Bibliotheca Histrionica A Catalogue of the Theatrical and Miscellaneous library of Mr John Field
London: Sotheby, 1827. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. 4to - over 8" tall. This is the auction catalogue of a collection of books made with a view "to the pursuit of a 'History of the English Drama'". A fire in the collector's library and business pursuits led him to submit the collection to auction. This volume, while complete, has a little fire damage to the lower fore-quarter of the first 20 pages, without loss of text. Water stain to top of last 7 pages and a few pencilled crosses in the margins at the end. Half bound and recased with a new spine. An uncommon survival of an early collection on the subject. 96pages plus a two page ad for Sotheby at end. An early auction catalogue on the history of Theatre and Drama spread over 6 days.
