The Emperors Favourite, which appears in print for the first time, is one of four anonymous seventeenth-century plays bound in a single volume in the library of the Newdigate family of Arbury Hall, Nuneaton. Tentatively attributed to John NewdigateMoreThe Emperors Favourite, which appears in print for the first time, is one of four anonymous seventeenth-century plays bound in a single volume in the library of the Newdigate family of Arbury Hall, Nuneaton. Tentatively attributed to John Newdigate III (1600-1642), the play uses the story of the rise and fall of Crispinus, favourite of the Emperor Nero, to mount a critique of the influence of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham (1592-1628) at the courts of James I and Charles I.

The volume is illustrated with ten color plates from the manuscript and from John Newdigates 1628 Parliamentary Diary.
