The Dramatic Works of Thomas Dekker 8 Volume set
Originally published in four volumes between 1953 and 1961, this edition of Thomas Dekker's plays was the first to appear in print since the late nineteenth century. It was edited by Professor Fredson Bowers, who presented a critical old-spelling text of the ordinarily accepted canon, together with a few works not collected previously but which seemed to merit inclusion in a collection of Dekker's plays. In 1980 and 1981, Professor Cyrus Hoy augmented Professor Bowers' existing four-volume edition with a complementary four-volume set of introductions, notes, and line-by-line commentaries to each of the twenty-five plays. All eight volumes have been collected here in a single set, offering Professor Bowers' original edition of Dekker's works in tandem with the full complement of critical material by Professor Hoy.
