Authorship and Appropriation

This chapter examines efforts to control plagiarism and the changes in the practice of appropriation of plays in England during the period from 1660 to 1710. The Restoration saw a growing concern with the integrity of an author's work and that concern was reflected in the changing organization and formats of play catalogues. During the 1650s, play catalogues listed the titles of the plays. This changed in the 1680s and 1690s when Gerard Langbaine produced catalogues that listed the authors instead of play titles.
