Editorial Reviews


“This is scholarship of an impressively high order. Graves seems to have exhausted all available original historical data and fruitful modern speculation on this subject; and his arguments from these sources are very persuasive. Equally persuasive are his original and in­genious measurements of theatrical venues by date/time/light-angle/distance which, strangely, no one else has thought to try.”—Philip H. Highfill Jr., author (with Kalman A. Burnim) of John Bell, Patron of British The­atrical Portraiture: A Catalog of the Theatrical Portraits in His Editions of Bell’s Shakespeare and Bell’s British Theatre
