TREE, Herbert Beerbohm, proprietor and manager. PROGRAM: HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE: "THE DARLING OF THE GODS." 4to., folded broadside size sheet (4 panels) printed in brown ink. No date, circa 1904. The play, a five act drama by David Belasco and John Luther Long, was first performed in New York in 1902 at the Belasco Theatre. Tree is not playing the role of Zakkuri as he did in his London premier in 1903, so this is a later program. The scenery is credited to W. T. Hemsley. Edges with small closed tears and nicks, front panel toned and foxed, light foxing to rear panel and interior. Advertisements on the rear panel, some with illustrations, include several hotels, the "G. B" Diabetes Whisky "for Diabetes, Kidney Complaints, Rheumatism and Gout", The "Angelus" Piano-Player, Kyriazi Freres Egyptian Cigarettes, and Douglas Sladen's book "Queer Things About Japan." Good condition overall.
