About this Item

Letters and images, all relating to theater or music in the 19th century. It includes: 23 autograph letters signed from George Smart (1776-1867, English musician), Richard Flexmore (1824-1860, English clown), Frank Burty Haviland (1886-1971, French, Cubist painter), Henry James Montague (stage name of Henry Mann, 1844-1878, American actor born in England), Arthur Roberts (1852-1933, English comedian, music hall performer), Charles Lickford Water (1846-1909, English actor), Harry Paulton (a playwright, 2 letters, one on "Savage Club" stationery), Michael William Balfe (1808-1870, Irish composer, neatly trimmed signature only), Sims Reed (10 Pelham Crescent stationery), Alfred Morgan, and others. Some signatures are rather difficult to read, but the Royal Theater stationery, Music Progress London stationery, and Royal College of Music stationery offer some solace. The Adelphi is amongst the theaters mentioned. All in excellent condition, a little wrinkling or flattened creases from folding, some very light dust-soiling. SOLD WITH 16 engraved portraits (extracted from publications), and 2 cabinet cards (both of William Terriss). Engravings include: Robert "Romeo" Coates (1772-1848, a famously bad actor), Horace Smith (1779-1849, an English poet, remembered for competing against Percy Bysshe Shelley in a sonnet contest), Richard Farley of the Theatre Royal Garden, George Anne Bellamy (1727-1788, an Irish actress), and others. Again, in excellent condition, just a little light chipping along the edges, and some faint foxing. Bookseller Inventory # D7513
