ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, May 6, 1883

* Booth's Theatre closes
* Romeo and Juliet is last performance
* Actress Helena Modjeska

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The back page has an article headed: "THE NEW YORK STAGE" "Booth's Theater and the Actors Who Played There" "A Financial Failure..."
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 20 pages, very nice condition.
