Volumes 3 and 4 of this monumen­tal paintings comprise complete entries for all such illustrious names as these of the Cibbers—Colley, Theophilus, and Susanna Maria—Kitty Clive, and Charlotte Charke, George Colman, the Elder, and the more youthful, William Davenant, and De Loutherboug. yet right here are also complete entries for dozens of vital secondary figures and of stripling ones whose tales have by no means been informed, in addition to a census (and a minimum of a number of recoverable proof) for even the main inconsiderable performers and servants of the theatres. As within the earlier volumes during this dis­tinguished sequence, the accompanying illus­trations contain no less than one photo of every topic for whom a portrait exists.
