Volpone by Ben Jonson( Book )
184 editions published between 1607 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,951 libraries worldwide
"Volpone tells of a magnifico of Venice with no wife or children to whom to leave his fortune. The prospect of such wealth invites to his house an assortment of greedy hopefuls, ready to prostitute any ideals in the pursuit of money. Volpone's parasite, Mosca, assists him in milking these pretenders as they deserve. When Volpone and Mosca practice their schemes on innocent victims, however, the play turns in a more unpredictable direction and ends in a series of surprises. Subplot figures enrich the narrative of satirical exposure of greed, and the play is wildly comic in its depiction of plotting and counter-plotting." "In this edition by two distinguished scholars, an introduction discusses the significance of this formative and brilliant play. Detailed commentary is provided on meanings of difficult words, lines, references, and the like. The edition is designed for classroom use in both schools and colleges as well as for the more general reader in search of the best of Renaissance drama."--Jacket

Epicoene; or, The silent woman by Ben Jonson( Book )
88 editions published between 1616 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,568 libraries worldwide
"Epicene is now one of the most widely studied of Johnson's plays. Brilliantly exploiting the Jacobean convention whereby boys played female roles, it satirises the newly fashionable, and sexually ambiguous world of the West End of London, where courtly wit rubs shoulders with commercial values." "This authoritative new edition is based on a thorough re-examination of the earliest texts. The introduction analyses the play as originally written for the newly formed Children of the Queen's Revels, and performed at the little-known Whitefriars Theatre. Dutton discusses the composition of the play, which took place during a critical period in Jonson's life and career, where he was established as the principal writer of entertainments at the court. His relationships at the time with ambitious with such as John Donne, Sir Edward Herbert and the actor Nathan Field are examined as models for the principal characters."--Jacket

Eastward ho by George Chapman( Book )
16 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 1,047 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
