Most widely held works by George Farquhar
The recruiting officer by George Farquhar( Book )

117 editions published between 1764 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition sheds light on Farquhar's work, highlighting its status as an account of army corruption and sexual intrigue, and its relevance to later literature such as Brecht's 'Trumpets and Drums', Keneally's 'The Playmaker' and Wertenbaker's 'Our Country's Good'
The beaux' stratagem by George Farquhar( Book )

111 editions published between 1707 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new edition, The Beaux' Stratagem is seen as a traditional work, combining characteristics of the Restoration comedy of manners with those of the more conventionally moral comedy that followed. Mr. Fifer discusses the numerous alterations made in the text during the century, many of which eliminated racy dialogue or diminished the importance of the marriage-divorce theme. Farquhar's views on divorce were influenced by Milton; he is also concerned here with the conflict between virtue and vice, and with the importance of money and its influence on personal freedom. Based on a collation of eight copies of the first quarto, this edition includes extensive discussion of text and stage history
