More About this Item


Description: Maskelyne & Cooke (John Nevil Maskelyne and George Alfred Cooke). Pre-Egyptian Hall Playbill of Maskelyne and Cooke. Science and Mystery, Mirthful and Inexplicable Wonders. Cheltenham: Norman & Sons, 1867. Letterpress program printed in red, describing the entertainment in great detail and including lengthy extracted press reviews and testimonials from members of the nobility and academics at Oxford. Folio (14 _ x 9 _î). Unobtrusive old folds and chips in margin; plain strip of paper affixed on verso from scrapbook, not affecting printed area. Rare. Certainly one of the earliest extant pieces of printed ephemera on Maskelyne & Cooke, predating the duoÍs opening at Egyptian Hall by some five years and printed in the town of Cheltenham, where their partnership was forged.
