Prefatory Note

The licensing act of 1737 required that copies of all plays and other entertainments designed to be performed on the stage in Great Britain be submitted to the Lord Chamberlain for license fourteen days before their presentation. In order to carry out the provisions of the new law, the office of Examiner of Plays was established, the first Examiner, William Chetwynd, being appointed on March 10, 1738. Chetwynd acted almost entirely through deputies, first Thomas Odell 1 and second Edward Capell. 2 At his death, April 3, 1770, apparently no successor was designated; and Capell acted as Examiner until the appointment of John Larpent on November 20, 1778. Larpent died in office on January 18, 1824.
The official copies of plays submitted to the Examiner between 1737 and January, 1824, in Larpent's possession at the time of his death, were bought about 1832 by John Payne Collier and Thomas Amyot. 3 In An Old Man's Diary, 4 under the date of March 11, 1832, Collier states:
My friend Amyot and I, between us, have bought all Larpent's Dramatic Manuscripts... but, on the whole, they are hardly worth the money we have given for them (¥400).... The Larpent Manuscripts fill six or eight immense bundles, and I hardly know how to find them house-room, particularly as Amyot leaves his share in my keeping.
During the years that he owned the collection, Collier referred to it twice in published articles; 1 and in January, 1854, there was an announcement in the Athenaeum 2 that the collection had been bought by the Earl of Ellesmere. The plays had been offered (by Collier?), the notice continued, to the Trustees of the British Museum, who declined to purchase them; they will, therefore, form a distinguishing feature in the library of his Lordship's new mansion in the Green Park, and no doubt will be accessible to all who wish to consult the plays for literary and historical purposes. Then, forgotten, they lay in the library of Bridgewater House for sixty-three years; and, overshadowed by the Chaucer Manuscript and the Shakespeare first folio, passed unheeded into the Huntington Library in 1917. 3 At last they were recalled to the attention of students in 1927, with the publication of references to the collection in Allardyce Nicoll's A History of Late Eighteenth Century Drama, and were described as the real feature of the [Bridgewater House] library in its later period by George Sherburn in an account of Huntington Library Collections in 1931. 4
Presumably, all new plays performed between June 24, 1737, and January 18, 1824, were licensed as the law required; and one might expect to find them in the collection in the Huntington Library. But, enormous as the collection still is, it is not now entirely complete. The extent and causes of the shrinkage are difficult to determine, but from time to time, apparently, individual pieces were abstracted. 5
In the Bridgewater House Library the plays were bound in blue paper covers, neatly labeled, and shelved in boxes of four sizes (designated Large, Extra, Middle, and Small), stamped Larpent Dramatic MSS., and bearing on the spine lists of the contents. Within the sizes, the arrangement was roughly chronological. Three scrapbook volumes contained occasional prologues and epilogues, addresses, and undated or unidentified short pieces. Presumably under Collier's direction, there was made a manuscript catalogue, 1 which sometimes conveys information not found upon the copy itself, but which is inaccurate and not quite complete.
The copies sent to the Examiner are generally clearly written by professional copyists attached to the theatres, though some are partly, or entirely, in the authors' handwriting. Most copies are accompanied by a formal application for license to perform, signed by the manager of the theatre; and the name of the author only rarely appears upon the play, except on title-pages of printed copies, submitted instead of manuscripts. Originally, manuscripts were bound in a rough, whity-brown paper cover, upon which the Examiner often made notes. Before Larpent took office the mark that was used to indicate that the play had been examined seems to have been an X on this paper cover; but Larpent usually entered upon it the name of the theatre from which the play was submitted and a date, presumably that on which he licensed the play, generally a day or two after the date of the application. 1 On some copies the marks of the Examiners indicate objectionable passages, and most suppressed plays bear endorsements which state that the license was not granted.
While Collier had access to the collection, he inscribed many of the copies with notes, most of them partly in shorthand, recording his opinions as to such matters as authorship, handwriting, or date. Though many of these notes are right, they are often mistaken and sometimes unintelligible.
The fact that these plays are official copies sent by the managers of the theatres, not the authors, to the office of the Examiner, places them in a different category from that of most literary texts. Their relation on the one hand to the acted version and on the other to the published work raises complicated problems that can be solved only individually. What liberties actors took with the text after it had been approved, one cannot say, but it seems likely that in general the licensed text was presented on the stage. The printed play, however, was generally set from copy provided by the author; and in it he had the opportunity to restore what the manager had eliminated, or to revise the piece in the light of its reception. The Larpent text, thus, may represent a state of composition either later or earlier than the first acted version. An examination of the manuscripts will show that the Examiner's copy seldom conforms entirely to the published text.
In the preparation of this Catalogue, information has been derived from numerous and diverse published works. In addition to playbills and periodicals, the following have been extensively used:
  • David Erskine Baker, Isaac Reed, and Stephen Jones, Biographia Dramatica. 1812
    • Two interleaved copies of the Biographia Dramatica in the Huntington Library have been used:
      • (1) A copy, formerly the property of John Payne Collier, containing manuscript notes by him and by the sixth Duke of Devonshire. Facing the title-page of Vol. II Collier has made the following note:
        • With the assistance of Reed's original M.S. I have marked all the principal articles and passages furnished by Steevens up to 1782.
        • In this vol: the Duke of Devonshire has transcribed from his Catalogue all the notes &c. of J. P. Kemble, with additions by his Grace. To the 2d. vol. I transcribed them myself.
        • I have also made many additions of plays and corrections of errors by the aid of Larpents License Books and the MS. plays &c which were sent to him and to his predecessors for perusal from 1737 downwards.
      • (2) A copy, originally owned by Kemble, referred to by Collier in his note, above. This is the Kemble-Devonshire copy. It contains manuscript notes by Kemble, with some additions by the Duke of Devonshire, mostly titles, etc., of plays in the Kemble-Devonshire Collection of Plays published after the Biographia Dramatica appeared and therefore not listed therein. This copy apparently served Kemble, and later the Duke, as a catalogue to his collection of plays, as it gives the number of the volume, in that collection, in which each play may be found.

