    This edition presents the first modern-spelling, fully annotated texts of three important Elizabethan and Jacobean 'usury plays': Robert Wilson's The Three Ladies of London; William Haughton's Englishmen for My Money; and The Hog Hath Lost His Pearl by Robert Taylor. Among the subjects discussed in the introduction are early modern attitudes to money-lending, the lives and works of the three authors and the cultural context of the plays.
