Unless otherwise stated, a book's place of publication is London. I have used short titles for Marlowe's works, and occasionally his initials, 'CM'.
Citations from Marlowe are normally to the texts and line numbers in The Complete Works, 5 vols. (Oxford, 1987–2000): vol. i, ed. Roma Gill, All Ovids Elegies, Lucans First Booke, Dido Queene of Carthage, Hero and Leander (1987; we cite the corrected reprint of 1997); this volume also includes 'The Passionate Shepherd' and Marlowe's Latin works; vol. ii, ed. Roma Gill, Dr Faustus (1990; repr. 2000); vol. iii, ed. Richard Rowland, Edward II (1994); vol. iv, ed. Roma Gill, The Jew of Malta (1995; repr. 2000); vol. v, Tamburlaine the Great, Parts 1 and 2, ed. David Fuller; The Massacre at Paris with the Death of the Duke of Guise, ed. Edward J. Esche (1998). The spelling in poems and plays has been modernized. References to Faustus give both the scene divisions from Gill's edition and, in square brackets, act and scene divisions from the Revels edition: Doctor Faustus A- and B-Texts (1604, 1616), ed. David Bevington and Eric Rasmussen (Manchester, 1993; repr. 1995).
