Book Details: This satirical volume parodies the behavior of the young men of London in the early seventeenth century. "The Gull's Hornbook" is one of Dekker's best-known non-dramatic works. Thomas Dekker, playwright and pamphleteer, is of obscure origins, and his own words are often the only source for personal details. An accomplished Latin scholar, he translated Fredriech Dedekind's Latin poem "Grobianus" as "The Gulls Horne-Book" (1609). (DNB)
Condition / Notes: This is a scarce limited edition of this work, one of 650 copies produced. The antique volume is bound in plain paper-covered boards with a tan cloth backstrip. The book shows light to moderate external age/wear. The pages show mild to moderate age toning, heaviest in the margins. The work is illustrated with decorative initials.
