1931 Masks Mimes and Miracles Studies in the Popular Theatre
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
This text provides a comprehensive history of the Mime, from its origins in Ancient Greece to its extensive use in Commedia dell' Arte. Charting the history and conventions of the art form, Nicoll touches on the scenery, props, costume, characters and conventions that surround the Mime figure. The copious illustrations within the text brilliantly complement Nicoll's study, making this a vital text for any theatre-lover, who will surely recognize the original tropes and influence of this theatrical medium within modern comedy today. This copy is lacking its original dustwrapper, as usual. Copiously illustrated throughout with two hundred and twenty five black and white illustrations.
In the publisher's original cloth binding with gilt title to front board and spine. Externally very smart, with slight bumping to extremities and head and tail of spine. Slight fading to spine. The odd mark to boards. Slight offsetting and light scattered spots to endpapers. Bookseller's label tipped to front pastedown. Internally firmly bound. Pages slightly age toned to extremities but bright and clean, with the odd light spot and handling mark to the occasional page.
Very Good Indeed
