First published in 1930, in Tamburlaine the Great – in Two Parts, Professor Ellis-Fermor discusses early editions of the work and considers how far the spelling and punctuation of the 1590 octavo should be retained in modern editions. The author discusses the date that the play was written and its authorship and sources. She then goes on to look at the stage history of Tamburlaine before presenting the play itself in two parts. Professor Ellis-Fermor retains the spelling of the majority of proper names. She also keeps the old stage directions where they occur, as these are, she says, picturesque and succinct, and there appears no reason to discard them in favour of the more modern forms used by subsequent editors.  In her appendices, she includes extracts from other accounts of Tamburlaine and looks at later editions of the work.
