Small quarto. Later boards, spine chipped, but contents very good. Prologue and Epilogue written by John Dryden. Early reprint of this 17th century English play which may have been written by Bacon. It is significant that Bacon is not mentioned in the trial of Essex. The part that Bacon took in the trial was much noted by the public of that time, and had Banks really written the play, it is scarcely possible that he would have omitted Bacon. Bacon himself would naturally do so. Bookseller Inventory # D291
