This chapter‐length conclusion traces the later history of entertainment texts: these books and manuscripts have continued to circulate over the centuries since their production in ways that reveals much about how they have been understood. There are about sixty surviving copies of the various Elizabethan entertainment pamphlets, and their provenance history shows them shifting from being objects of antiquarian interest to highly prized bibliographical rarities. Manuscripts have, for a number of reasons, tended to circulate much less, but a similar pattern of steadily increasing value can be discerned in the way that they have been sold over the centuries. The book ends with details of recent book auction sales.
