About this Item

One of a limited number of copies printed for the editor. The regular edition was limited to 488 copies. Gilt lettering on spine. Some wear to leather corners. Frontispiece of John Howard Payne and photograph of the John Howard Payne Memorial Gateway, Union College, Schenectady, N. Y. Uncut page edges. Facsimile of 1841 letter from John Howard Payne, in which he wrote the words to "Home, Sweet Home", precedes Introduction. From the Introduction: "The perennial fame of John Howard Payne is primarily based upon his authorship of the words of that immortal song, 'Home, Sweet Home'." "Payne's name is prominently associated with the early American drama. He was the first native American who as an actor or dramatist ever attracted attention in Europe, and whose plays were adopted as stock pieces at their theaters. Of the sixty-three plays written by him, four were among the greatest successes of their day". Bookseller Inventory # 4556
