PARLIAMENT: BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS: THEATRE: IRISH UNIVERSITY PRESS: STAGE & THEATRE
3 volumes large folio. FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. The 1832 Select Committee report provides a comprehensive account of the British, and particularly the London, theatre in 1831-32. The recommendations of this committee formed the basis for two important Acts, the Dramatic Copyright Act of 1833 and the Theatres Act of 1843. The growth of the music-hall and other less lofty forms of amusement was a feature of nineteenth-century entertainment. A conflict between the theatre and the music-hall was inevitable, this conflict forms the background to the Select Committee report of 1866. The 1892 inquiry (although its terms of reference are similar to earlier ones) did not examine the state of drama as such. This report in the face of the increasing variety and number of places of entertainment confined itself to examining the licensing system, safety regulations and other like matters. Includes: Report from the Select Committee appointed to Inquire into the Laws affecting Dramatic Literature, 1831-2; ...for Licensing and Regulating Theatres and Places of Public Entertainment, 1866; ... for Laws Governing Theatres, 1892, &c. * The British Parliamentary Papers of the nineteenth century contain vital source material to students of history, commerce, economics, sociology and law. There are approximately 5,000 British Parliamentary Papers for the period 1800 to 1900 - a mountain of source material that, however, because of its traditional chronological arrangement, has been difficult to access. The Irish University Press programme of facsimile reprints of the papers overcame this basic problem by commissioning academic specialists to select the most important papers and group them on the principle of 32 subject sets in the folio size of the originals. This series was published c.1960-1972. All the volumes are strongly bound in half green morocco leather. They are designed to outlast generations of heavy use and wear. It has the great advantage over the original printings in that it is printed on a strong laid paper. Reproductions of original maps and other illustrations are included throughout the series. Each volume now offered has a library book label on the free front endpaper and a neat shelf mark on the spine - otherwise entirely unmarked and in excellent condition. (Book ref. 20100)   £110.00
