Berstl, Julius: The Sun''s Bright Child: The Imaginary Memoirs of Edmund Kean.

Berstl, Julius - The Sun's Bright Child: The imaginary memoirs of Edmund Kean. Hammond, Hammond & Co., 1st, 1946. It was not the author's intention to give an ordinary factual account of Edmund Kean's life. Instead, he felt impelled to write this story of an adventurous, uncommonly varied stage player's life in autobiographical form and, at the same time, to show the man Kean as a type of the 'Eternal Mime' who, in the course of a glorious career, learned to distinguish clearly the illusions of the boards and the reality of the world. ... (Wrapper flap). 8¾" x 5¾", 192pp plus 8 plates (printed on both sides), dark red cloth, hardback. Illustrated with monochrome portraits and drawings. Pages 73/74 & 75/76 narrow strip torn from lower corner, edge-foxing, good, solid copy complete with good (bit 'dusty', edge tears, loss to head of spine, wear in places) wrapper.
