About this Item

The stated sixth edition, first was 1702. The play was also issued as part of "The dramatick works of the late Sir Richard Steele," published in London, in 1733 and again in 1736. The text is ornamented with initials, and head- and tailpieces. Here, Lord Brumpton's family and wards are taken advantage of by his hypocritical widow; the outward trappings of mourning are mocked. Considered one of Steele's best pieces. 12mo. 82, [2 (1 blank)] pp. ESTC N18429. Very good; disbound from a nonce volume. Several pages with the rubber-stamp of a now-defunct library. A few stray pencil marks. Bookseller Inventory # 10700
