Book Description

The devil of a wife: or, a comical transformation. As it was acted by His Majesty’s servants at the theatre in Dorset-Garden. The Seventh Edition. London: Printed for J. Knapton, at the Crown in St. Paul’s Church-Yard, 1724. 12mo. [12], 56, [4]p. Engraved frontispiece. Recent paper wrapper. A small blank corner torn from the foot of the frontispiece, not affecting the image. This play was popular from the time of its first performance in 1686. The plot is based on the story of Mopsa, taken from Sidney's Arcadia. It is Jevon's only play, possibly written with the assistance of his brother in law Thomas Shadwell. Jevon acted, mostly comedy parts on the London stage from 1673 to 1688.