The items in the present Catalogue of Larpent plays are divided into two sections: (1) the plays and identified prologues, etc. (Numbers 1-2399); and (2) unidentified addresses, prologues, epilogues, etc. (Numbers 2400-2502). In the first section entries are arranged chronologically in accordance with the date of the application for license, or, if that is not available, the date of first performance. Prologues, epilogues, and other related documents are included in the same entry as the plays to which they belong, if the latter are found in the collection, even though they may be bound and shelved separately. The unidentified items are arranged alphabetically.
In each entry the title of the play is given first as it appears upon the manuscript, even though it may be better known under another title. After the title is a descriptive phrase indicating the type of play, taken either from the copy itself or from contemporary descriptions, which have been followed even to the vaguest of designations, such as piece, in preference to editorially supplied terms. The name of the author, which seldom appears on the copy, is given, when known.
The second part of the entry gives the date of application for license, the name of the manager, and the theatre, and the date of first production, from such authorities as may be regarded as generally reliable. (Theatre and year are not repeated unless they differ from those appearing in the application.) It is then stated whether the copy is a manuscript or printed; and noteworthy peculiarities of the copy are mentioned. Collier's notes written on the plays are given only rarely, as they usually repeat those in his copy of Biographia Dramatica.
Following the description of a manuscript is a statement of the result of a comparison of manuscript and printed text, made whenever there was a printed copy of the play in the Huntington Library. 1 The edition compared is indicated, and in parentheses is given the Huntington Library accession number of the copy used; and a phrase points out the nature or extent of the differences between the two texts. As these notes represent only a hasty comparison and are not to be taken as the results of careful collation, they are intentionally expressed in the most general terms. The absence of comparison with a printed text does not necessarily indicate that the play was unpublished, but merely that no copy was available for comparison.
Finally, relevant parts of Collier's notes in his copy of the Biographia Dramatica are printed, and care has been taken to quote all of the new or suggestive material from them. No attempt has been made to indicate calligraphic peculiarities; and superior letters, as in M r. or w th., are lowered. Indexes of titles and authors, with references to entries in the Catalogue, are appended.
In order to clarify this explanation of entries, the following expansion of entry 2 is given:
Art and Nature, a comedy in five acts, by James Miller: The play is accompanied by a note of application for license to perform, addressed to the Examiner of Plays (or to the Lord Chamberlain), dated January 12, 1737/8, and signed by Charles Fletewood, manager of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. The play was produced at that theatre on February 16 of the same year. The copy in question is a manuscript, in which the Examiner has marked certain passages for omission from the performance. The epilogue is included with the text of the play, and the cast is given with the dramatis personae. A rapid comparison of the text of this manuscript with the 1738 edition (copy in the Huntington Library, Kemble-Devonshire Collection of Plays, Vol. 240) shows that the manuscript contains a number of passages, including those marked for deletion by the Examiner, that have not been printed. A manuscript note by John Payne Collier in his copy of the Biographia Dramatica (1812) calls attention to The Pigeon Pie (1738), which Collier states is a satire upon Miller.
Two groups in the collection have been treated less completely than the compilers could have wished. The larger consists of the Italian operas, which have not been adequately identified because of the scarcity of accurate information on the subject of Italian opera in England and the lack of opera librettos in the Huntington Library, outside the Larpent Collection. The other group is of plays submitted from provincial theatres, concerning whose productions little information is available. 1
The principal task of the compilers of this Catalogue was to identify the plays: although authors' names had to be found and an astonishing number of changed titles was encountered, a greater measure of success was achieved than had been originally anticipated. The second place in the attention of the compilers was given to the comparison of manuscript and printed texts. The almost complete success of this endeavor has been made possible by the presence under the same roof of both the Larpent manuscripts and the Kemble-Devonshire plays. Some inaccuracies and errors doubtless remain, even after careful revisions; that they are not more numerous, the principal compiler gratefully realizes is because of the care and skill of his associates, Mrs. Marion Tinling and Miss Dorothy Bowen, and of other members of the staff of the Huntington Library.

