This beautiful, rare souvenir theatre programme presents Shakespeare’s Henry the Eighth, on January 5th 1892. The bright red hard board cover has been illustrated in gold and black. The cover has protected the internal pages superbly which contain 15 stunning plates by J. Bernard Partridge, W. Telbin, J. Harker and the highly revered scene painter, Henry Hawes Craven Green (otherwise known as Hawes Craven). The plates portray scenes throughout the play. The eminent cast included the renowned couple, Henry Irving and Ellen Terry.

Also contains the cast list on page 5 and the synopsis of scenery on page 7.

40 pages not including cover; approx. H16.5cms x W24cms

Condition Code: 4-5: The board cover is intact and secure and has protected the internal pages superbly. The paste-down end paper and the free end paper inside the front of the book have become detached but the binding at spine is still intact with no damage. The book has hardly been opened and therefore was impossible to scan. So as not to damage the book we photographed the pages. A rare find in such good condition!
