Printed and published by The Scolar Press Limited,
and Ilkley, Yorkshire
By publishing facsimiles of books and manuscripts whose originals are generally difficult of access and often in fragile condition, the Scolar Press has made freely available accurate and attractive working copies of a wide range of literature in its primary form.
The Scolar list is particularly rich in historic English drama. The Elizabethan & Jacobean Drama series comprises thirty-nine texts which embrace both major and lesser writers and provides a convenient selection of the best texts and variants of representative plays until the closing of the theatres in 1642
Restoration and Eighteenth Century Drama consists of twenty-nine plays which extend in time from D'Avenant to Sheridan and which range over the full dramatic gamut of comedy, tragedy, history and their various permutations.
Great care is taken, as is demonstrated by this edition of The Wandering Patentee, to ensure that Scolar Press books are accurate facsimiles and not mere reprints. They are for the most part sold at prices which make them available to individuals as well as providing a valuable and inexpensive resource for libraries.
Descriptive lists of these and other Scolar series are available from The Sales Department, The Scolar Press, 39 Great Russell Street, London WCIB 3PH, or Main Street, Menston, Ilkley, Yorkshire, England.