2Appointed in 1749, Capell was deputy until 1781.
3I have been unable to find a record of the first sale of the plays. A notice in The Athenaeum (No. 1367, Jan. 7, 1854, p. 21), possibly based on information supplied by Collier, states that Larpent's widow being anxious to sell them in 1825, they were bought for 180l. But Lt. Col. Lionel de Hochepied Larpent, great-grandson of John Larpent, has kindly informed me that the collection was sold by Larpent's executors, his two sons (Sir George de Hochepied Larpent, Bart., and Baron J. J. de Hochepied Larpent), presumably when John Larpent's effects were disposed of at the death of his widow in 1832; so Collier and Amyot may have secured the plays at this time, and there may have been no sale in 1825. Unfortunately, Colonel Larpent has not found documentary evidence of the disposition of the collection; and the statement in the Athenaeum concerning a sale for ¥180 is unsupported.

3In 1857 a query ( Notes and Queries, 2d Ser., IV, 269) mentions the supposed existence of the collection and asks in whose possession these MSS. now are. This is all that was known of it by W. A. J. Archbold when he wrote the life of Larpent in the Dictionary of National Biography, where he states Larpent is said... to have left behind him manuscript copies of all the plays submitted to the inspector from 1737 to 1824. Nor were the Larpent plays mentioned in the account of the Bridgewater Sale to Henry E. Huntington in 1917 by W. N. C. Carlton ( Notes on the Bridgewater House Library, privately printed [New York, 1918]).

5Through the kindness of Mr. William A. Jackson, of the Harvard College Library, and with the generous consent of Mr. Carl H. Pforzheimer, the owner, I have been allowed to examine a manuscript Alphabetical Catalogue with Notes of Theatrical representations &ca Submitted for Licensing From The Year 1737, to the Year 1787 inclusive. This list, in the handwriting of Larpent and of his second wife, contains some 28 titles that I have not been able to identify with any now in the Huntington Library Larpent collection; but a large number of titles in that collection are not in this manuscript list.



