The texts are presented in modern spelling and are annotated and introduced by scholars. The introductory matter in each volume is factual and historical, including a brief biography of the playwright, a list of works and dates of their first performance, an account of source material, a short critical bibliography, a stage history and a brief note on the texts used. The playwrights included are Marston, Webster, Tourneur, Massinger, Jonson, Middleton and Ford from the earlier period, and Etherege, Wycherley and Congreve from the Restoration.
