Dion Boucicault, 1969 Robert Hogan
Dion Boucicault, 1969 by Robert Hogan, describes the career of one of the few top dramatists of the 19th century. He has been claimed by Ireland, England and America, but he spent most of his productive years in America- even if he did run back to England to avoid our Civil War. In any event, he led an exciting life that would give him great headlines today.
Any book on Boucicault should be exciting, and this one surely is, and it is hard to find and, for those who enjoy history, theatre memorabilia and biography, highly collectible as well.
The blue hardcover book is in good vintage condition, with a few marks, and some shelf wear. It measures 5 1/2 inches by 8 11/4 inches by 3/4 inch and has 146 pages. The green and brown dust jacket, illustrated with an American eagle on the front and a sepia tone portrait of Boucicault on the back, also shows age-related wear.
