AUGUSTIN DALY. ALS: "Augustin Daly", 1p, 5x6¾. London, 1894 April 19. On letterhead of Daly's Theatre to "Dear Mr [illegible]". In full: "Mr [illegible] has charge of all the printing for the [illegible]. Very truly". American theatrical manager and dramatist Augustin Daly (1838-1899) is best known as the operator of Daly's Theatre on Broadway, where he presented noted productions of Shakespearean comedies. Daly, who was a drama critic for several New York City newspapers from 1859, had made his debut as a manager with his melodrama, Under the Gaslight, his first play that was not an adaptation of another work. Daly, who also adopted plays from French and German, opened his first theater in 1869, and he would reign as the "autocrat of the stage" for some thirty years in both New York and London. A strict disciplinarian who set high standards of production for his "company of stars", which included John Drew, Clara Morris and Ada Rehan, Daly was a biographer as well as a playwright. Lightly creased with fold, not at signature. Minor ink transference at blank area beneath two words. Fine condition.
