Category:Burby, Cuthbert

Cuthbert Burby was a bookseller in London, 1592-1607, at locations including the Poultry (1592), Cornhill (1601-7), and The Swan at St. Paul's Churchyard (1602-7). Burby's name is on many of the most commercially successful plays of the 1590s: The Taming of A Shrew, Orlando Furioso, A Knack to Know a Knave, Edward III, George a Greene, Summer's Last Will and Testament, Every Man in His Humour, and Patient Grissell. He is also associated with Love's Labor's Lost and Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.

Comically, because of a similarity of name with Cuthbert Burbage, older brother of Richard Burbage, Cuthbert Burby was given in some old theater histories more of a role in the Shakespearean narrative than his historical role warrants.
