Renascence Editions
Works Printed in English, 1477-1799
"Renascence Editions is an effort to make available online works printed in English between the years 1477 (when Caxton began printing) and 1799. These texts have been produced with care and attention, but are not represented by the publisher as scholarly editions in the peer-reviewed sense...The dual mission of the Renascence Editions is to provide readable Web editions of early modern English works to the general public and to provide a site for publication of such works"

Complete Works of Christopher Marlowe - (dead link)
"This site provides an edition of Marlowe's works that begins to transcend the limits of print publication and exploit the flexibility of an electronic medium. We are committed to reaching as broad an audience as possible and so offer this site at no cost to users. Included here are all of Marlowe's plays, his two known poetic works, Hero and Leander and The Passionate Shepheard to His Love, his translations of Ovid and Lucan, and the short miscellaneous works attributed to Marlowe, a dedicatory epistle to Mary, the Countess of Pembroke and the epitaph on Sir Roger Manwood. You may access these texts through the site's index of Marlowe's works. Our edition of Marlowe's Doctor Faustus provides a particularly interesting case study of some of the editorial possibilities opened up in the shift from print to the electronic medium."
