PREFACE. 

Among the benefactors of the Boston Public Library, 
Allen A. Brown holds a unique place. Many have enriched 
the Library by gifts of money or books ; he gave both money 
and books, but he gave more — through more than twenty years, 
from the date of his first gift until a few weeks before his death, 
he gave himself to the Library without stint, spending time, 
thought, strength, and money to perfect and complete the col- 
lections which he had bestowed on the people of Boston. 

Born in Boston, July 26, 1835, Mr. Brown was typical of 
the best traditions of his native city. In his Harvard days he 
developed an intimate devotion to music and the stage, which 
became a central interest in his life. He early began the ac- 
cumulation of books in his favorite fields, and in fifty years of 
collecting he formed libraries of music and the drama which 
were finely rounded and in many features unique. On October 
13, 1894, he presented to the Public Library his great collection 
of music and musical literature, which was housed in a special 
room, known as the Allen A. Brown Music Library, on the 
upper floor of the new building in Copley Square ; his books on 
the history of the stage remained in his home until December, 
1909, when they also were given to the Library, and assigned to 
a location among the treasures of the Barton-Ticknor Room. 
Mr. Brown continued to live with his books, devoting many 
hours each week to the arrangement of material, to the enrich- 
ment of the volumes with illustrative matter of all sorts, and to 
the enlargement of the collection ; before his death he had more 
than doubled the original Music Library, which grew under 
his hands from 5,500 volumes in 1894 to more than 11,000 in 1916. 
He died October 2, 1916, deeply mourned by the Library staff 
and by the music-lovers of Boston ; his will contained provision 
for maintaining the steady growth of his collections. 

It was Mr. Brown's wish that his two gifts to the Library 
should be adequately catalogued, and the catalogues published. 
The catalogue of the Brown Music Collection was issued by the 
Library during the years 1908-16, in four volumes, the contents 
of which were limited to material actually belonging to the 
Collection. The present catalogue of the Brown Dramatic Col- 
lection includes with it all the other books in the Library 
concerning the history of the stage. 

The Brown Dramatic Collection consists of about 3500 vol- 
umes relating to the drama and the stage, with special emphasis 

[vii] 



/ 



on the history of the theatre. It includes biographies of actors, 
criticisms of plays, a large mass of American and foreign play- 
bills, including those of the earliest Boston theatres, files of 
rare dramatic periodicals, autograph letters of actors, photo- 
• / graphic and other portraits, and a great collection of newspaper 
^ / and magazine clippings on theatrical aff^s, obituaries of actors, 
/ etc., arranged in scrap-books, and fully indexed. 

The body of the present catalogue includes the titles of 
all the books in the Library which deal with the history of the 
stage. This is followed by two shorter lists, of which the first 
contains that portion of the Brown Dramatic Collection relating 
to the drama rather than to the stage; the second is a supple- 
ment containing all material added to the collection during 
the printing of the catalogue. 

The main catalogue — books on the history of the stage — 
is arranged in dictionary form, containing authors, titles, and 
subjects in a single alphabet, with sub-alphabets under the 
various subject headings. Full entries have been made under 
the name of the author ; these include the place of publication, 
the publisher, the date, and the number of pages. Under cross 
references the titles have frequently been shortened, and only 
the place and date of publication have been retained. In the 
supplements at the end of the volume, the books are entered 
under authors only, in alphabetical order. 

Theatres are entered under the names of the places in 
which they are situated, as London. Covent Garden. 

The following rule has been adopted in the treatment of 
shelf-numbers : If the Library possesses two copies of a book, 
one in the Brown Collection, and the other for circulation, the 
shelf-numbers of both copies follow the title wherever it ap- 
pears in the catalogue. In the main entry any additional copies 
are listed in a note immediately below the title, but in subject 
or title entries, these copies are indicated by "etc.", following 
the shelf-number. The letter T, prefixed to the shelf-number, 
is the distinguishing mark of the Brown Dramatic Collection, 
and indicates that the book belongs to that collection. An 
asterisk before a number indicates that the book is not for un- 
restricted circulation ; two asterisks show that the book is in 
a special collection, and may not be taken from the Library 
under any circumstances. The latter restriction applies to all 
of Mr. Brown's gifts to the Library, as it was his intention that 
they should form permanent reference collections. 

It should be added that the Library is rich in material 
on the drama and its history, which is only slightly represented 
in the present catalogue ; this material, including the important 
Barton collection of Shakespeareana and other Elizabethan 
literature, is fully indexed in the card catalogue of the Library. 

April I, 1919.
