Chicago: The Story-Press Corporation, 1914. 4to (25 x 17.5 cm); illustrated wrappers with yap edges; 369-528 pp.; illus. A single issue of this publication initially published as "The Green Book Album" before becoming "The Green Book Magazine" in 1912. According to the "Oxford Companion to American Theatre," it "featured 'novelized' versions of current plays, as well as biographical, critical, and other essays, but rarely attempted first-night coverage. It also regularly offered pages of superb, rare photographs all too often neglected by modern theatrical historians. Publication ceased in 1921." Content for this issue includes George Bronson-Howard's "When the Piper of Hamelin Played Rag-Time," (Howard would commit suicide by gas in 1922); an essay by stage actress, Anna Held, on why should advised her own daughter to stay away from the stage, although she ultimately defied her; an article on screenwriter Avery Hopwood; a study of actor De Wolf Hopper; "Viva La Danse," on the latest dance craze and its puritan critics; much more. Some chipping and creasing to edges, small piece missing from the bottom edge near spine, a VG copy. Item #04089
