R S Knox, and includes the Faustbuch published in Germany in 1587, upon which Marlowe based his play.
Whereas the Faustbuch is a rather vulgar rendering of Faustus' life and death, Marlowe's treatment of the legend portrays the "greatness of mind behind Faustus' impatience with mortal knowledge and his resolve to seek further by the Devil's aid...
Some of the ridiculous portrayals in the original History are reworked by Marlowe to endow the "Evil spirits" with "new dignity".

 Christopher Marlowe
Doctor Faustus has usually been assigned to the winter of 1588-89, but recent scholars like Tucker Brooke and Boas (in his edition of the play for The Works and Life of Marlowe under the general editorship of Case) argue for the date 1592.
The German Faustbuch, translated into English, seems to have been the source, and there is evidence that this was not published before 1592.
The first certain record of the play is of its being acted for Henslowe in 1594.

 21. Goethe's Faust, Adolf Bastian, Memetics
Ironically, the relatively obscure Faust came to be preserved in legend as the representative magician of the age that produced such occultists and seers as Paracelsus, Nostradamus, and Agrippa von Nettesheim.
Faust owes his posthumous fame to the anonymous author of the first Faustbuch (1587), a collection of tales about the ancient magi--who were wise men skilled in the occult sciences--that were retold in the Middle Ages about such other reputed wizards as Merlin, Albertus Magnus, and Roger Bacon.
In the Faustbuch the tales were attributed to Faust; they were narrated crudely and were further debased with clodhopping humour at the expense of Faust's dupes.

 Guardian | Carry on doctor
One has to accept that the Faust legend of a man who sells his soul to the devil exerts a mythic appeal.
It starts with stories of a real-life practising magician, who became the hero of the German Faustbuch, published in 1587, and then of Marlowe's play.
This led to pantomime and puppet-play versions seen in Frankfurt by the young Goethe, who between 1770 and 1832 produced his own monumental two-part Faust, recently staged in its exhausting, exhilarating entirety by Peter Stein.

 The Tarot of Prague
What is true is that there were real roots to the belief that Faust lived in Prague.
The oldest Faustbuch (1587) described a journey to Prague by Dr Faust, and recounts his impressions of, among other sights, Charles Bridge and the Jewish quarter.
In addition to this the book that Faust is believed to have used to learn how to summon spirits was probably first published in Prague in 1507.

 The Renowned Dr. Faustus
In Germany, a book called Spiess Faustbuch by Bockstael portrayed a lusty young man by the name of Doctor John Faustus searching for more information and power than was permitted.
His infamous death found its way into the Spiess Faustbuch nearly word for word.
      Even though Bockstael’s Spiess Faustbuch predated Marlowe’s The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus by little more than a decade, Marlowe is considered, by many, the father of the immortal story of Dr. Faust.

 Journal of Popular Film and Television: "Talk Not of a Wife" - American interpretations of the Faust legend in 'The ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The reference to "ceremonial toy" glosses a longer exchange in the 1587 Spiess Faustbuch and its 1592 translation into English, The Historie of the damnable life, and deserued [sic] death of Doctor John Faustus, the likely source for Marlowe (Butler 31; Watt 27-47).
Thus, from i ts origins, an important and recurrent theme in the tradition is that Faust is unmarried, and indeed, that this lack of a bride is a token of his damnation.
Combining Goethe's eternal feminine with the "ceremonial toy" of the Faustbuch and Marlowe, this wife inevitably proves instrumental in effecting Faust's redemption.

It would be hard to exaggerate the tenacity of Faust in the modern imagination.
In the centuries since the appearance of Johann Spiess' Faustbuch in 1587 and Christopher Marlowe's The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus shortly thereafter, the adjective "Faustian" has become common coin around the globe, an astonishingly malleable trope for overreaching of every stamp.
Faust clearly touches our quintessentially modern suspicion that the way we live has been purchased with a part of our humanity, and by common agreement, he belongs to the world, not just to Germany.

The plot may go deeper, into the 15th-century legend of Johann Fastus, the German scholar who cut a deal with Mephistopheles.
Faustus got seven years of unlimited knowledge, the Devil got his soul, and generations of humanities students got to "write a short essay comparing and contrasting" the original Faustbuch, Christopher Marlowe's "Tragicall History of D. Faustus," Goethe's "Faust" and Thomas Mann's "Doktor Faustus."
Anyway, it makes you wonder if various current events might be explained by other Indecent Proposals:
