Nineteenth Century American Drama, 1977 Don Hixon and Don Hennessee Finding Guide

Regular price $4.00

Nineteenth Century American Drama A Finding Guide, 1977 First Edition by Don Hixon and Don Hennessee is essentially a Guide to the Readex Corporation's Microprint Collection of American Plays from 1831 to 1900.

The editors of the Readex collection attempted to include every play written during the 19th century regardless of merit for stage or reading.  It is a valuable repository and with this Guide more accessible.

*Appendix II Ethnic/Racial in this book has a particular fascination for our contemporary society of politically correct individuals. In some 26 pages it lists the ethnicity of members in the casts of these plays--Americans, Arabians, Blacks, Brazilians, Cambodians, Chinese and on and on to Swedes, Swiss and Turks. VERY INTERESTING!

This book is in very good condition--no marks, no tears, a dozen pages turned perhaps 1/8" inch at one corner.
The book measures 5 1/2 inches by 8 3/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches and has 579 pages.
