    Honor among thieves

    I'd like to know how this idiom/expression came to be, its original and first use. Was it used by any authors, sounds like something that Shakespeare may have written.
    Any heolp will be appreciated.

    I am a first time user here, and need, or would love to get some guidance as to what's proper, and how can I get the most benefit fropm this.

    I'm Nom, a chronolgical grown up- age 62, living west of Boston, Ma.

    Thank You.

    It's Shakespeare all right. King Henry IV, Act I, scene ii.
