MSS 8 - Memorandum-Book of Edward Alleyn, 1594-1616.

The contents, which occupy a small portion only of the volume, consist chiefly of notes of the purchase of the Bear Garden, the Fortune Theatre, Dulwich manor, and other properties, with lists of 'evidences' and particulars of price, subseqent profits, etc. On folio 41v (08-041v) is 'a generall note of all my writings, deedes or evidencis, bondes or bills belonging to me E Alleyn'. The small size of the volume suggests that Alleyn carried it easily in his pocket.
