Book Description McClure, Phillips & Co. 1903 (c.1901), New York, 1903. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Illustrated by (cover painting) McLellan (illustrator). Later Printing. (pictorial boards; no dust jacket) [heavily worn along spine and edges, bumped a bit at all corners, rear joint partially split (webbing visible) but binding still intact; contemporary Christmas gift inscription in pencil on ffep]. (B&W photographs) Illustrated with photographs of various stage tableaux from the production, and a couple of medium close-up shots of Sothern himself. Sothern, a long-established matinee idol of the American stage, had (per Wikipedia) long "dreamed of mounting a spectacular and precise production of Hamlet. He finally opened the play in New York in 1900, but during the first week, he was stabbed in the foot by Laertes' sword and was stricken with blood poisoning, closing the production. After he recovered, he revived the piece on tour, but the sets and cosumes were destroyed by a fire in Cincinnati, Ohio." (The "Dramatis Personae" printed in this volume would appear to document the cast of the 1902 revival rather than the ill-fated 1900 staging, as Laertes (he of the wayward sword) was played by Sydney C. Mather, who had taken over from the clumsy Vincent Sternroyd. (Ophelia, in this production, was portrayed by Cecelia Loftus, and the courtier Osric by a young Cecil B. de Mille.) Mather continued in the role in support of Sothern in subsequent revivals of the play, and in 1922-23 he appeared as Laertes yet again in the John Barrymore production -- although by then he was about ten years old than the guy playing his father, Polonius.)
