The Dramatic Works of Aaron Hill, Esq.
London - T. Lownds 1760 - A scarce collection of playwright Aaron Hill published only a decade after his death. In need of attention to the binding but well worth the effort. Bound in calf with gilt lettering and decoration. Complete in Two Volumes. With a life of Aaron Hill and a list of subscribers in Volume One. This work matches the ESTC record,#T34928. With a T. Lownds publisher's catalogue to the rear of Volume Two. Aaron Hill, 1685 - 1750, was a writer and entrepreneur. Recent cultural historians have accorded Hill a far more interesting and pivotal role as a pioneer of developments in stage scenery and drama, as a theorist of the Longinian sublime, and particularly for his unceasing activities on behalf of writers of very different political persuasions and literary gifts -ODNB. Condition: The text block bindings are tight and firm. The boards are detached. Therear boardof volume two is held by the cords only. There is significant wear to the extremities,including significantrubbing and edge wear, with marks andsome loss. The spine labels are missing. Internally the pages have some slight browning and light scattered foxing. Overall the condition is fair with a very good interior. A scarce work in need of a sympathetic binding.
