Among our Stockton Axson Collection of 18th Century Drama, are many editions of Susanna Centlivre‘s The Busie Body, A Comedy. Her most successful play was performed for King George I and II and had 40 different editions by 1884.
That fact brings us back to Axson’s collection. The Rice English professor was unable to collect all 40 editions, but he did find 19. While not all of the editions have frontispieces, many do and some even showcase the actors who played the main character, Marplot.
