Administrative/Biographical history:

Patrick Robertson (1794-1855) was a Scottish judge. He produced writings on legal and literary topics.


Scope and content/abstract:

Rappresentata nella Casa Skenea, Edinburgo, Marzio 1832', and containing instructions to the printer. The manuscript is bound with a printed copy of Nugae Legales (according to the half-title only), containing the printed operetta and some other items.
