Title: Diccionario Teatral del Peru
Publisher: Lima: Lit. y Tip. De Badiola y Berrior, Editores, 1905
Publication Date: 1905
The first part of this book is a biographical dictionary of Peruvian theater personalities. The pages (of poor quality browned, but not brittle, paper) appear to have been trimmed at the top where page numbers appeared, so this section is not numbered. It is approximately 200 pages plus approximately 54 tipped in pages of portraits and other illustrations (scenes from plays, theaters, etc.) printed on glossy paper. This portion includes entries from Abadia, Manuel, to Zuderell, Carlos L.; dedicatoria (dedication); dos palabros (acknowledgements?); suplemento (supplement); essay on EL Teatro Nacional (the national theater); bibliografia y abreviaturas (bibliography and explanation of abbreviations); and errata notables (corrections). Also bound in is "Obras Dramaticas del Mismo Autor," one page; a 30-page dramatic sketch ("Luz, Boceto Dramatico, En un acto y cinco cuadros, en prosa, original de Manuel Moncloa y Cavarrubias," published in Lima in 1902 and imprinted with what may a bookseller's stamp; and another copy of the "Obras Dramaticas del Mismo Autor," printed on heavy orange stock and seemingly cut from a program or pamphlet. The work is bound in black half-leather and cloth over boards. On the spine, in gold stamping is, "M. Moncloa" and "Diccionario Teatral del Peru," with "Luz" at the bottom of the spine. A person by the name of Monclao (Don Manuel Moncloa y Ordonez) appears in the biographical listing. The only Luz in the dictionary is Luz del Mar, mentioning his debut performance in 1889. However, one assumes that the two Moncloas are the same, and that Luz was the owner of this volume, which he had bound. In Spanish. Very, very good condition with a little rubbing on the leather and some light spotting on the foredges. Bookseller Inventory # 680AG43
