Editorial Practice

B.J.F. = John Fletcher. The attribution to Fletcher is not certain. Probably by him and Ben Jonson, revised by Philip Massinger. Most subsequent editions are entitled "Rollo Duke of Normandy". Signatures: A⁴ (-A1.4) B-G⁴ g1 (=A4) ² G-I⁴. First quire G and g1 are an interpolation to supply missing text. A1 is blank, but was probably intended to be removed when A4 was moved to g1; not included in pagination above. Reproduction of the original in Dyce Library, Victoria and Albert Museum.
