Caption titles.
Imprint from p. 4; same imprint (with minor differences) on p. 46.
Possibly printed for sale either 1) as a collection of 12 or more numbers assembled for binding in stacks of folded half-sheets, one on top of another (rather than in stacks of gatherings), or 2) in parts of 1 folded half-sheet (4 p.) each.
Zorinski, an opera by Samuel Arnold to a libretto by Thomas Morton, was first performed in 1795. Cf. New Grove dictionary of music and musicians, v. 1, p. 618.
The travellers in Switzerland, an opera from 1794 by William Shield, was performed with interpolations by various composers.
The music for Sally in our alley is by Henry Carey.
The library's (incomplete?) copy is bound with the pages in the following order: 46, 5, 47, 4; possible evidence of a previous method of binding is offered by 3 evenly spaced holes along the left-hand side (presently the outside edge) of p. 46.
