PEG WOFFINGTON 

Publisher: Montgomery Ward & Co., Chicago, N.D.
Very Good with no dust jacket. Reprint. 1. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering and elaborate reverse-gilt floral decoration on spine and cover. nd (cir. 1901). 16mo. 244 pp. Illustrated with frontispiece portrait of the author. VERY GOOD. Peg Woffington was born in Dublin in 1714. Her charm and beauty as a child attracted attention, and at the age of 10 she acted in the role of Polly Peachum in The Beggar`s Opera. She made her first important appearance in Dublin in 1737 as Ophelia and followed it with her greatest role, the male role of Sir Harry Windair in Farquhar`s Constant Couple, which in 1740 led to her engagement by John Rich for Covent Garden. She was Garrick`s leading lady in London and Dublin from 174248. Her attachment to Garrick was the most publicized of her numerous affairs. She retired in 1757 due to ill health. She was best suited for comedy, although her grace and vivacity helped to overcome the harshness of her voice in tragic roles. This Charles Reade novel, and his play Masks and Faces are based on her life. Gift inscription on front endpaper. Heel and head of spine slightly worn. Spine slightly cracked. B&W Frontispiece. 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. 244 pp
