SKU: 125 Categories: ,


Follow the adventures of Wit on his path to woo Wisdom, whom he has been ordered to marry on pain of losing his inheritance. On the way he is robbed by Idleness, bored by Honest Recreation, and imprisoned by Fancy. But will Wit and Wisdom finally tie the knot?

The Marriage of Wit and Wisdom was written by Francis Merbury around 1579. The Society’s edition is a diplomatic transcript of the unique MS (British Library, Add. MS 26782), which is of especial interest for its resemblance to a printed edition; it was prepared by T.N.S. Lennam.
