A double playbill advertising a staging at the Theatre Royal, Leeds of Edward Stirling's (1807-1894) three-act drama Raby Rattler, purportedly adapted from a story by poet and journalist Eliza Cook (1812-1889) though we can find no such publication attributed to her; indeed the only candidate title that we have been able to locate is Thomas Hall's (fl. 1845-1864) 'Effects' and adventures of Raby Rattler (1845).
