Handset in Caslon at the Shakespeare Head Press. One of 50 (450) copies printed on Batchelor's Kelmscott paper and specially bound (this not numbered, but Hugh Macdonald's copy). 6 inserted plates. Full stiff vellum bound over thongs, gilt spine titling and green ribbon ties. A fine copy. (Tucker 9)

A page-for-page reproduction of the 1573 edition, omitting the ttwo plays by Gascoigne ("Supposes" and "Jocasta") and most of the prose from "The adventures of Master F.I.". Although usually considered the work of George Gascoigne, and later reprinted with considerable changes in his "Posies," 1575, and his "Whole woorkes," 1587, the present editor believed him to be only one of several authors whose work is included. "G.T.", he supposes to be the Earl of Oxford, "F.I.", Sir Christopher Hutton.
