‘The New English Drama’ is a fascinating early 19th-century collection of English plays by marquee playwrights and satirists from Irish and British history. Collected and published in 1818 by W. Oxberry, this twelve-volume set includes the works of both major and minor authors including Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Samuel Foote, Francis Gentleman, James Townley, and John Gay. However, the best inclusion of this work is the plays of William Shakespeare. Curiously, many 19th-century annals of English plays omit Shakespeare as his works generally deserve their own collection.

 

This fine edition is also supplemented with over 50 illustrated engravings including portraits of many of the authors.
