This is the third volume of a detailed play-by-play catalogue of drama written by English, Welsh, Irish, and Scottish authors during the 110 years between the English Reformation to the English Revolution. The catalogue covers every known play, extant and lost, including some which have never before been identified. It is based on a new, complete, and systematic survey of the whole of this body of work, and is presented in chronological order. Each entry contains comprehensive information about a single play: its various titles, authorship, and date; a summary of its plot, a list of roles, and details of the human and geographical world in which the fictional action takes place; a list of sources, narrative and verbal, and a summary of its formal characteristics; details of its staging requirements; and an account of its early stage and textual history. Volume III covers the years 1590-1597 and sees the start of Shakespeare's career as a dramatist.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Another remarkable project... With its wide scope and meticulous attention to detail, it will be an essential reference work. * Brian Vickers, The Times Literary Supplement *
The Cataolgue is therefore bound to have a significant impact both on teaching and research in the fields of Shakespeare and early modern drama ... [it] will prove immensely useful to scholars and students alike. * Sonia Massai, Shakespeare Survey *
a remarkable achievement ... ground-breaking ... Wiggins is to be congratulated for the untiring spirit of enquiry which has sustained him since the beginning of this century and will see him through to the completion of his vast enterprise. All students of English Renaissance drama owe him an incalculable debt. His Catalogue, I predict, will be one of the first volumes one reaches for, and one of the last to be put back on the shelf. * Brian Vickers, The Spenser Review *
The third volume of this remarkable series has roughly the same number of pages as its predecessors, yet covers a much shorter timespan. * Gwilym Jones, Around The Globe *
