A Thousand Years Ago, A Romance of the Orient. Garden City, N.Y. Doubleday, Page & Co., 1914.

First Edition. Illustrated with still photographs from the theatrical production. Volume Two of the Drama League Series of Plays published by Doubleday for the Drama League of America to promote the theatrical arts in America. By providing plays in print, the introduction argues American playgoers will be better able to grasp more intelligently the basis of success or failure of a play, whether it be due to the author, actors, producer or scenic artists. The introduction to the series describes the discrepancy in understanding plays between American and European theatre-goers the later of whom have printed plays made more readily available to them. Comedy play based on a tale of Italian Comedians from the Arabian Nights and originally produced in Boston at the Shubert Theatre starring Rita Jolivet, Frederick Warde and Fania Marinoff. Near Fine in Very Good plus dustjacket, few short closed tears, mild darkening to white panels. .
