Introduction and illustrations original to this edition. Introduction by Austin Dobson. Front cover and spine illustrated. 298 pages. From the Introduction: "From a biographical point of view, Mrs. Woffington's fate has been curious. She has been made (as one of her critics has said) the heroine of a romance which is more than half a memoir -- she has been made the heroine of a memoir which is more than half a romance". "To the volume which is avowedly fiction, and which is by Charles Reade, the following pages are intended as an introduction, whose modest function -- in addition to supplementing certain portions of Margaret Woffington's career only partially treated by the novelist -- is to recapitulate the leading incidents of that career as they have been ascertained by her more recent biographers".
