These references include not only the works cited throughout the project but several books, chapters, and articles that I deem relevant to understanding the topics discussed. I wish to express personal gratitude to Terry Ross, co-admin of The Shakespeare Authorship Page with David Kathman, who was of immense help in uploading countless versions of the project; Sean M. Winslow, who helped with the sorting routine of the Facet Search; Anne Dondertman and David Fernandez, who were instrumental in getting the Thomas Fisher Library’s surrogate uploaded promptly to Internet Archive; and Laura Estill, Matthew Steggle, Ryan Whyte, Stephen Wittek, Eleanor Shevlin, and Ann Blair, for offering valuable suggestions and advice at various stages of its creation. I am very grateful to both the Shakespeare Association of American and SHARP: The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing, for funding my travels to their annual conferences to talk about features of this research.
