CHARLOTTE BEHRENS MANTELL
Signature on an album leaf, dated by her 1897, one year before she succumbed to a mysterious illness
Signature: "Charlotte Behrens Mantell/1897", 6¾x4 album leaf. Stage actress Charlotte Behrens (1866-1898) was already married when she met well-known actor Robert Mantell and began touring with his company. A self-avowed "anti-Victorian," she lived openly with Mantell and had a child with him, despite death threats to Mantell from her husband. In 1896, she and Mantell - both finally divorced - married and continued on tour. After a performance in Port Huron, Michigan, Charlotte took mysteriously ill and died after a prolonged illness. Mantell then married his new acting partner, who died of a similar unidentified illness, and Mantell married yet another actress in his company. Investigative reporter Linda Alexander believes there is more to this story and is researching a book on the subject. Left edge ragged from previous binding. Lightly toned and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
