Stuart Robson (1836-1903), born Henry Robson Stuart, was an American comedic stage actor known for his distinctive voice, often called "the Robson squeak." He appeared on stage for 40 years, collapsing on stage at his final performance only days before his death. For twenty years he formed a comedy team with William Henry Crane; they were especially popular as the two Dromios in Shakespeare's A Comedy of Errors. English-born American stage actress Fanny Davenport (1850-1898) made her debut at the age of 12 as the King of Spain in Faint Heart Never Won Fair Lady. In 1869, she joined the famed company of Augustin Daly, which traveled across the U.S. and toured England, Germany and France, presenting adaptations of foreign works and revivals of Shakespearean comedies. Leaving to form her own company, Davenport appeared in such plays as Sardous Fedora (1883) and Cleopatra (1890), making her final appearance on March 25, 1898, shortly before her death. Fanny was the daughter of American stage actor Edward Loomis Davenport (1816-1877) and English stage actress Fanny Vining. Toned. Left edge lightly frayed from binding. Otherwise, fine condition.
