Subject: 17.0655 Shakespeare Reading -- Where?
Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0655 Shakespeare Reading -- Where?

May I add to this question: Could one answer be that the theater 
companies themselves maintained a collection of books? Or someone like 
Henslowe.  Shakespeare was not the only dramatist to use Holinshed and 
Foxe. This is supposition, I readily admit, but it seems there would be 
a certain economy in having commonly-used sources available for the 
variety of dramatists working for any company. Is there a problem with 
this idea of mine?
