(p. xiii) Abbreviations and Conventions

Essential bibliographies are given at the end of each chapter. Footnotes contain full bibliographic references to enable readers to locate works consulted for that chapter that are not in the chapter’s bibliography.

Historians, literary critics, and legal historians follow different practices when it comes to modernizing or not modernizing the spelling and orthography of quotations from primary sources. As this is an interdisciplinary collection, we have not imposed a uniform practice of modernization or old-spelling/orthography in quotations from primary sources and readers will find variation across chapters in this respect.

When no other edition is specified in a chapter’s endnotes, quotations from Shakespeare given in the text are taken from William Shakespeare, The Complete Works, 2nd edn, ed. Stanley Wells, Gary Taylor, John Jowett, and William Montgomery (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2005).
