MACDONALD. M’DONALD, Andrew. ~ The miscellaneous Works... including The Tragedy of Vimonda, and those Productions which have appeared under the Signature of Matthew Bramble, Esq. With various other Compositions, by the same Author. London: Printed for J. Murray... 1791.
8vo (206 × 133 mm), pp. [iii]–viii, 358, , 80, ; without the half-title; some spotting throughout, more so to Vimonda, light marginal waterstaining towards the end; nineteenth-century half calf, spine gilt.
First collected edition, published the year after M’Donald’s untimely death (he was only 33), and styled by the English Review as a ‘very humorous, pathetic, and interesting miscellany’. Although M’Donald’s Vimonda had been performed in both Edinburgh and London to much acclaim, it was a failure in print: the text here comprises the reissued sheets of the 1788 edition.
From the Allardyce Nicoll collection. Jackson, p. 167; Zachs, The First John Murray 839.
