DETAILS

A nice clean copy.

Bound in marbled calf leather.

Rebacked with the original leather.

First edition thus.

Presentation copy from John Johnston of the Theatre Royal Covent Garden to Samuel Rogers.

Charles Macklin (1690 ?1797) was an actor and dramatist. He was one of the most distinguished actors of his day, equally in tragedy and comedy. He gained his greatest fame in the role of Shylock in The Merchant of Venice.

He wrote many plays, including Love a la Mode (1759), The School for Husbands, or The Married Libertine (1761), and The Man of the World (1781).

In 1735 Macklin quarrelled with a fellow actor named Hallam and accidentally killed the man by thrusting his cane through Hallam's eye. He was tried for murder, conducted his own defence, and won an acquittal.

 

Samuel Rogers, 1763 ? 1855, was an English banker and poet, during his lifetime one of the most celebrated, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. His recollections of these and other friends such as Charles James Fox are key sources for information about London artistic and literary life, with which he was intimate, and which he used his wealth to support. Rogers held various honorary positions: he was one of the trustees of the National Gallery; and he served on a commission to inquire into the management of the British Museum, and on another for the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament.

 

John Henry Johnstone, 1749 ? 1828, was an actor and singer. As information from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography tells us, Johnstone was originally articled to a Dublin attorney but later moved to London to join the cavalry regiment. After his discharge, he turned to singing and the stage. His first appearance was in Dublin, and remained on the Irish stage for ten years. In 1783 Johnstone went to London, engaged at Covent Garden for three years. Johnstone was enthusiastically received and continued at Covent Garden as a singer and actor until 1803. Then, he moved to Drury Lane, and remained with the company for the remaining seventeen years of his career, accompanying them to the Lyceum between 1809 and 1812. He was welcomed in Dublin in 1803 in ?genuine? Irish roles such as Sir Callaghan O'Brallaghan in Macklin's Love à la Mode, and became known as ?Irish Johnstone? for his superiority in Irish parts.
