Title

The Stage and Its Stars

Description

This book includes 112 full-plate photogravures and several hundred additional lithographs of Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century. The photogravure process is a late-nineteenth-century technique whereby paper reproductions are made from applying ink to an engraving on a metal plate. They are intended to resemble photographs such as that of William Terris as Romeo. As one could surmise, this process is painstaking and very expensive.
