More About this Item


Description: Jonson (Ben) Catiline his Conspiracy. A Tragœdie, [third quarto edition], title browned and backed with ink notes to foot, some light creasing and marginal browning, later half roan, [Pforzheimer 542; Wing J1008], 4to, printed for A.C., 1669. ⁂ Scarce, as with all Jonson quartos from this period. Although Catiline did much to improve critical opinion of Jonson, the play was not a popular success. Indeed, the insistence on the title page of the 1635 second quarto edition that it is "now acted by His Majesty's Servants with great applause" has the ring of a publisher trying to earnestly boost sales. This edition is textually the better of the editions published after the 1616 folio and is an attempt to reproduce the text therein after the mangling of the 1635 edition.
