additional introduction.

R.A. Foakes's definitive edition is out of print but he has mentioned an
attempt to get it back into print.  Don't know if or when...
