Two vols, hf-lea, one 4to the other 8vo, title "Newspaper Cuttings on front of one, "Cuttings" on spine of the other, boards bumped and bent but mainly good condition, 112pp. and [160]pp, vast majority of items, some substantial and folded, laid down and with a neat statement of the newspaper source and the date. The Names "Milner & Storey" and "Dulcie Milner & George Storey" are written attractively at the beginning of the volumes. The record, charting the theatrical careers of the partnership in great detail, was obviously a labour of love (self-love?). They start with a provincial tour in England, Seacombe to Bolton to London (1908-1911), but soon launch into an exhaustive tour of South Africa (starting with a faded newspaper photo of "Milner & Storey [in costume] opening at the Orpheum" in Johannesburg. Their South African tour moved on to Kimberley and East London(1911-1912), then back to the British Provinces (inc. Scotland) and London (to 1914), back to South Africa (inc. Durban)(to 1915), then to Australia and New Zealand (1916-1922 - an extensive tour of usually major cities). End of Volume One. Volume Two: They continue the Antipodean tour till 1928, the end of the volume, and the final loose newspaper cutting tells the tale of a contract being terminated because of a voluntary liquidation, entailing "serious hardship" to the artists. An unusual and comprehensive record. N° de ref. de la librería 6893
