Subject: 	Source Query

Does anything exist, hopefully in some kind of catalogue form, that 
lists the sources of plays, sort of in the way that Harbage lists 
genre/date/auspices? Common sense tells me that this is the sort of 
thing that would be found in individual editions of plays/articles about 
certain plays, but I suppose it doesn't hurt to ask. I'm especially 
interested in finding out which plays are based on ballads (not 
pamphlets, and other than the Huntingdon plays and The Blind Beggar of 
Bethnal Green as I already know about those). Any suggestions for 
reading on this matter would be greatly appreciated, especially any 
articles anyone knows of that might be lurking in hard-to-find places as 
books seem to be presenting themselves slightly more easily as I plod 
through the library catalogue. Also, any articles/books about drama 
based on ballad sources that could be construed as dealing with the 
idea/s of English history/Englishness.

Best,
Will Sharpe
