An entertaining and popular collection of hundreds of anecdotes about public, literary and theatrical figures, dedicated to David Garrick, "by permission." On the title-page is stated "Second Edition, Greatly Improved and Enlarged," but according to ESTC this appears to be the third edition. The first was published in 1754, under a slightly different title, following by second edition in 1775 and this edition in 1778. ¶ Contemporary ink signature of "de Schutiorff / Bath / Price 5.0" on each title-page.
