[Plays. Selections. 1774]
Il vero amico commedia del signor dott. Carlo Goldoni.
In Venezia presso Agostin Savioli, 1774.
72 p. ; 18.2 cm. (8º)

Savioli's first edition of this play was apparently issued as part of vol. II of his collected edition of Le commedie del sig. dott. Carlo Goldoni, 13 vols, Venice, 1770--1772 with a special title-page dated 1770. For this edition see A. Scannapieco, 'Scrittoio, scena, torchio: per una mappa della produzione goldoniana', in G. Padoan (ed.), Problemi di critica goldoniana, vol. 7 (Ravenna 2000), pp. 232-233.

Copy Notes Bound last after a separate edition of Goldoni's I malcontenti from an unidentified collection (q.v.) and with four further plays by Goldoni published by Agostino Savioli: L'avventuriere onorato (q.v.), possibly issued as part of tome V of Agostino Savioli's edition of Le commedie del sig. dott. Carlo Goldoni, 13 vols, Venice, 1770--1772; and La bella selvaggia (q.v.), L'apatista (q.v.) and La donna bizzarra (q.v.) all dated 1773 and possibly issued as part of his edition of Le commedie del sig. dott. Carlo Goldoni, del teatro comico, 15 vols, Venice, 1770--1780. The volume is annotated in ink on front free-endpaper, possibly by Soane: Binding 15 B. / Each play 5B.
