The diary of Philip Henslowe, owner of the Rose Theatre in London during the 1590s, remains the most valuable source of information about the workings of the Elizabethan public theatres. Discussions of theatres and drama in the age of Shakespeare routinely refer to Henslowe, whose 'diary' touches on every aspect of the day-to-day operations of the Rose and the companies of actors, especially the Admiral's Men. The diary preserves the account-book of an Elizabethan theatre owner who was also the father-in-law of the leading actor, Edward Alleyn, and contains many miscellaneous and personal entries. The first edition of Henslowe's Diary, published in 1961, has long been out of print. It provides a thorough introduction to the manuscript, a full transcription of the document itself and several helpful appendices and indexes. For this second edition one of the original editors, R. A. Foakes, has added a new preface and reading list

The Theatrical manager in England and America; player of a perilous game: Philip Henslowe, Tate Wilkinson, Stephen Price, Edwin Booth, Charles Wyndham by Joseph W Donohue( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Philip Henslowe to David Merrick, the producer or theatre manager has generally been seen as a combination of Shylock and Simon Legree, usurer and slavedriver, wholly concerned with profit and loss, indifferent to art and artists. Yet no single person has greater responsibility in what George Henry Lewes called the ""perilous game"" of play production. The essays in this volume examine five English and American theatrical managers, from the Elizabethan period to the twentieth century: Philip Henslowe, Tate Wilkinson, Stephen Price, Edwin Booth, and Charles Wyndham. The contributors, who

With autograph corrections. Addressed to Master hinch(e)le, probably Philip Henslowe. Refers to Henslowe's promise "when you bade me send my wife and you would not send her back without aplase" [a gatherer's place?] " ... in time may be as beneficial to the house as another poor man may be, if you do but show her a little countenance before the company, the company will take it upon them ..." On the verso is a receipt for the small pox by Dr. [William] Paddy, possibly in Henslowe's hand. Also, transcript of the letter on the back of a note from Mr. Phipps of Brydges St. to Mr. Cubb, October 30, 1826
