Subject:        Salvini/Booth Hamlet Book

Three performances of Hamlet were given by Edwin Booth (as Hamlet) and
Tommaso Salvini (as the Ghost) in 1886.  These performances were on
April 30, 1886, at the Academy of Music in New York City; on May 7,
1886, at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia; and on May 14, 1886, at
the Boston Theatre in Boston.  I have a copy of the Boston Theatre
playbill, which notes: "Books of Hamlet as presented on this occasion
can be had from the Attendants."  I am unable to locate a copy of the
Hamlet book for these performances.  Does anyone know where a copy of
this book may be found?
