The second volume in the Cambridge Edition of the Works of John Webster contains The Devil's Law-Case, A Cure for a Cuckold, and Appius and Virginia. This critical edition preserves the original spelling and incorporates the most recent editorial scholarship, including valuable information on Webster's share in the collaborative plays. In particular, it integrates the plays' theatrical aspects with bibliographical and literary features.
