Notes

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).
