Theatre Lighting in the Age of Gas

£14.99

Product description

This is the first book to tell the story of the great technical and artistic achievements of stage lighting engineers during the nineteenth century when oil was superseded by gas in the theatre. The Society for Theatre Research believes that the book will take its place as the definitive history of a fascinating and little known aspect of theatre technology.

The author writes from both a scientific and theatrical background.

The book is a 1978 First Edition and the book itself and cover are in very good condition, although the outer edges of the pages are a little grubby and the dust cover is faded by the sun at the spine and top.
