Description

Those featured in Volume 10 include Margaret Martyr, a singer, actress, and dancer whose conjugal virtues were often impeached, according to the July 1792 "Thespian Magazine. The Dictionary "describes this least constant of lovers as of middling height, with a figure well-proportioned for breeches parts. [Her] black-haired, black-eyed beauty and clear soprano made her an immediate popular success in merry maids and tuneful minxes, the piquant and the pert, for a quarter century. "
