[6] pp 66 Wycherley's first play which brought him into disfavour with the King's mistress the Duchess of Cleveland. Bound in half vellum over marbled boards with black morocco spine and gilt lettering during the second quarter of the 19th century - binder's ticket of 'T Connolly, 10 Up. Ormond Quay, Dublin'; red edges to text block. Collated and complete as per ESTC, a very good copy of this early eighteenth century quarto edition, very slight browning only to paper stock, unmarked pages apart from tiny burn marks on pages 21/22. There are no inscriptions. An attractive copy of a very uncommon imprint from the collection of the nineteenth century financier sir Isaac Lyons Goldsmid (1778-1859). Wycherley's plays are highly regarded for their 'acute social criticism, particularly of sexual morality and the marriage conventions' (Drabble).
