About this Item

6 pp. 4" x 5 1/4 A handsome small theatrical program for a series of presentations of scenes and characters from Dickens's novels and works by a very noted impersonator of Dickens at his readings and original dramatizations from Dickens's works. The program cover, in red and black, is an illustration of Speaight, with the shape of the program defined by the shape of the portrait. The programs were presented on Saturday evenings throughout the month of February at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, in the Music Hall. Each page quotes a publicity blurb from a news publication, illustrates the program with an illustration from Dickens's works and lists the pieces presented. They were "Pickwick" on Feb. 6, "Copperfield" on Feb. 13, "Nicholas Nickleby" on Feb. 20 and The Pickwickians atBath and Other Selections" on Feb. 27. Those dates fall on Saturday in 1915, 1926 and 1932 (within the active career of Speaight). Other examples of Speaight's programs are in the Redpath Chatauqua Collection at the University of Iowa Libraries and at Brown University, where there is a broadside announcing Speaight's appearance at the Boston City Club under the sponsorship of the Boston Branch of the Dickens Fellowship in February, 1928. Speight also published his readings (Podeschi C19), a memoir of "My Dickens Friends" (Podeschi H424) and a volume of Poems (Putnam, 1925, Brown University Library). Small rust stain over staple on inner page. One leaf loose. Else, Very Good. Catalogues of University of Iowa Libraries and Brown University Library on Internet. Illustrated card covers. Stapled stiff paper pages. Bookseller Inventory # 10377
