The alchemist by Ben Jonson( Book )
427 editions published between 1196 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 5,852 libraries worldwide
"The Alchemist is a sublimely accomplished satirical farce about dreams of self-refinement: people want to transform themselves into something nobler, richer, more powerful, and more virile just as base metal was touted to be transformed into gold in the alchemical process. First performed in 1610 and set in the same contemporary London time period, the plot revolves around scheming con artists during their master's absence from the house. Face, Subtle and Doll Common dupe a series of "customers" whose desire for aggrandizement leads them to believe in the existence of the fabled "Philosopher's Stone". As their equipment boils over and blows up in the offstage kitchen, so their plot heats up and is exploded by the skeptical Surly and the arrival of their master who quietly pockets their proceeds and marries the rich widow to boot. The play is generally considered Ben Jonson's best comedy, deftly exposing human foible and foolishness to mockery and has continued to thrive in stage productions."--Publisher's description

Eastward ho by George Chapman( Book )
51 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,126 libraries worldwide
A collaboration between Jonson, Chapman and Marston, 'Eastward Ho!' is a masterpiece of city comedy. Unique among the 'coterie' city comedies written for boy players, 'Eastward Ho!' gives all classes a full satiric treatment simultaneously didactic, ironic, and triumphantly comic. 'Eastward Ho!' was performed at the Blackfriars playhouse in 1605. The play may well have been provoked by Dekker and Webster's 'Westward Ho!', produced by Paul's Boys in 1604; 'Eastward Ho!' parodies the earlier play's form

Every man out of his humour by Ben Jonson( Book )
77 editions published between 1600 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 746 libraries worldwide
"Jonson's Every Man Out of His Humour is a comical satire about envy and aspiration among the ambitious middle classes, who think happiness is to be found in fame and material fortune. Cynical depictions of urban greed, aggression, violence, misogyny, sexuality, education, conflicts of family, class and gender, commercial and personal risk-taking, all have dynamic places in the play's whirl of activity, through which Jonson exposes the importance of seeing and judging the world as it is and not being duped by its pretences. Jonson helped form English satirical drama with this play in 1599, and its popularity spearheaded a whole new movement in the writing of comedy as social critique."--Jacket
