Malone Society Book Sale

4 July-4 August 2017

We are delighted to announce our summer book sale, in which selected volumes from our back-catalogue are available at half price. Please go to our Online Shop to select and order your books. Volumes are £15 for non-members and £8 for members; members should enter the code ‘malsocmemsale’ when prompted on the ‘Checkout’ page. We are also pleased to offer a special rate for these volumes for customers in the US, as we can send them by domestic mail from our US stock, with postage and packing included. Please look for the volumes marked ‘US SALE ONLY P&P INCLUDED’ and enter the code ‘malsocussale’ to take advantage of this special rate. Members should also enter their member’s discount code.

The volumes are a representative sample of our work, including plays from the 1530s to the 1630s, manuscript plays and one of our ‘collections’ volumes. Meet errant knights, disguised heroines, magicians, the son of King Arthur, a brazen head, dragons and sea-monsters! Experience the invasion of Britain, the Battle of Alcácer Quibir and the Siege of Antwerp! Encounter a Renaissance that is funnier, more thrilling and queerer than you might imagine…
