The New York Public Library has a microform of *Shakespeare's historical drama
King John produced at Her Majesty's Theatre by Herbert Beerbohm Tree on
the 20th of September, MDCCCXCIX.* [London]: British Mutoscope and
Biograph Co., 1899.
 
The Folger Library has a photogravure of Tree as K. John done by Charles
A. Buchel, and an ink and opaque drawing of K. John I.v. showing
McLeay as Hubert, Mr. Tree as K. John, Miss Bateman as Constance, and
Master Lefton as Arthur.  We also have a number of letters to and from
(24) Tree, though I'm not sure that any of these will deal with that
production.

The next issue of the *Shakespeare Bulletin* has information about this
production.  You should have this issue soon if you are a subscriber.  Also,
an essay appeared fairly recently in *Theatre Survey* by B. A. Kachur, with
excellent illustrations. *The Shakespeare on Film Newsletter*, which has
now merged with the *Shakespeare Bulletin*, carried an announcement of the
Kachur essay in vol. 16.2, p. 7.
 
To subscribe to the *Bulletin* send $15 for one year and $30 for two to Profs.
James LUSARDI and June SCHLUETER, at Lafayette College, Easton, PA 18042.  The
Bulletin, a performance journal, is issued quarterly and has about 50 pages per
issue--full of good things.
 
Good luck with your research.

There is a very interesting account of the 1899 production of _King
John_ in the book SHAKESPEARE AND SILENT FILM, as that particular
production was the basis of the world's first cinematographical
representation of Shakespeare. There are a few stills from the film
--and I believe one of the stage production, but the actual film
itself is apparently lost.
