Der Bibliothekar : Schwank in vier Akten by Gustav von Moser( Book )

83 editions published between 1879 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play was first published in 1878. The file contains materials related to rehearsal and performance, including a published copy (Lustspiele von G. von Moser, sechster Band; Berlin: B. Behr's Buchhandlung, E. Bock, 1880), which has been annotated as a prompt-book; and 5 handwritten role books, for the following parts: Edith, Marslands Tochter; Harry, Marslands Neffe; Macdonald; Eva Webster; and ein Commissionair. (The majority of the roles are not represented here; among those missing are: Marsland, Gutsbesitzer; Lothair, Macdonalds Neffe; Gisbson, Schneider; and Robert, Bibliothekar.) The published copy is labeled as the property of Theodor Bloch, who was active in German-language theater in Philadelphia from at least the early 1870s until the mid 1890s, first as an actor and later as a prompter and proprietor of a theater lending library. The covers of some of the role books bear the names of cast members who played the roles. (The names could not be definitely placed as relating to performances in Philadelphia.) See the index in the collection's register for details about 2 theater newspapers advertising performances of the play in Philadelphia in 1886 and 1892 (folders 704 and 709), and one playbill from a performance in 1883 (folder 680)

The play was first published in 1873. The file contains materials related to rehearsal and performance, including a published copy (Berlin: B. Behr's Buchhandlung, E. Bock, 1878; Moser's Lustspiele, erster Band), which has been annotated as a prompt-book; a handwritten scenario; a handwritten item (letter) that served as a prop; and 9 handwritten role books, for the following parts: Dr. Scheffler, Advokat; Bertha, seine Frau; Commerzienrath, Bolzau; Wilhelmine; Ludmilla; Dr. Steinkirch; Hartwig; Brimborius, Festordner; and Schnake, Vereinsdiener. (The character list in the published copy shows 2 additional roles: Franz, Diener bei Bolzau; and Diener bei Scheffler.) The published book also contains another play by Moser, Die Sünderin, Lustspiel in einem Akt. (That play bears no annotations, and the collection does not include any other materials related to it.) The published copy as well as several of the role books are marked (with a label or by hand) as the property of Theodor Bloch, who was active in German-language theater in Philadelphia, first as an actor and later as a prompter, from at least the early 1870s until the mid 1890s, and who also ran a theater lending library. Names of actors and actresses noted on the covers of the role books generally seem to reflect about three different casts in Philadelphia over time, possibly all of them dating from the early to mid 1890s. (Some of the names also correspond to a cast list noted in the published copy next to the list of characters; that cast dates from around 1894.) Some of the role books, as well as the scenario, could date from a somewhat earlier period. At least one actor's name (Niemann) would likely relate to a performance in the early to mid 1880s; and in some instances it is apparent that names from an earlier cast have been erased. The role book for Brimborius is signed and dated on the last page "17 Febr. '92 / F. W.," apparently by the same person who wrote it out, possibly Fritz Weilenbeck, who acted in German-language theater in Philadelphia from at least 1875 to 1896. The role book for Dr. Steinkirch, which bears the names of at least six different actors, is stamped with the name "Guido Ferrari" and an street address that could be in Philadelphia; it is also labeled by hand as the property of Bloch. A few jottings on the back cover of that item include several words written with Hebrew characters that appear to be in Yiddish. See also a theater newspaper in folder 704 advertising a performance of the play in Philadelphia in Oct. 1885 (no cast listing)

Reif-Reiflingen. Schwank in 5 Akten by Gustav von Moser( Book )

7 editions published between 1882 and 1909 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play was first published in 1882. The item is a published copy (Berlin: Eduard Bloch, 1882), which has been annotated as a prompt-book. The book is labeled on the front cover as the property of Theodor Bloch, who was active in German-language theater in Philadelphia from at least the early 1870s until the mid 1890s, first as an actor and later as a prompter, and who ran a theater lending library. The title is listed in Bloch's catalog for his library, dated 1886 (see box 34). Names of actors and actresses noted on the page with the list of characters are recognizable from the casts of other German-language plays in Philadelphia, and together suggest a cast that would have performed around the mid 1880s. See also a theater newspaper advertising a performance (with a different cast) in Dec. 1887 (folder 696)
