Copy Notes Various early ink annotations including childish alphabet practice and marks of ownership partly lost in trimming of the fore-edges, Bala / Jones on H1r; Dear brother / I make Bould to [---?] / [---?] lines to you and a doodle on I2v; Richard Anwylt his booke and Mi[ss] Janet / Anwyll / his Booke on I3r; Richard [Anwy?] on K1r. The name Bullinbrook inscribed in ink on C1v and Bullingbrooke on C2r. Some pages badly frayed at the head, prior to binding. Probably acquired as one of a group of quarto plays printed around 1630, all in similar bindings, and bearing similar ownership inscriptions and marks suggesting they may have been previously bound together and broken up for separate sale.

Binding Late C18th or early C19th half calf, cerise paste-paper boards, gilt double-ruled spine with title and date in gilt.
