The Pilot: A Nautical Burletta in Three Acts

£50.00

Product description

The Pilot: A Nautical Burletta in Three Acts is a c. 1823 book published by John Cumberland. It has been printed from the acting copy which includes a description of the costume, cast of the characters, entrances and exits, relative positions of the performers on stage and the whole of the stage business.

This particular copy is in very good condition considering its age. Its brown leather exterior has a unique marble design on its cover. The book’s edges are bumped and scuffed and the paper on its spine is rather worn and faded.

As for the interior, all pages are generally free of any writing, highlighting or markings. The previous owner’s book plate is in the inside cover as well as a list of plays written by him. The binding still remains tight despite its age. The page edges are browning with very light signs of foxing.

Performed at the Adelphi Theatre for many years, The Pilot was a very successful burletta. This early 19th century 1st edition will be an ideal book for all collectors and those interested in theatre from the 1800s. Highly recommended!
