In "Among the great masters of the drama; scenes in the lives of famous actors; thirty-two reproductions of famous pictures with text", Walter Rowlands introduces us to the most famous playwrights and actors that might be seen on the London stages in the 19th century. Many of the playwrights mentioned are very famous until today, like Shakespeare and Molière, some are today less well-known. Especially interesting are the short biographies of the stars of the stage, which may in some cases remind you of contemporary actors. - Summary by Carolin
