Descripción

3pp., 16mo. Bifolium. Fair, on aged paper with fold lines. The front page carries the printer's slug, and gives the price of $6 for 'Course Tickets', 'For sale at the houses where the readings are to be given, on and after FEBRUARY 19th.' The middle two pages give the addresses, with owner's names, of the houses at which the six readings are to take place. Twenty-two pieces are to be read, ranging from works by Dickens, Tennyson, and 'Shakspere', to 'The Sewing School for Scandal' and 'A Cure for Dudes' by Wheelwright, 'The Sleeping Car' by Howells, 'A Dialogue' by 'Turguenieff' and 'Ulf in Ireland' by Charles de Kay. According to the description of a letter by Riddle in the Mary Wright Sewall Papers in the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library, he 'debuted in Boston in 1875 playing Romeo, and became attached to several stock companies in Boston, Philadelphia, and Montreal. From 1878 to 1881 he was an instructor of elocution at Harvard. He gave readings of literature in cities across the U.S. Among his most successful were Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream with Mendelssohn's music, Byron's Manfred with Schumann's music, and Oedipus Tyrannus with the music of John K. Paine.' No copy listed on WorldCat or COPAC. N° de ref. de la librería 11353
