|Content Description||Volume bears the title 'The Sullen Lovers - Thomas Shadwell' gold-stamped on the spine.|
The MS is in the hand of a professional scribe. The corrections and revisions are made, apparently by Shadwell himself, on pp. 2, 7, 10, 15, 25, 48, 53 and 55.
Thomas Shadwell provided the title 'The Sullen Lovers or The Impertinents. A Comedy' on the title page, and inscribed it to his patron 'For his Grace the Duke of Newcastle'.
