Notes

A rare Foulis edition, the only printing they produced of this masque based on Fenelon's popular novel. George Graham (d. 1767) was an English writer, though with family connections to the Duke of Montrose which may explain how the London printing of his major work was followed not only by a Dublin reprint but this Scottish edition. The play received mixed reviews, though Samuel Johnson praised it, and it saw a musical adaptation. While the London first is reasonably widely held, this edition is located by ESTC in the BL and NLS only.
