Handwritten sentiment of the English actor, lauded as the greatest Hamlet of the 19th century
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Yours very truly,/J. Forbes-Robertson", 5¼x3. English actor Johnston Forbes-Robertson (1853-1936) was called the greatest Hamlet of the 19th century, and one of the greatest actors of all time, yet he disliked acting and considered himself unsuited to it. Originally playing second leads to Henry Irving, he came into his own in Shakespearean roles. George Bernard Shaw wrote the part of Caesar in Caesar and Cleopatra for him (with Robertson's wife, Gertrude Elliott, in the role of Cleopatra). Forbes-Robertson was the brother-in-law of one famed actress, Maxine Elliott, and the great uncle of another, Meriel Forbes, who married Sir Ralph Richardson. Fold in center. Toned. Irregularly cut on right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
