2 Pearson, Hesketh The Last Actor-Managers
London White Lion Publishers 1974 0856173878 / 9780856173875 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A near Fine clean, tight and unmarked copy (Fine apart from a touch of light foxing to top edge) with dustjacket which is not price clipped. Illustrations from the Raymond Mander and Joe Mitchenson Theatre Collection. During the early years of the 20th century the English theatre enjoyed one of its richest periods, under a system which dominated the English stage since the end of the 17th century but was to disappear almost completely within a short time. This was the long tradition of the actor-managers - actors so able and popular as performers that they were able to dictate the policy of their theatres. The author gives us a gallery of portraits of the last ten actor-managers, all of whom he knew personally and saw most of them in their most famous roles.
