About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1927, this book provides a detailed history of the English court masque from its origins until the reign of Charles II. The text is illustrated with drawings of masque costumes and set designs, and Welsford discusses the influence that masque had on later drama and the significance that the revels had at the time. The book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British theatre history and court masque.
