About this Item

Born with the incredible name Albert Onesime Britannicus Gwathveoyd Louis Chevalier, this English actor and comedian was a master of music hall entertainment, and toured England and American with a music hall-style revue to great success -- especially his ever-popular sketch "My Old Dutch." AQS, 1p, 5½" X 7½", Philadelphia, PA, 1906 November 13. Good plus. Faintly age toned; tipped down to heavy green album leaf of same size; small triangular chip at upper left corner. On letterhead of Boston's "Parker House," Chevalier boldly pens in black ink: "'The dream ain't forgot, tho' the / dreamin' is done.' / 'The Workhouse Man' / (Musical monologue.) / Albert Chevalier / Philadelphia. Nov. 13th / 06. / Guilbert-Chevalier Recital." Chevalier and French cabaret singer Yvette Guilbert premiered a new variety show at New York's Carnegie Hall on October 13th, 1906 -- exactly one month before this little excerpt was penned. (Opined the "New York Times" reviewer, "Less familiar than most of the other characters presented by Mr. Chevalier. was his 'Workhouse Man,' a sketch in the vein of that little masterpiece of his, 'My Old Dutch'. It is an exquisite bit of character this, imbued with a delicate and appealing sympathy.") A lovely little period piece. Bookseller Inventory # 31377
