Description: William D'Avenant was a poet and playwright during the tempestuous era of the English Civil War and the Interregnum. Although he published his unfinished epic poem Gondibert and saw the public performance of some of his plays, many were first published in this posthumous edition.
Condition/Repair: The leather covering has deteriorated. The book was rebacked at least once, and the sewing is holding together. The conservator recommends recovering it in calfskin, with new endpapers.
