    Abstract:
    “Appendix: Census of English Chivalric Romances through 1616” compiles data on manuscripts, printings, entries, and adaptations of English chivalric romances from standard sources: Short-Title Catalogue, Annals of the English Drama 975-1700, and the Stationers’ Register, among others. Tabulations of the data through 1610 serve as the basis for the book’s extended discussion (Ch.2) of the popularity of the English chivalric romance tradition, and of the relationship between fluctuations in its popularity and historical circumstances. For many reasons, such a compilation and such a tabulation must be regarded as provisional, not definitive. Additions, subtractions, and modifications are welcome at whiteknyght@opendoor.com.
    Notes:
    This chapter is part of a revised and enlarged second edition of “Shakespearean Tragedy as Chivalric Romance: Rethinking Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello, and King Lear,” (Woodbridge: Boydell & Brewer, 2003). After two printings, the first edition soon went out of print. The publisher had excluded the appendix to reduce costs and declined a second edition to include it. I have published this edition elsewhere since 2014 and here in 2018 to make the book with the appendix available for free.
