About this Item

Very fine press book beautifully printed on handmade paper. 1/4 bound in green leather over marbled boards. Near mint copy with green stained top and untrimmed bottom and fore-edge. In good solid yet slightly soiled slipcase. this is the page after the dedication page and is written in Olde English, which I will translate as best I can. ( Announcement by desire. by his Majesty's company. At the Theater Royal in Drury-lane, this present season being the Spring of 1923. The first performance of Dr. Johnson given by an immortal cast including Sir Joshua Reynolds, Mr. Thrale, Mr. Thrale, Mr.Boswell, Mr. Garrick, Mrs Thrale, Miss Burney, Mr. Goldsmith, Mrs Woffington, and Price adjusted to the boards ( with alterations) by Mr. Newton, a gentleman of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. Places for the performance many now be featured. Nothing under full price will be taken. no money to be taken at the stage-door, nor any money to be returned after the curtain is drawn up. It is hop'd no gentlemen will take it ill that they can't be admitted behind the scenes. VIVANT REX & REGINA. " There is also a facsimile of an attempt by Christopher Morley to dictate to the author a poem, which regards his book. Quite interesting and funny. Book would be mint if not for slight fading to spine label, which is darkened. Number 312 of 585 copies signed by Newton. A finely printed great collectible. Bookseller Inventory # 000739
