About this Item

Quarto, full crimson morocco, gilt dentelles, slight wear, minor spot on title, lightly and uniformly age tanned, few running titles slightly shaved and the word Epilogue at head of that leaf trifle shaved, very nice. This was the only comedy Dryden wrote that was ever ordered suppressed. It ran three nights only. The play was printed after Dryden himself excised parts deemed to be gross or offensive. What remains displays the Restoration stage at its lowest moral level. Having said that, and notwithstanding a few remaining spicy moments, it is rather a good work and one which Dryden himself thought was of the first rank. Wing D 2297; MacDonald 85a. The rare first editiion. Bookseller Inventory # 0334
