(Based upon official documents of the time, this monograph...)
Based upon official documents of the time, this monograph "deals first with the general regulation of the drama by the central government then traces the rise of the master of the levels and of the extensive powers which finally came into his hands, and follows this with a study of the censorship of which the master was the official administrator. Then follows a detailed account of the local regulations in London and of the long and bitter strife which was waged between the municipal government and the royal authority as to whether the drama should or should not be enacted in the city. A chapter upon the Puritan victory ends the study." N. Y. Times "A very thorough piece of work." Dial "The author has gone into the subject very thoroughly and presented in clear and succinct form, although perhaps a little dry in manner, an immense accumulation of facts." N. Y. Times
