Those featured in Volume 10 include Margaret Martyr, a singer, actress, and dancer whose “conjugal virtues were often impeached,” according to the July 1792Thespian Magazine. The Diction­ary describes this least constant of lovers as “of middling height, with a figure well-proportioned for breeches parts. [Her] black-haired, black-eyed beauty and clear soprano made her an immedi­ate popular success in merry maids and tuneful minxes, the piquant and the pert, for a quarter century.”

Review:

“No major reference library can afford to ignore these works in which the authors Philip H. Highfill, Jr., Kalman A. Bur­nim, and Edward A. Langhans continue their census of London theatrical per­sons of all ranks, from the Restoration to the Regency—clowns and carpenters, scene painters and strolling players, dan­cers and dwarfs, managers and monolo­gists. Theirs is the fruit of a search of many years through sixty-five libraries. The entries are illuminated by portraits and illustrations gleaned from public galleries and private collections all over the world. The set is a reference work of the first order.”—Theatre & Performing Arts Collections



“This multi-volume work is one of the most important reference aids to be published on the English theatre of the Res­toration and eighteenth-century.”

—American Reference Books Annual



“An indispensable reference.”—The English Association

“A reference set of the first importance.”—The Eighteenth Century
