BARNABEE, Henry Clay
THEATRE] [BOSTON] Scrapbook of Henry Clay Barnabee, actor in the Bostonians (Boston Ideal Opera Company)
[Boston and elsewhere], 1910. Quarto. About 40 double-sided scrapbook leaves, nearly all used. Binding worn, with a brown cloth tape reinforcement at the spine. Internally intact and rather clean. Overall contents in very good or better condition. Scrapbook of Henry Clay Barnabee, one of the 19th century's great operatic comedians. The contents are mostly personal visiting cards with notes from the subjects, along with similar ephemera (telegrams, autograph letters, and the like). Just about every page is packed to the edge with material. Signed large cabinet photograph of Barnabee laid in. Barnabee was well-known in his time, particularly for playing the role of the Sheriff of Nottingham in the 1891 London production of Robin Hood (this role is mentioned in at least one place by Barnabee in his own hand within the scrapbook). A rich personal archive of Barnabee's, which no doubt will reveal to any scholar of his work the nature of his relationships to some other artists of his era included within. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Cleveland Book Company, IOBA [Lakewood, OH, U.S.A.]
