Description: A Farce of Two Acts. As it is performed at the Theatre-Royal in Drury-Lane. 54pp., 8vo, modern plain wrappers; worn, tear to lower front corner. London: J. Newbery, 1759. A very good copy

Comments: "This is a very good farce," says Genest. George Selwyn expressed his satisfaction which is a relief from `Low Life above Stairs.'...The plot is rudimentary--that of a long-suffering master disguising himself in order to detect the rogueries of his servants...The printed book was also successful, and went through many editions, as was translated into German and French, and has been frequently produced on the stage in all parts of the world." DNB XIX, p.1028. Halkett and Laing III, p.37.

Dear Argosy, Thank you for arranging a cheaper price on delivery to Hong Kong. I can say on my honnour, that if Spielberg, Jackson or Lucas, signed a contract with me for the most incredible Spiritual Byzantine blockbuster Saga of all times in Motion pictures, I will come to your shop in person when we will release the 1st movie of the 1st trilogy among the 22 and I will give you back this money :-) Truly, in God! May the Mother of God and all Saints of Mount Athos bless you for ever and ever. - J-M S.
