Autograph Quotations signed: "'Who am I?/Why Leah'/Yours very truly/Kate Crowe/Apl 14th 1883", "'If you in the old country took as much/as much trouble over marriage, as we do over/a tomato salad, I guess there'd be/a more satisfactory mixing all around.'/The Colonel./Act II/Charles Collette/Aug. 29th 1883", 7x9. KATE JOSEPHINE BATEMAN (1842-1917), the daughter of acting parents, was on stage from early childhood. In 1860, she earned plaudits in her mother Sidney Frances Beckman's adaptation of Longfellow's Evangeline. She was soon playing lead romantic roles, including Shakespeare's Juliet. Her most widely popular performance was her title role in Leah the Forsaken (1863), which she created in New York and then took to London. In England she met and married George Crowe in 1866, appearing only intermittently on the stage until her major comeback in Henry James' The American (1891). In 1892 she founded an acting school in London. Her last stage appearance was in Euripides' Medea (1907). English stage actor CHARLES COLLETTE (1842-1924) specialized in playing military men, his most famous role being the title role in F. C. Burnand's The Colonel. Collette also wrote comedies, and composed popular patter songs for them. Particularly popular was "What an Afternoon!", which he first sang himself his play with the unlikely title Cryptoconchoidsyphonostromata (1875). He was the brother in law of the famed theatrical couple Squire and Effie Bancroft, and he appeared in many Bancroft productions. Lightly frayed at left edge. Lightly toned. Lightly creased. Slight foxing. Otherwise, fine condition.