It is perhaps noteworthy that the most conspicuous of the plays of the period not now in the Huntington Library collection (e.g., The Clandestine Marriage and The School for Scandal) are not listed by Larpent-from which one may infer that the copies of these pieces were removed from the Examiners' papers before Larpent took office. Others appear to have been either returned to the managers or given away by Larpent or by Collier. For instance, J. P. Kemble was by 1800 already in possession of two (Nos. 298 and 378 in the present Catalogue), which he bound with his plays and later sold to the sixth Duke of Devonshire, who himself had become the owner of three others (Nos. 471, 918, and 1474). These have now come into the Huntington Library from a source different from that of the main body of the collection; and the Examiner's copy of Goldsmith's The Grumbler (No. 354) was in the Hoe collection.
1The title-page, Catalogue of the Larpent Dramatic MSS. 1602-1824, is misleading, as many of the plays are printed, and as the collection contains no manuscript earlier than 1737. Some earlier printed copies and some eighteenth-century prologues to be used with earlier plays are found.
1Sometimes, strangely enough, it is considerably after the first performance-which may mean nothing except that as Larpent progressed towards fourscore years he became either careless of his duties or ignorant of the calendar.
1In a few cases (which are indicated), copies were kindly lent by other libraries.
1For dates of several provincial performances I am indebted to F. T. Wood, Unrecorded XVIII Century Plays, Notes and Queries, CLXX (1936), 56-58, 319.

As the endorsement on the first page, made in the office of the Examiner (?), is an X, the MS is probably pre-Larpent. Its general appearance also seems to me to indicate a date earlier than that assigned by Collier (?) and the Bridgewater Catalogue. Also, in the cast three singers whom I have tentatively identified, place the performance, if I am correct, at about 1745. They are Signor [Angelo Maria] Monticelli, who was in London from 1741 to 1746; Signora [Giulia] Frasi, who first appeared in London in 1743; and Signora Visconti, who was prima donna there during the forties. As both Monticelli and Frasi appear in the cast given in the MS, it must be for a performance between 1743 and 1746. It may therefore be Aristodemo, Tiraimo di Cuma, pasticcio, ascribed to [Paolo Antonio?] Rolli (by Nicoll, Early Eighteenth Century Drama [2d ed.], p. 389), H1, April 3, 1744.

Scope and Content Note

Application Mar., 1761, James Lacy and David Garrick, D.L. Prod. [as The first act of Taste, with a new additional act (never performed before) called Modern Tragedy] Apr. 6.
MS: endorsed X. (Apparently an unprinted alteration of the version of 1751.)
J.P.C. in B.D.: Foote's Taste was sent by Lacy & Garrick to the Licenser on Decr. 28, 1751-a very incorrect and ignorantly written M.S. In 'March 1761' (no day) Lacy & Garrick sent another 'Comedy of Taste' to the Licenser of which no notice is taken in the biographies of Foote. It consists in the first act chiefly of the scene, in the piece of 1751, between Carmine & Lady Pentweazle; and in the second act of a part of Foote's Diversions of the Morning, including the mock-tragedy of Lindamira. There is an introductory scene also between Townley and Manley:-the latter having just come to town after a long residence in the country is first carried by the former for amusement to Carmine's, the painter, and afterwards to Project's, a manager of a company of players. This was no doubt also by Foote and played by him at Drury Lane in 1761-2. [This seems to be an accurate statement of the situation.]

Comp. 1761 (Dev HC 24): slight differences in phraseology; characters and order of scenes do not exactly correspond; one additional scene in MS not printed.
J.P.C. in B.D.: The Scene of the Yorkshire servant maid [inserted in this MS] was a subsequent addition probably Garrick ['s]-The scene of Mrs. Doggrel [also inserted in this MS] was certainly Garricks and in the Licensers Copy it is corrected throughout by him-The scene of the Yorkshire Servant Maid & of Mrs. Doggrel were both licensed at different dates-But see Reads letter to Garrick Feb 11th. 1767 in which he mentions the new part of Mrs Doggrel, as if it were his.
