Playhouse Shadows: The Manuscript behind <i>Dick of Devonshire</i>
Keywords:Heywood, Dick of Devonshire, manuscripts
AbstractEven though six annotations by the playhouse bookkeeper comprise fairly slim evidence, I believe they provide conclusive proof that the scribe's copy for Dick of Devonshire, BL MS Egerton 1994, folios 30-51, was the playhouse copy as prepared for production by the company bookkeeper. These six annotations are indeed 'Playhouse Shadows' that identify the scribe's copy-text.
