Subject: 	H. A. Kendall

In a used book shop I bought a small (about 3 x 5 inches) 
nineteenth-century (I think) announcement of a performance of Richard 
III, starring H. A. Kendall (Queen Elizabeth is played by Julia 
Kendall).  No location is given, only "Opera House, Monday, April 15." I 
believe it to be American because I see no British spellings. One side 
announces the play with its actors; the other side has a small engraving 
of Kendall and a copy of his signature. Is there a name for such tiny 
notices, and how were they used?  It's too large to be a cigarette card. 
  I have tried to track down Kendall on the web and elsewhere but to no 
avail.  He is not listed in Hartnoll's Oxford Companion to the Theatre. 
I'd appreciate any information or suggestions for further research paths.
