[Jonson's Works, Part III. (posthumous)] The Magnetic Lady, &c. With separate titles to the several portions. London, 1640-1. Folio. A-P in fours: Q, 2 leaves: R-V in fours: [a new set of signatures with the Horace:] A-L 2 in fours Timber, &c., M-R in fours: Underwoods, &c., Z-Oo in fours (no S-Y in former alphabet): Pp-Qq, 2 leaves each (Qq 2 probably blank): Mortimer, title and 2 leaves: Christmas His Masque, &c., B (and a new paging)-R 2 in fours: S-Y 2 in fours.

This completed (with the exception of the Case is Altered and the New Inn, not yet published in folio) the collection of Jonson's dramatic and other writings. It was printed without any general titlepage, although that belonging to the folio of 1640 is occasionally inserted in front of it. In fact, the three portions of the poet's works here described should properly form one volume, 1616-31-40-1.
