About this Item

Most entries are from 1897 or 1898, with only one at the much later date of 1925. John Hare (1844-1921) was a prominent English actor manager who ran the Garrick Theatre in London for a number of years. He was closely associated with Pinero, both producing some of his works as well as acting in them (not the same works). His fame was as great in America as in England. Kathryn Kidder (1868-1939) was a successful American stage actress. Howard Gould was the son of financier Jay Gould. Maurice Barrymore (1849-1905) was the patriarch of the legendary theatrical family. Father of Lionel, Ethel and John, he was a top leading man of his day. Johanna Gadski Tauscher (1872-1932) was a German soprano (and eventually naturalized American) and a star at the Metropolitan Opera best known for Wagnerian roles. Julia Marlowe (1865-1950) was an English born American actress celebrated for her portrayal of Shakespearean heroines. Vladimir de Pachmann (1848-1933) was a Russian born piano virtuoso best known for his interpretations of Chopin. Eugene Cowles was a composer who wrote for the voice. Carl Zerrahn (1826-1909) was a German born, American flautist and conductor. Anna Held (1872-1918) was Florenz Ziegfeld's first celebrated stage discovery and his first wife, portrayed in the movie "The Great Ziegfeld" by Luise Rainer, who won her first Oscar for the role. Chauncey Olcott (1858-1932) was an American actor, singer and songwriter who composed the song "My Wild Irish Rose" and the words to the song, "When Irish Eyes are Smiling". Finally, Anthony Hope (1863-1933) was the English novelist and playwright who wrote "The Prisoner of Zenda". Probably some, if not all, of the author autographs are of once prominent performers, or the signatures are not sufficiently legible to make out. Still, quite a collection of well-known people in one smallish album. Bookseller Inventory # 002750

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
