Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Samuel Pleasants

Description: 1 sheet [3 pgs.]; 27 cm. (fol.).


Only known copy is held in the special collections department of the University of Virginia. Sheet lacks colophon; Girardin advertised his new school exclusively in the Virginia Argus from November 1812 to April 1813, so this handbill almost certainly issued from the press of Samuel Pleasants as well; Girardin abandoned Richmond and his school there in early 1812 after losing his wife, a son, and several students in the Richmond Theater Fire of December 1811; sadly, the featured performance that fateful night was The Bleeding Nun, a French play that Girardin had translated into English for the Placide & Green theatrical company.
