Appendix II
PRINTERS AND BOOKSELLERS OF THE QUARTOS

Edward All-de (who generally wrote his name All-de, unlike his father's, Allde) was the printer of the first quarto. He printed and published from 1584 to 1628. The record of his obtaining his freedom on 18 February, 1584, reads:

" Edward Aldee son of the said John Aldee Receaved of him for his admission freman of this cumpanie per patranagium iijs iiijdtout paye." ( S.R., II, 691.)

His first publication was registered 1 August, 1586 ( S. R., II, 450). In 1590 he succeeded his father as Master Printer ( S.R., III, 702). His death evidently occurred soon after his printing of The Bondman, as a manuscript of 1635, listing those who kept printing houses, states that Edw. Allde had died "about 10 yeeres since" ( S.R., III, 701).

Allde's early work was largely ballads, but later the works of Churchyard, Daniel, Dekker, Marlowe, John Taylor, and other noted writers came from his press. In 1597 the Stationers' Company seized his press and letters, which had been used in printing a Popish confession, and forbade him to print; but the Archbishop of Canterbury afterwards authorized the Company to allow him to resume his trade. In 1599, however, he was again in trouble for printing certain books that had been ordered burned, and as a result of printing a disorderly ballad, the wife of Bathe (which was burned), June 25, 1600, he was fined. Further fines were levied on him in 1602 for printing a book without entrance. In May 1603 he was the object of attention for having printed "disorderly" the basilicon Doron ( S. R., II, 835). Little else is recorded of him, with the exception of certain grants and assignments ( S. R., IV, 120, and V, lvii). ( All-de's life has been extensively investigated recently by Mr. R. B. McKerrow. See Library, Vol. X ( 1929), No. 2.)

The first quarto ( 1624) was owned jointly by John Harison and Edward Blackmore. The second edition ( 1638), while still in the possession of both publishers, was printed for them separately.

There were at least four John Harrisons (or Harisons) publishing or printing during Massinger's lifetime, and they were interrelated. "The correct form of the name of a Printer or Publisher of this Age is that which appears upon his printed books: and even in that there is often variation in spelling. . . . A father and son often spelled their names differ
