This beautiful, rare souvenir theatre programme presents Becket, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, on the 6th February 1893. The hard board cover has been illustrated in gold, black and red by J. Bernard Partridge. The cover has protected the internal pages superbly which contain 13 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 theatrical couple, Henry Irving and Ellen Terry.

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

36 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 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!
