About this Item

This is Volume VI (only) of The Comic Theatre from The Theatre, Tragic & Comic series that spanned 14 volumes total (volumes 1-7 comprising the tragic theatre, and 8-14 the comic theatre). Each volume contains an engraved frontis and four plays, separately paged, and each with its own special title page and engraved frontis. The four plays in this volume are: Love Makes a Man; or, the Fop's Fortune: A Comedy by C. Cibber (1774; 72pp). The Rehearsal: A Comedy by George Villiers, late Duke of Buckingham to which is added, a Key, or Critical View of the Authors and their Writings exposed in this Play, with the Life of the Author (1774; 84pp). A Bold Stroke for a Wife: A Comedy by Mrs. Centlivre (1774; 71pp). The Alchemist: A Comedy by Ben Johnson (1774; 91pp). This volume remains in its original leather binding with gilt lettering against red leather panels on the spine; the front board is detached, but present and there is a split in the leather running down the spine, as well as general wear to the spine ends and board extremities; despite all this, the book is actually fairly solid and well preserved. The book opens to the volume's engraved frontis, but the engraving for the first play is missing. The volume is otherwise complete including the engravings for each of the three remaining plays. The pages are generally clean and subtle with only light scattered foxing. Over-all a good, solid copy of this rare volume. Bookseller Inventory # 005419
