Well, we know that playhouses maintained libraries of playscripts, and 
we know that at least some scripts were kept at the playhouse. But, of 
course, there is a big difference between scripts and reference books. 
Would a big name dramatist like Shakespeare be able to obtain a research 
budget -- with the expectation that the books purchased on this budget 
be kept in the playhouse library?
