LE MAGASIN THÉÂTRAL ...
Le Magasin Théatral, choix de pièces nouvelles, jouées sur les théatres de Paris. [Tomes II.--XII.]
Paris: Marchant, éditeur, 1834--1836.
11 vols ; 26.5 cm. (8º)

Some volumes additionally have the imprint of Jouaud, Bruxelles. Within each volume, each play (numbering usually between 20 and 25) is paginated separately, some with their own title-pages, mostly with drop-head titles only; each volume has a 'Table des Matières' at the end. The later numbers have lithographic frontispieces. The series extended throughout the 1830s and 1840s, publicising new works of the Parisian stage and exerting a strong commercial influence on the transmission of French authors throughout Europe. At the end of the first year of quarterly publication in 1834, two tomes of Supplements were added alongside the quarterly volumes for 1835. In the Soane set, the Supplements and all but the third of the volumes for 1835 are in printed wrappers dated 1836, apparently the point at which the two Supplement volumes were assigned the volume numbers V--VI, with those for 1835 continuing the new numbering from tome VII.




Copy Notes Vols I--XIII only, 1834--1836, the wrappers of vols IX and XI having the volume numbers added in ink. Unopened.
