Macdonald 87b; Wing D-2265; ESTC R16601. Binding with light scuffing and soiling, one vellum corner abraided and a small bump to fore edge; title a little soiled and with two small tears (no text affected), margins trimmed close (running titles occasionally grazed), paper very lightly toned and with the odd small ink stain or other minor blemish, but only a trace of foxing to final few leaves, and on the whole a very nice copy of this play, based on events from the reign of Henry III and briefly banned "because its presentation of French history was too palpably a parallel with contemporary events." (DNB).
