Quick Reference

(fl. 1564–1608). London printer who published several of Shakespeare's plays in quarto. Roberts held the exclusive right to print playbills and appears to have had a close relationship with the Lord Chamberlain's Men, for whom he may have made blocking entries in the Stationers' Register in order to prevent unauthorized publication of some of their plays.
