SEPTEMBER: Elizabeth Cary
The Tragedy of Mariam

Mariam thinks that her husband Herod is dead. But she’s not too upset as he murdered her grandfather and brother. When Herod actually turns up alive, Salome, Mariam’s sister-in-law from hell, accuses her of infidelity. Will Herod believe his sister and will he be a just ruler upon his return? Find out in this month’s featured volume!


 The Society’s edition, first issued in 1914, is a type-facsimile of the Quarto of 1613, the only early edition.  As currently in print, the book incorporates a 1992 supplement updating the original introduction.
