Description

In contrast to each other, Volume 5 is a sociological portrait of mostly little people in their tragic and comic efforts to achieve fame on the London stage during the Restoration and eighteenth century, whereas Volume 6 is dominated by the glamour of David Garrick, Nell Gwyn, and Joseph Grimaldi, the celebrated clown. Some 250 portraits individualize the great and small of the theatres of London."
