The rise and fall of the well-made play by John Russell Taylor( Book )

First published in 1967, this title considers the idea of the 'well-made play' in the context of how and why it has been devalued and how far, in allowing it to be devalued, we have lost sight of certain important elements of the theatre. The focus of the book is largely on the development of British theatre and those who have been instrumental to it. This is an indispensable introduction for any student with an interest in the history and development of the British theatre
The second wave; British drama for the seventies by John Russell Taylor( Book )

19 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in English and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1970s the revolution that had swept the British theatre in the 1950s had already become accepted as the new establishment. Areas that had been previously regarded as remote ideals - including permanent repertory companies, a lively provincial theatre and an extensive spread of avant-garde and fringe theatrical activities - were now considered commonplace. In this title, first published in 1971, John Russell Taylor assesses the prospects of the British theatre at the start of the 1970s and indicates its points of weakness and its strengths. In this context are placed the key figures a

The art dealers by John Russell Taylor( Book )

11 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost as long as there has been art to sell and collectors to buy, there have been dealers to bring the two profitably together. It is, at least, a service, and one for which the dealer may properly expect to be paid. More than that, it is often a gamble. A gamble for everyone, from the artist (if he is still alive and hoping to make a living from the exercise of his art) to the final owner. Individual taste, fashion, the state of the market, a correct reading of the personalities involved, all enter into the management of the art market. - Introduction
