Description:

Small 12mo (121 x 75mm). 169pp. Engraved frontispiece of Miss Milner captioned in French below. Manuscript notice bound in after title describing characters in the acts. Near contemporary green paper boards, spine stamped in gilt with unknown heraldry surmounted by crown, speckled edges, silk bookmark; (margins trimmed, some slight offsetting; joints splitting). Second Edition, as named, and First Part of the French translation of the very popular novel Single Story by English dramatist, Elizabeth Simpson Inchbald. The first edition printed in 1791 in four volumes won a brilliant success. Despite the title, the novelís action is not straightforward: several characters, like Lord and Lady Elmwood, belong to the aristocratic world. It is a novel of two parts, the first concerns Miss Milner (we never know her first name) who, upon the death of her father, is placed in the care of a guardian, Mr Dorriforth. She loves him, but he is a Catholic priest. Single story was first translated into French by Deschamps (in 1791, 4 vols.) and Scribe drew a comedy Vaudeville-Theater for Madame (26 May 1826).
