The Burn transcript of Herbert's Office-Book

Herbert's Office-book is lost, and survives only in various partial transcripts. One such transcription was created by Craven Ord, and subsequently owned by Halliwell-Phillipps, who took cuttings from it and apparently discarded the remainder (Bawcutt, 20).

In 1996, N. W. Bawcutt published new records deriving from hitherto overlooked transcriptions and cuttings from the Ord manuscript, made by its previous owner (i.e. previous to Halliwell-Phillipps) the nineteenth-century scholar Jacob Henry Burn ("Collection towards forming a history of the now obsolete office of the Master of the Revells", [1874]: Beinecke Library, Osborn d1).

Plays in this category are known through the Burn transcript of Herbert. Select images are available through Yale's Beinecke Library.
