I recently read a fair chunk of Greg's writings on Shakespeare and can't recall 
an essay specifically on Hand C. However, the best thing to do is to look 
through the following:

F. C. Francis' 'List of Dr. Greg's Writings' /The Library/, 4th series, 26 
(1945), supplemented by D. F. McKenzie's 'The Writings of Sir Walter Greg, 
1945-59', /The Library/, 5th series, 15 (1960): 42-6.

Together these provide a comprehensive list of Greg's many publications. Laurie 
Maguire offers some corrections and additions to these lists at p. 344 of her 
/Shakespearean Suspect Texts/.

Cheers,
Andrew
