Subject:        List of Reference Tools

Dear Colleagues,

I'm writing to ask for your help in compiling a list of important and
useful reference tools for the study of early modern English literature
and culture, aimed mainly at graduate students; texts such as the

Berger, Thomas, William C. Bradford, and Sidney L. Sondergard. An Index
to Characters in Early Modern English Drama: Printed Plays, 1500-1660.
CUP, 1998.

Bolgar, R. R. The Classical Heritage and its Beneficiaries. [Contains a
list of what was translated into English (and French and Italian) and

The Penguin Dictionary of English and European History, 1485-1789. Ed.
E. N. Williams. Penguin, 1980.

Tilley, Morris P. A Dictionary of the Proverbs in England in the
Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries. Ann Arbor: U of Michigan P, 1950.

I know we're thinking mainly about drama on this list, but I welcome
additions in all fields related to the period. Given the widely varied
multi-disciplinary work we see so much of, I'm hoping to spread the net
as wide as possible. I'll happily share the list when it's completed.

Many thanks in advance.

Frank Whigham
