The Life of an Actor.
London: C.S. Arnold, 1825. Half morocco, 10 inches tall. A fine tall copy of this hilarious volume highlighting the perils of a thespian life. Bound in a later half crushed morocco with gilt raised bands, very fine gilt tooling to the panels and gilt top edge. First Edition. With vignettes and 27 hand-coloured aquatints by Theodore Lane. Slight rubbing and one plate creased but overall a splendid copy of this scarce title. From the Library of the Late Christopher Foyle of Beeleigh Abbey.
