Author: Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Publisher: London David Nutt 1902
First edition thus edited by Sheridan biographer Fraser Rae and with the Introduction by The Marquess of Dufferin and Ava. Also the first published edition of Mrs Francis Sheridan’s play, A Journey to Bath.
8vo., sometime finely bound in half dark blue morocco over marbled paper boards, lettered in gilt on spine. Spine slightly darkened otherwise a very good copy.
Sjheridan’s mother’s incomplete and unperformed play A Trip to Bath had a huge influence on his work and is said to have inspired his comedic play The Rivals.
