The Miss Orlebar copy of the Pavier quartos no longer exists as an intact volume. It hasn't been intact since some time before May 8, 1763, when Thomas Percy (1729-1811) recorded that King Lear had been removed. Two other plays had also been removed by that time: The Yorkshire Tragedy and Thomas Heywood's A Woman Killed with Kindness. The remaining plays were re-bound together in the 19th century, then separated and rebound individually at the Folger in 1963.
