The Rivals - A Comedy
John Wilkie, London 1775 - x, [6], 100pp. Bound in full tree calf, later rebacked, semi-raised bands, spine in six panels, morocco title / author label to second panel, remaining panels with central flower and leaf corner pieces in gilt. Very minor rubbing to extremities, internally some light browning, with some light occasional foxing, but generally fairly bright. Catchword 'EPI' on page one hundred, but the epilogue is found after the prologue at the front of the book as usual, Williams notes that the book was never issued with an Epilogue at the end. Sheridan's play, initially unsuccessful, was quickly rewritten and now considered a classic, and of course introduced us to Mrs. Malaprop. First edition, second issue, with page 79 correctly numbered. Not in Rothschild; Williams, pg 212; NCBEL II:818 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
