FRO’NTBOX. n.s.

frontbox-ns

FRO’NTBOX. n.s. [front and box.] The box in the playhouse
from which there is a direct view to the stage.
How vain are all these glories, all our pains,
Unless good sense preserve what beauty gains!
That men may say, when we the frontbox grace,
Behold the first in virtue, as in face. Pope’s Rape of the Lock.
