What Our Customers Say...

Description

Scarce, With Letter

In a brown paperback with black lettering. No. 1 only. Harold Newcomb Hillebrand was a professor of English literature who became a notable member of the English Department at the University of Illinois from 1914, and became head of the department from 1934 to 1944. His primary research interest was theatre and playwriting, and his study of the celebrated British Shakespearean stage actor Edmund Kean is often considered to be the best biography about the actor. Indeed, the text provided the first scholarly examination of the evidence on Kean's parentage, birth, and upbringing. This text similarly demonstrated Hillebrand's interest in actors of the Shakespearean stage, yet focuses rather on an array of 'Child Actor's rather than one sole figure like Kean.
