Lot 334
SUCKLING, JOHN, Sir Fragmentea Aurea. A collection of all the incomparable peeces, written by... London: Humphrey Moseley, 1...
... London: Humphrey Moseley, 1646. Modern three-quarters red morocco, marbled sides by Fritz Eberhardt. 6 5/8 x 4 inches (16.5 x 10 cm); frontispiece [3] ff. (title and epistle dedicatory), complex pagination, the titles of the last two plays dated 1648 Close cropped, just touching text but apparently without loss.
An infamously complex book bibliographically, the first part appears to be ESTC R218856 for the first part (date underlined in type). Aglaura is likely ESTC R15687; Greg, 541b, with the separate title for the revised fifth act. The Goblins and The Tragedy of Bennoralt are apparently later imprint variants.
