About this Item: John C. Nimmo, London, 1889. Cloth. Condition: Fair. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Illustrated by Parkes, R.B. & Lalauze, Adolphe (illustrator). First Edition Thus. In 2 volumes, 337 pp & 416 pp, 26 original mezzotint portraits by R.B. Parkes and 18 etching by Adolphe Lalauze, limited edition of 510 copies, this is number 307. A new edition of the 1740 original autobiography of Colley Cibber, "interspersed with characters and anecdotes of his theatrical contemporaries, the whole forming a complete history of the stage for the space of forty years". Cibber was the Poet Laureate of England (a purely political appointment apparently) and a historian of the English theater. Lowe compared all six previous editions of Cibber's work, carefully going back to the original and what was known of Cibber's corrections. In addition he has brought a number of rare documents, including Historia Histrionica, a copy of the Patent granted to Sir William Davenant, and a supplementary chapter which includes "the chief incidents of theatrical history up to the time of Cibber's death" along with the story of his famous quarrel with Pope, and a list of Cibber's dramatic productions and a biblography of works by or relating to him. The book is ex-library with all the usual markings and has a dark red library binding with gilt spine, handsome, but nothing like the original leather. A number of the fly pages are loosening. The library strengthened the pages containing the truly beautiful mezzotints, but in doing so caused stress on the text pages resulting in cracks at the top of neighboring pages. In Vol. II, page 307 is loose and another page has a chip out of the corner, slightly affecting text. The mezzotints, however, are in good condition, and they alone are worth the price of admission. A reading copy set with beautiful plates.; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 000170
