Women beware women by Thomas Middleton( Book )
159 editions published between 1657 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,407 libraries worldwide
One of the great Renaissance playwrights, Middleton wrote tragedies essentially different from either Marlowe's or Shakespeare's, being wittier than the former and more grittily ironic than the latter. The genre of 'citizen tragedy' came into its own in the eighteenth century, but Middleton can claim to have created it: Bianca, wife of a middling commercial agent, arouses the lust of the Duke of Florence and becomes his mistress, first secretly, then openly and finally, after her husband has been seduced by the scheming Lady Livia and stabbed by Livia's brother, the Duke's wife. Livia plots he

Michaelmas Term by Thomas Middleton( Book )
45 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,340 libraries worldwide
"One of five satiric city comedies that the young playwright Thomas Middleton wrote for the boy players of St. Paul's Catherdral sometime before 1607, Michaelmas Term is set in a vividly detailed, realistic urban milieu at the start of London's social season. The play comes alive through the central contest between Ephestian Quomodo, an ambitious, land-hungry city merchant, and Richard Easy, a naive land-owning gallant just arrived in the city. Easy is soon deep in dept and his struggle to recoup his losses and reclaim his land from Quomodo takes place against a sharply drawn set of London types - Quomodo's socially and sexually ambitious wife and daughter, the Scottish upstart Andrew Lethe and his mistress the Country Wench eager to exchange her virginity for an elegant new wardrobe." "This edition, newly collated and edited, features complete explanations of the play's often bawdy exchanges and the complex stage action of the gulling and secondary plots. It will be invaluable for advanced students of the Middleton canon as well as all those interested in early modern London and its vibrant theatrical culture, especially the tradition of boy choristers as professional actors."--Jacket

"Sebastian has a problem. He's in love with a girl but his father won't agree to their marriage. In desperation he turns to the one person who can help him, the fearless and feisty 'roaring girl' Moll Cutpurse. In a London fuelled by greed and desire, the charismatic, cross-dressing heroine Moll has the world wrapped around her little finger, and she has a plan. Cutting a joyously independent path through the underhand scheming and petty vendettas of the London underworld, Moll proves more than a match for any man."--Page 4 of cover

"Hengist, King of Kent (also known as The Mayor of Quinborough) was one of the most popular plays of the 1630s and 1640s.

The play exists in two manuscript texts (both from the 1640s) and an early printed quarto (1661); this is one of the rare plays of the period that exists in early manuscript copy."--Provided by publisher
