Quick Reference

(fl. 1596–1602), compiler of a commonplace book containing quotations from various plays performed around 1600, including Ben Jonson's plays, John Marston's Antonio plays, and The Merchant of Venice. The inaccuracy of most citations suggests they were noted down during or soon after performance, not taken from a printed text.
