Biography of the English actor, playwright, theatre manager and producer, David Garrick (1717-1779), a friend of Samuel Johnson's who had also been Johnson's pupil at the Edial Hall School. Appropriate for readers of all ages, this study of Garrick and his times, brings in the great figures of Samuel Johnson and Boswell, Peg Woffington, Garrick's wife Eva Maria, William Hogarth, Henry Fielding, and Frances ''Fanny'' Burney.

Anna Bird Stewart (b.1880) based her book on a lifetime of interest in Garrick. She had visited every village and town in England associated with Garrick, from Lichfield to London, and presents much new material collected from both the great American collections and at places where Garrick lived.
