Complete and unabridged, with an introduction by Felix E. Schelling and a new timeline of the life and times of Ben Jonson, this elegantly designed, jacketed hardcover edition of The Alchemist is an essential collectible.

First performed in 1610, The Alchemist was part of a quartet of comedies known for their wit, brilliant dialogue, and shrewd caricatures. Thought to be Jonson’s best comedy, The Alchemist follows the satirical trail of deception when the gentleman Lovewit leaves his London home due to the plague, leaving behind his servant, Face, who endeavors to dupe all manner of folks—and relieve them of their funds—with the aid of fellow con artists. What ensues is a brilliant depiction of human folly.

Essential volumes for the shelves of every classic literature lover, the Chartwell Classics series includes beautifully presented works and collections from some of the most important authors in literary history. Chartwell Classics are the editions of choice for the most discerning literature buffs.
