Subject:        Playbills?

I'm interested in playbills from the Elizabethan/Jacobean era, partly
for their intrinsic interest and partly because I'm interested in the
stationers who successively held the monopoly on printing them (John
Charlewood until 1593, James Roberts from 1594 to 1615, William Jaggard
from 1615 onward).  William A. Jackson's *Records of the Court of the
Stationers' Company 1602-1640* (1957) says (in a note on page 2) that a
playbill printed by Jaggard for "his Maiesties seruants" survives as
British Library MS C.18.e.2 (74).  Has anybody on the list seen this
playbill?  What does it say, exactly?  Is it for a specific play?
