A handsomely bound copy of Congreve’s masterpiece, his last major comedy, and one of only a handful of plays of that era still in the modern theatrical repertoire: “a play that has sustained the highest literary reputation of all his work for its sheer verbal wit, its complex design, and its half-dozen brilliantly written and actable scenes” (ODNB).

Octavo. Contemporary burgundy calf, titles and decoration to spine, raised bands, single rule to boards, twin rule to turn-ins, cream endpapers, edges gilt. With black and white illustrations by John Kettelwell. Front joint cracked but still holding, short split to head of rear joint, some light shelf wear, a good copy attractively bound.
