Very Good. Yale Studies in English LXXXI. An Irish-born writer and dramatist, Thomas Southerne (1660-1746) was a friend of John Dryden and wrote prologues and epilogues for several of Dryden's plays. However, he is chiefly remembered for his two sentimental tragedies, The Fatal Marriage (1694) and Oroonoko (1696), both based on novels by Aphra Behn. Some mild browning and wear along the extremities of the original printed paper wrappers; otherwise very good.
