This exceptional 1889 theatre programme is illustrated in sepia tones. The cast list is found on first centre page with illustrated advertisements of the day throughout. This represents Mr. D’Oyly Carte’s 8th year at his theatre, the Savoy and, despite being paper, it is a joy that it has survived its 130+ years in such good condition.

This is the first production of Pirates of Penzance at the Savoy Theatre and only 1000 of this first pressing were printed. Printer’s date 19th April 1888. Thus incredibly rare, possibly unique.

 

8 pages including front and back cover; approx. H16½ cms x W12½ cms

 

 

 

 

Condition Code: 4: In very good condition for its 130 years, with smooth flat pages and no folds. It was made with no staples, so pages not attached to cover. Evidence of binding holes along the spine. There is a discreet 3cm split at lower spine of cover.
