Poet Rupert Brooke began this volume as his dissertation in 1911-12 at King's College, Cambridge. His superior study won him a fellowship.
Jacobean dramatist John Webster (ca.1580-ca.1634) is best known for "The White Devil" (1612) and "The Duchess of Malfi" in the following year.
The English edition of Rupert Brooke's study is scarce. It is commonly found with browned pages and various defects. This is a tight, quite bright copy (very slight page browning); no bookplate or writing, and its label, though browned, is without chips and better than average.
