Toledo, Ohio. Rad-Mar Press. No date. Ca. 1942.
Spiral-bound rectangular book, 13 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches. 76 pp. Illustrations of 38 theaters, from the Greeks to 1940s America, with a peek into the future on the last two pages. Toning in free edge of title page, evidently leeching from the cover on one side and from the first illustrated page on the other. Front cover bumped and chipped and rear cover time-toned. Illustrations generally in very good condition. The book comprises a visual history of theatre, with early European theaters pictured and, mid-eighteenth century, a shift in focus to chiefly American theaters. Emphasis turns to motion picture theaters in the last few pages. The book features attractive and detailed drawings, mingling interior views with facades; evidently a labor of love. Contents in very good condition. Item #53288
