A reply to: Collier, Jeremy. A short view of the immorality and profaneness of the English stage.
With a half-title.
The words "Old batchelour, ... Mourning bride" are set in a column to the right of a brace bracket on title page.
A variant has the preliminary quarter-sheet reprinted and Sig [D6] a cancel. "... the verso of the half-title reads: '[rule] / ADVERTISEMENT. / An Ouersight in reading Superstition / for supposition in Mr. Collier's Book, / p.64. occasion'd a mistake in a small / number of these amendments, which / were first printed off; but in the remain- / der of the Impression, the Remark ground- / ed on that Mistake is omitted, Care being / taken to have that Leaf reprinted. / [rule] /'." In the variant state "a third erratum is added on verso of the title, and a sentence which appears on recto of the cancellandum (p.43) is omitted from the cancellans."--cf. Pforzheimer Catalogue.
Title page in two settings: line 2 of Latin quote from Salust has (1) "quem morbo" or (2) "quam morbo". Title page with "quem morbo" has 2 errata on verso; title page with "quam morbo" has 3 errata on verso, i.e. the variant delineated above by Pforzheimer.
