Translation Info  
Notes 12mo (5 x 7 ½ inches). This is a very elegant copy of one of the most important works of criticism on English theatre. The Pforzheimer Catalogue states: "Few literary protests have been so completely successful in altering, or at least giving expression to an impending change in public taste, though its reputation is due to the effect which it produced and not to its merit as a piece of controversial writing." (Pforzheimer 189)
