Third edition, printed the same year as the first. "Collier found the English dramatic world in a vulnerable state, where the success of a play depended upon some extent on its grossness and indecency. The publication of this book marks a new era in English dramatic literature. Few literary protests have been so completely successful in altering, or at least giving expression to an impending change in public taste. The works of such contemporaries as Dryden, Congreve and Vanbrough are discussed here in detail." - XIMENES 64:109.
