Bancroft, Mr. & Mrs. (Squire and Marie Wilton)

London: Richard Bentley, 1891. Red cloth with spine lettering gilt. "New Edition, Being The Eighth". 410 pps. plus illustrated ads and publisher's ads. Reminisciences of life on the stage by the famed late Victorian theatre actors who married and continued their careers together. The tales here related provide valuable and interseting glimpses into the world of The Lyceum, The Adelphi, The Haymarket and The Strand theatres; it becomes a joint narrative in the season of 1865-66 and continues through the couple's farewell season of 1884-85. A tight copy with some fade to the spine but with gilt lettering still clear. Very Good Hardcover (Item ID: F421)
