1792 1ed John Bell’s British Theatre Illustrated Literature Comedies PLAYS 15v

Collection of beautifully illustrated works of British Theatre published by the famous John Bell.

John Bell, one of the most prominent English publishers, published an enormous collection of English literature including this set on British Theatre. This set was released after his first work “Poets of Great Britain” saw huge success. The illustrations and drawings in “British Theatre” were so impressive that they would heavily influence the illustrations later publishers would use!
