As the coordinating author, I, Carole Levin, put the team for the book together. I want to thank all my fellow authors; each brought fine scholarship and great joy to this project. It was a pleasure to work with them. Special thanks go to Jo Eldridge Carney and Debra Barrett-Graves for their help with discovering sources for the illustrations and with editing. They and the others were all wonderful colleagues and collaborators. Many people generously helped us as we worked on this project. First and foremost, we wish to thank our editor, Barbara Rader. Her vision and enthusiasm made the book happen. Dan Ehnbom used his expertise and friendship to help us with the illustrations. We also wish to thank Delia Baltera, Clif Bridges, Jessica Buser, Patrick Delin, Allan Donsig, Tim Elston, Stuart Fisher, Emily Greenwald, Margaret Hannay, Mark Hinchman, Shawn Holderby, Elaine Kruse, Michael Medwick, Michele Osherow, Lisa Roberts, Christa Setteducati, Bill Shields, and Joe and Julie Silvestri for all their help and support. Ruth Elwell's expertise provided the index.
The librarians at our home institutions as well as the staff at the Folger Shakespeare Library were generous and helpful. We would especially like to thank the staff of the Fogelson Library at the College of Santa Fe and the staff of the Love Library at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. We appreciate the support we received from our home institutions. The University of Nebraska at Lincoln provided
