A scarce and handsomely-illustrated pamphlet on Edwin Booth's 23rd Street Theatre in New York City, published five years after Booth's younger brother assassinated President Lincoln. The work was "Reproduced from Appleton's Journal" and is illustrated with exterior views of the theatre, a steel- engraved portrait of Edwin Booth, and nine interior details of the various behind-the- scenes mechanisms for moving scenery, a view underneath the trap doors of the stage, the scene painter's studio, the property room, the arsenal, and more. It serves, therefore, as an interesting behind-the-scenes look at theatre productions and operations. OCLC reports just nine physical copies over two records. OCLC 7457272, 702647770.
