A scrapbook of the theatre mostly in the environs of Boston in the period from September, 1901 to February 1906. The blank volume was published by Burkhardt in 1891. The owner, according to the dated signature on the front free flyleaf was Grace Edith Hatch, who recorded each theatrical visit in the period, by listing the play and principal artist, the theatrical venue, the date, her companions for the visit, etc. Pasted in , in each case, are the ticket stub (in most cases), photogravure illustrations of the star and/or illustrations of the action and the program, trimmed to fit the page. Each theatrical visit takes up approximately one leaf. Consequently this is a handsome record of the theatrical life of Boston with about 80 instances recorded. A detailed index is recorded alphabetically and holographically at the front. Among the many actors seen are Maude Adams, Ethel Barrymore, Mary Mannering, Frank Daniels, Lionel Barrymore, Lillian Russell, Anna Held, Leslie Carter, John Drew, Templar Saxe, Margaret Wycherly, William Gillette, Weber & Fields, et al.
