The revised and expanded third edition of Fielding's third play, a comic ballad opera first staged in 1730. A note on the title-page reads: "This piece was originally acted at the Hay-Market, and revived some years after at Drury-Lane, when it was revised, and greatly alter'd by the author, as now printed." The revised version was staged in 1734, though not printed, as here, until 1750.
