Headcap of vol. 2 damaged, front joints of each show some wear. § A posthumous collection of the writings of Sir John Harington (1561-1612) compiled and published here by one of his descendants, the Rev. Henry Harington (1727-1816). "[Harignton] wrote easily, and certainly was not a hero to himself. The most intimate facts of his domestic life afforded him materials for an epigram, and his frankness was entire. Hence he gives a living picture of life and society in his times, and abounds in incidental stories which throw great light upon many prominent persons". (Dictionary of National Biography).

First performed in Paris at the Comédie-Italienne (Hôtel de Bourgogne) on September 20, 1769. The originality of Grétry's opera, emphasized by Grimm in the Correspondance littéraire, is founded on its witty approach to the characters: the music dovetails sudden changes in their feelings and, in particular, captures ironic and self-ironic expressions... The farcical side of the opera is counterbalanced by lyrical, amorous duets between the two couples." Michael Fend in Grove Music Online. Grétry's operas, which enjoyed such a vogue in France... cannot be judged without the contribution of his librettists. Nevertheless, full credit must be given to his own contributions to the planning (partly revealed in his Réflexions d'un solitaire), as well as his unrelenting desire to extend the scope of both opéra comique and opéra. Grétry's very attractive melodic gift was an essential ingredient and helps justify the occasional revival of his music. With his librettists he brought to life a range of splendidly imagined characters, ranging from bumpkins to monarchs, or from a rebellious female warrior to the murderous Bluebeard. His best scores had wide currency, especially in Germany: it is hard to imagine the evolution of opéra comique, and Romantic opera in general, without the part played by his works."

A posthumous collection of the writings of Sir John Harington (1561-1612) compiled and published here by one of his descendants, the Rev. Henry Harington (1727-1816). “[Harignton] wrote easily, and certainly was not a hero to himself. The most intimate facts of his domestic life afforded him materials for an epigram, and his frankness was entire. Hence he gives a living picture of life and society in his times, and abounds in incidental stories which throw great light upon many prominent persons". (Dictionary of National Biography)
