Dublin: Printed by Bartholomew Corcoran, 1774. Hardcover. This very scarce edition was published a year after the English edition, in the year of Goldsmith's death. The only copy of the Irish edition we found is in the Natlional Library of Ireland. Goldsmith was born in Ireland but spent most of his adult life in England. This still produced play was hugely popular in both countries and enjoyed several productions in 1773-74. Bound in modern red cloth covered boards with gilt title to spine. This wa probably bound by a library as there is evidence that there was a library label on the rear free end page (also modern). Minor rubbing and bumping to the corners of the oards and ends of the spine. The interior is generally very good, with minor browning and foxing through out. Untrimmed edges to laid paper. Some chipping to page edges. The top page edges may have been slightly trimmed and there is a remnant of a torn away page at the hinge opposite the title page. 66 pages. DRA/052908. Very Good +.
