I believe Booth is on Frank Packard's "Styles in Shakespearean Acting
from 1890 to 1950."  I have a copy on reel-to-reel tape.  If I remember
correctly, the selection (*Othello*, I believe) is very short and fairly
hard to understand.
 
I haven't hooked up my reel-to-reel machine for quite a while and am not
sure it is working.  I may try to get it running and check out the tape if
I can find time.
