INTRODUCTIONCeneton (Census Nederlands toneel) describes all manuscripts and editions of Dutch drama until 1803. This date was chosen because in that year the final old edition of one of play by the art society Nil Volentibus Arduum was published. By Dutch drama we mean all texts written for production of which a Dutchman is the author, so also translations and plays in other languages. Ceneton now includes (18th of June 2013) data on 11.800 plays (numbered Ceneton00001 - 22051). The most important data have been published on World Wide Web:
On these plays the following information is given: Serial number; Author; Original author; Short title; Complete title; Transcription of title page; Place of publication; Printer and/or publisher; Year of publication; Genre; Represented place; Represented time; Number of acts; Dramatis personae; Incipit; Dedication: addressee and applicant; Bibliographical collation; Fingerprint; Illustrations: artists, technique; Notes on publication; Shelf marks of copies in more than 30 public libraries.
At this site, you can read 360 plays in full text and/or in facsimile edition.
