Auflage: 1st Edition
Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, xix, 508 pp. 3234 entries. The authors of this bibliography list a hundred dramatists in their chapter 3 and provide bibliographical details of each one's work. There are lists of general, critical, and historical studies; several sections on theatres, staging, acting, management, and the critics; a list of periodicals, which though it does not replace Stratman, and does not set out so to do, is useful; and a list of other bibliographies and reference works, as well as details of the hundred authors. What is particularly useful about this bibliography is that it provides annotations of editions of individual plays. Thus, not only do the compilers indicate the kind of edition, but also whether it includes cast lists, details of properties or staging, and even particular incidents associated with the productionÔÇöe.g. 762, Agnes de Vert; or, the wife's revenge by Buckstone (performed 1834) has an annotation explaining that the edition includes an 'Advertisement' which states that 'the play's successful run was interrupted by Mrs Yates's "interesting disposition", i.e., her pregnancy'. What a pity that did not occur when Buckstone's previous play was performed: Married lifc\ Some of the annotations are critical as well at informativeÔÇöe.g. 2631 is 'Much too short to encompass adequately the scope of the title', wherea- 2639 is, 'One of the better studies of provincial theatrical activity'. This will be a very useful bibliography and should do much to encourage the study of drama in this period. FRANCIS, GLORIA A., and ARTEM LOZYNSKY, comp., Whitman at auction 1899- Near Fine.
