BYRON, Henry J. MAZEPPA! A Burlesque Extravaganza in One Act. £ 55.00

London. Thomas Hailes Lacy. (1864). pp. 39, (i). 12mo. Original printed wrapper stitched as issued. Lacy's Acting Edition. A very good copy. Henry James Byron was a second cousin of the poet. His grandfather, the Rev. Richard Byron, was brother to Foulweather Jack, grandfather of the 6th Lord Byron. Henry James was born 8th January 1835 in Manchester and sent to school in Essex and then to St Peterís Collegiate School in Eaton Square, London. He was interested in the Theatre from childhood, although his parents first considered the Navy and then articled him to Miles Marley, a surgeon. He later studied under Dr Bradley, his Grandfather, in Buxton but hated it so much that he decided to become an actor. By 1858 his career as a hack writer was well established and at his death he left more than 100 published and unpublished dramatic works. See Walker - The House of Byron.
