Title: The Works of Ben Jonson, 1692

The first complete collected edition of the Works of Benjamin Jonson, English playwright and poet. Jonson was known for satirical plays such as Every Man in His Humour, The Alchemist, and his lyric and epigrammatic poetry. Quoting the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Jonson was "generally regarded as the second most important English dramatist, after William Shakespeare, during the reign of James I."
This is the third folio edition, but the first collecting all his works to date, adding "The New Inn" and "Leges Convivales," which were not included in the collected editions of 1616 and 1640.
One volume in folio, 744 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the binding, and a scratch to the rear board. There is some foxing and staining throughout. The frontispiece by Jonson engraved by Elder is lacking.
