Jerome, Jerome K.: Stage-Land (Illustrated), v2. 23 May 2012
By the author of "Three Men in a Boat," "Three Men on the Bummel," "The Diary of a Pilgrimage," "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow," etc.
A short, heavily-illustrated book, this collection of fourteen brief sketches takes a humorous satirical look at the inhabitants of “Stage-Land,” that mythical country of The Theatre that lies just around the corner from Reality. You will meet the Stage Hero, the Stage Villain, the Stage Lawyer, the Stage Child, and many others. The universe behaves much differently in Stage-land than real life, and so do its citizens. Sometimes, you might wish that real-life folks behaved this way, and sometimes — not. Although it was written in 1889, you are likely to find tid-bits that still echo today in plays, movies, and (especially) television.
Fifty-five illustrations, plus small illustrated chapter lead-ins. (I omitted the chapter tail decorations -- inconsistent styles made too much clutter.)
"No-text-wrap" version replaces the lead-ins with large caps.
Have fun. Vive Jerome!
EDIT-- Uploaded v 2, with format tweaks.
