160 pages, 2 volumes, softcover, stapled. A biography of actor, playwright, songwriter HARRY W. EMMET (born Henry Denby), 1858-1896. Born in London, Harry was on stage in New Zealand and in Australia from 1876 to 1886, then (after an unhappy stopover in Honolulu) in San Francisco and in New York until his death in 1896. Includes a bibliography of plays he wrote, adapted and localised and his many songs. Harry's first wife was the young Melbourne actress MARION MELROSE, whose career (and tragic early death) are recorded, his second was the American actress IRENE LESLIE. The notes include much new biographical information on many 19th century theatricals, including LYDIA HOWARD, JENNY NYE, HARRY POWER, ARTHUR BRANSCOMBE, HARRY DE LORME, L.M. BAYLESS, MARY GLADSTANE, DUNCAN HARRISON, JAMES A REILLY, ED J. RUE, HENRIETTE BERLEUR, BAKER AND FARRON, Add RYMAN (with whom Harry played and co-wrote a parody of SHE; Harry also wrote an interesting article on minstrelsy and stump speeches published in the New York Herald 1889), musicians DAVID COPE and GEORGE RICHMOND FLEMING, acrobat LOLO DE GLORION (Glorian), female impersonator HARRY LECLAIR ("the Sarah Bernhardt of Vaudeville", for whom Harry Emmet wrote two plays), not to mention VICTORIA LOFTUS and her Troupe of British Blondes. ***New copies available.
