The first complete collected edition, and the first to be printed in one volume. Jonson saw only the first three plays through the press of the 1640 continuation of his 1616 volume, and his failure to complete the collection then "was probably due to the damning by the town of The New Inn which was published in 1631" (Pforzheimer). The New Inn was collected here for the first time.
