Wilson, A. E.  
Penny Plain, Two Pence Coloured: A History of the Juvenile Drama
 Picture
Publisher: The Macmillan Company, 0 New York.
Book. Book condition: Fair. No Jacket. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall No date; ca. 1930s. Foreword by Charles B. Cochran. "..Beyond Stevenson's 'A Penny Plain and Twopence Coloured' and occasional references to the virtues of toy theatres by bright young critics who find our contemporary stage a bore, my knowledge of the hstory of the Juvenile Drama is non-existent, or rather was until I read Mr. Wilson's interesting and informative study. This book was obviously wanted to fill a gap in the literature of the drama and now that Mr. Wilson has done it, one wonders why it was never done before. My own first-hand knowledge of the toy theatre is limited to the practical enjoyment of one, first, when I was a very little boy, and again, at about the age of sixteen, with my schoolfellow, Aubrey Beardsley. I must have thrown away a fortune on my hobby. All my pocket-money in the early 'eighties went on sets of plays, and my father and mother were generous in contributions to the cost because the toy theatre kept my out of mischief! But it was 'The Miller and His Men' which stopped my ardour when I was about nine. In working up the climax, with revolving mill, red fire, and so on, I felt the lack of four or more hands. Pushing on a character in a tin slide, lighting the red fire, manipulating a trap and working the wheel, while at the same time speaking the lines of the characters, made me lose my presence of mind. The character on the tin slide caught fire, the flames spread to the wing; I burnt my hand, and then the great conflagration! My theatre was reduced to ashes. I was always forbidden to use footlights by my mother, who in this showed an imagination well in advance of her time. A stage without footlights then seemed impossible to me, and indeed, has seemed so to English producers as a whole years after..After the great fire, I finished with the toy theatre for seven years until I found myself sharing a study at school with Aubrey Beardsley. We disregarded the published 'sheets;' and the plays especially adapted for the purpose, staging instead dramas concocted by ourselves, with characte3rs and scenery drawn and painted by Beardsley. With the theory and history of the subject we were not concerned. We were practical men of the theatre, or so we thought ourselves!..I do not remember the names of any publishers of my favourite sheets other than Burtenshaw, and this sticks in my mind only because I had a school friend of the same name. Two of my favourite plays were 'Sixteen-string Jack' and 'Jack Sheppard.' My father, who was a great admirer of George Cruikshank, once told me, I remember, that some of the figures were designed by the famous caricaturist. As a remote descendant of William Blake, I am excited to learn for the first time from this book that he designed some of my toys. Beardsley taught me to know Blake's work well, but I do not think he can have known this either. In the main, I agree with Mr. Wilson that the pleasure of the toy th
