About this Item

[Possible First Printing] London: For J. Pridden, [1765]. A loose gathering of disbound (formerly) stitched folded sheets. Measures approx. 11-3/4 x 7-3/4 inches; 9, (1) pages. Illustrated with engraved frontis. Generally cited as the first English comic monologue, this is an early (first?) folio edition from the first year of publication of what would become an oft-printed, comic staple of 18th century theater. Pages evenly toned and lightly soiled, with (presumably) 18th century pen and pencil notes and corrections naming various performers. 1765 date is also penned on front page. Engraved plate appears trimmed at the bottom margin with a horizontal fold along one edge and slight margin loss (possibly as issued?) There are scattered short edge-tears throughout, and a few ink marks on the rear blank page. (eb). Bookseller Inventory # IX-8EOB-3KF3
