About this Item

Small quarto. [i]ff., iiipp., [i]ff., 80pp., [ii]ff. []4, B4-L4, M2. First edition. Half brown calf over marbled boards. Tinker 1130 (Goldsmith); NCBEL II, 831. Zobeide, his most successful play, was adapted from Voltaire's exotic tragedy, 'Les Scythes.' Voltaire paid it a compliment in a 1773 letter to Cradock: "Thanks to your muse, a foreign copper shines, Turned into gold, and coined in sterling lines." With his allusions to currency, perhaps Voltaire was subtly suggesting that royalties were due. Bookseller Inventory # 1880
