Paper repairs to the margins of the title and several leaves, not affecting the text; a few signature marks trimmed by a binder; very good copy.. 4to, modern quarter calf, marbled paper boards, gilt lettering. A late play by Shadwell, a somehat coarse comedy about scourers, whores and scoundrels - but in the end one of the scourers comes around to virtue. This was an early use of the word "Scowrer," which was later employed by Arthur Conan Doyle in The Valley of Fear (1914).
