Ben Jonson's Works, 1616, 1st Edition
Item Details
Description
Jonson, Ben. THE WORKES. London: Will Stansby, 1616. 11.5" x 7". Wanting leaves Ee5-6 and Ff5-6; with initial blank. Early paneled calf. ****************** FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, LARGE PAPER COPY, of this very important theatrical work second only to Shakespeare's folio. Shakespeare's name actually appears twice in Jonson's folio, where he is listed among the principal players. Large paper copies are quite rare, though the present copy was trimmed by the binder more so than other examples. This copy also contains some infrequent early marginalia, including some markings which may have been made for theatrical performance. [Pforzheimer 559; STC 14751] –
Condition
Front board partially detached but holding by upper cords, rear hinge cracked but intact, leather with chips and general wear consistent with age. Title trimmed and chipped at foot and the whole laid down, Yy5 with corner-chip removing several letters of text, a few other instances of similar marginal chips without loss, some light and faded marginal water-stains, occasional soiling and foxing.
