Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Frederick Lonsdale had his first play produced in London in 1908 and his last in 1950, and, between these two, he wrote twenty-four plays or musical plays which were produced in London or New York. The years of his greatest success, however, were the 1920’s and early 30’s. This was the period, too, to which he seemed to have belonged. At no other time could the world have won for him so much the aspect of his own home ground; at no other time could it have been so receptive to his talents or so enchanted by his person.”
