Burton's learned and satirical The Anatomy of Melancholy (first published in 1621) is one of the last great works of English prose to have remained unedited. This volume inaugurates an authoritative edition of the work, which is being prepared by a team of scholars from both sides of the Atlantic. It will be followed by two further volumes of text with textual apparatus, and two volumes of commentary.
