About this Item

201p. The frontispiece of Irving is by Whistler. He was the first actor to be knighted and he was a close friend of Bram Stoker (who based Dracula on some of his characteristics). He was the first actor to take control of sets, lighting, direction, casting as well as playing leading roles. Included in this volume is his lecture to Oxford on four great actors includes generous appreciations of Garrick, Edmund Kean, Burridge and Betterton though in retrospect he may only have Garrick to whom he can be compared. Light finger soiling on binding else a very nice copy. A scarce item since his signature usually is only found on letters that appear at auction. Bookseller Inventory # 016243
