The Governess, a Comic Opera: as It is Performed at the Theatre-Royal in Crow-Street
Dublin: s.n., 1777. Dublin piracy. Lacking half-title. [iv], 39 [i.e. 40] pp. (pp. 38, 39 and 40 misnumbered 32, 38 and 39 respectively). 12mo. Disbound. Correct character names supplied in pencil on dramatis personæ page ("Isaac" for Enoch Issachar, etc). In gray card folder. Dublin piracy. Lacking half-title. [iv], 39 [i.e. 40] pp. (pp. 38, 39 and 40 misnumbered 32, 38 and 39 respectively). 12mo. Pirated Dublin edition of Sheridan's popular burlesque opera The Duenna, with the title and character names changed. An early owner has supplied the correct names in pencil on the dramatis personæ page (i.e. "Isaac" for Enoch Issachar, "Antonio" for Octavio). The text was taken down by shorthand during a Dublin performance and differs substantially from the authorized London edition of 1794. The manager of the Crow-Street theater was unsuccessfully prosecuted for his involvement in staging this unauthorized version. ESTC notes two variant mispaginations; this copy with the final three pages mispaginated. ESTC T138772; Williams, p. 215
