The Beggar's Opera. Written by Mr. Gay . . . the Eighth Edition.

London: Printed for the Proprietors, and sold by the Booksellers in Town and Country, 1753. Stated eighth edition. 12mo, removed (no wrappers), 60 pages. Some light soiling, foxing and browning; a very good copy. Item #15379

Perhaps published in competition with the Foulis edition of the same year, this cheap edition of the ballad opera with the book only (without the music) as published. Curiously, ESTC notes a single location (the Lilly Library at Indiana).

Price: $50.00
