Christopher Marlowe: Poet and Spy

By Park Honan | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

I especially wish to thank staff at the Canterbury Cathedral Archives and at the Canterbury Library, as well as at Cambridge University. At Corpus Christi College, the Master and Fellows let me stay over at Marlowe's former college time and again while work on this biography was in progress. I am very grateful to Ms G. C. Cannell, for constant help at the Parker Library.

I gladly thank the Huntington Library in California, as well as the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, for fellowships while I was writing the book. In the Netherlands, I was aided at Naarden's museum, and very considerably at the Gemeentearchief Vlissingen, to whose staff, and especially Ad Tramper, I am obliged. In France, I was aided at Rheims and particularly at the Musée Carnavalet in Paris; also, for their interest and encouragement, I thank Pierre-Louis Basse, François Mouret, Marianne Sinclair and Sylvette Gleize, in Paris, and, in Brittany, Annick and Per Blomquist.

Closer to home, I am much obliged to the Bodleian Library at Oxford; the British Library in London; the Brotherton Library at Leeds University; the Centre for Kentish Studies at Maidstone; Deptford Public Library; the National Archives (formerly the Public Record Office), and the Yorkshire Archaeological Society. Members of the Marlowe Society, including Peter Farey, Michael Frohnsdorff, Alan Hart, and John Hunt, generously shared with me their research and often their time. At the Royal Armouries, Philip Lankester and Robert Woosnam-Savage tirelessly replied to my queries. For help with Renaissance Latin translations, and often debatable meanings, I warmly thank J. W. Binns of York University. I also turned to Moira and Gerald Habberjam in matters of genealogy and palaeography, and to Paul Turner for enlightenment on Greek, and other unique blessings.

Ian McDiarmid replied wisely to my questions about his acting Barabas's role in The Jew of Malta. As often before, Andrew Gurr answered queries on playing companies, and sent notes on sources. On English law and homicide, Nicholas Inge set me straight, or straighter than I was. For medical and physiological details, I thank Dr J. Thompson Rowling and
