*The Companion To The Playhouse*, printed in Garrick's day and containing very
full descriptions of that great actor's style of performance, had the following
plays atrributed to Shakespeare in M DCC LXIV:

        The London Prodigal
        The Life and Death of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, the Favourite of King
                Henry VIII
        The History of Sir John Oldcastle, the good lord Cobham.Tragedy.
        The London Prodigal. Comedy.
        The Puritan, or The Widow of Watlinbg Street. Comedy.
        A Yorkshire Tragedy. This is rather an Interlude than a Tragedy, being
                very fhort, and not divided into Acts.
        The Tragedy of Locrine, the eldest Son of King Brutus.

[Printed for T.Becket and P.A.Dehondt, in the Strand; C.Henderson, at the Royal
Eschange; and T.Davies, in Russel-Street, Covent Garden.]

Regarding Michael Norman's quey about finding works erroneously attributed to
Shakespeare:

See the section Play Groups/Apocrypha in the annual World Shakespeare
Bibliography (in _Shakespeare Quarterly_) or search under the keyword
"attribution" or "apocrypha" in the _World Shakespeare Bibliography on CD-ROM_.
