About this Item

St. Louis, 1880. 8vo, publisher's brown cloth, 733 pp. Very good minus with hinges reinforced with cloth tape, some normal shelfwear and a bookplate on front pastedown. Remains sound and attractive. "Ludlow was a pioneer theatrical manager who brought theater and other amusements to a frontier fraught with assorted dangers. He, and later he and (Solomon) Smith together, presented a wide assortment of entertainments to the West and the South, including many of Shakespeare's works. They brought stars from the East and encouraged a reverse migration of popular players from the West and the South to New York City and other eastern cities. Such luminaries as Junius B. Booth, Charles and Ellen Kean, James Murdoch, J. W. Wallack, Jr., the Bateman children (see Kate Josephine Bateman), Charles Burke, Dan Marble, John "Irish" Collins, "Jim Crow" Rice (Thomas Dartmouth Rice), Anna Cora Mowatt, James H. Hackett, George H. "Yankee" Hill, and George Holland graced the stages of Ludlow's and Smith's theaters, which were known as no-nonsense operations that emphasized scrupulous adherence to respectability and dignity." - ANB. An important American theater memoir. Howes L-556. Bookseller Inventory # 15557
