Notes: 4to: [pi]² b² B-U². (KU-S copy wanting h-t (pi1 (p. [i-ii])).
The 2nd ed. does not have the dedication to Mrs. Abington and the "Advertisement" (beginning "If satire is a useful species of writing ... ")--is expanded to 4p. (b1r-b2v (p. [v]-viii)).
Wrongly attributed to David Garrick, who is described as "exceedingly blameable" for the sorry state of Drury Lane Theatre and pictured in the t.p. engraving (as Roscius)--trampling on the writings of Jonson, Shakespeare, etc.; Covent Garden and George Colman are also taken to task (p. [65] caption title: "The view of Covent-Garden Theatre", with an engr. of Colman sitting in the lap of Mother Shipton.).
In-house MS correction: p. 28, l. 8 "transactions" corrected to "Transitions" in the same hand as KU-S copy of 1st ed.
Description: [i-v] vi-viii, [1], 6-80 p. : ill. (engr.) ; 26 cm.
