above all praise


Senior Member
“I have overheard, and approve of all you have said. And, Ferdinand, if I have too severely used you, I will make you rich amends, by giving you my daughter. All your vexations were but trials of your love, and you have nobly stood the test. Then as my gift, which your true love has worthily purchased, take my daughter, and do not smile that I boast she is above all praise.”

From Tales From Shakespeare by Charles Lamb

What does above all praise mean?
Does it mean she's better than whatever is said of her?
Please help. Thank you.
