The Gentle Craft
In this volume Simon Barker offers Deloney's tale in modern typography, with explanatory notes and an extensive introduction, a detailed account of the sources and influence of the book, its publication history, and what is known of its author. He suggests that Deloney's combination of romance with the practical morality of an emerging social class produced a text that is uniquely important for those interested in late-Elizabethan popular culture.
