About this Item

32 pp.+ ad for one of BoucicaultÕs productions on rear cover. 3 7/8Ó W x 4 3/4Ó H. Dion[ysius] Boucicault [or, Boursiquot] (1822Ð1890)was an Irish born actor, producer and writer in mid-nineteenth century London and America, especially known for his dramatizations and productions of Charles DickensÕs works. He had been raised by Dionysius Lardner (1793Ð1859), the noted English scientist (University College, London) and popularizer of science. Lardner was rumored to have been his father, but this is denied by Kenney, a longtime friend and observer of Boucicault. Boucicault developed the star system in the theatre, introducing Henry Irving and Joseph Jefferson. He also changed the finances of the theatre, with the result that the writer/producer shared in the profits of successful dramatic productions. Moreover, he authored about 150 plays. Very Scarce. Very Good. Bolton, Dickens Dramatized. Illustrated tan printed paper wraps. Bookseller Inventory # 10733
