AcademiaFilter: Help me find some references for my first thesis chapter. JSTOR and similar resources aren't yielding a lot of hits. I need background material for justifying selecting editions of Elizabethan dramatic texts.

Long story short: I'm doing a stylometric comparison of two Early Modern English playwrights' texts. Does anyone know of any academic papers and/or books relating to the subject of choosing texts for this kind of analysis, considering factors such as not having any original manuscripts, the existing texts having been through the hands of editors and compositors, etc.?
I've been searching through all the usual academic databases, but so far I'm drawing a blank. If anyone can even point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
