Doran’s famous stage history first appeared in 1860, this edition would have been issued shrewdly to coincide with Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897.

Octavo (196 122 mm). Contemporary dark green half morocco, decorative gilt spine, green cloth sides, marbled edges and endpapers. Portrait frontispiece of Doran, profusely illustrated, title page printed in red and black. A handsomely bound copy.
