General Lisi of Books on Acting

This bibliography does not aim to be exhaustive ; its object rather
is to suggest the better known books in the field. In addi-
tion much material concerning acting will be found in theat-
rical memoirs, diaries, and reminiscences.

OVERBUBY, SIR THOMAS: The Character of a Perfect Actor, in


RICCOBONI, LUIGI: Dell' Arte Rappresentativa. London, 1726.
RJCCOBONI, LUIGI: Pensees sur la Declamation. Paris, 1788.

These contain an early exposition of the emotional principle of acting
elaborated into a theory of the art.

SATNTE-ALBINE, REMARD DE: Le Comedien. Paris, 174?.

His theory rests upon emotion. It is the basis of two or three subse-
quent works. (See below.)

RICCOBONI, FRANgois: UArt du Theatre. Paris, 1750.

Francois disagrees with his father, Luigi. An actor should not feel
the emotion he expresses. (See above.)

HILL [AARON? SIR JOHN? JOHN?]: The Actor. A treatise
on the art of playing. London, 1750.

The authorship of this adaptation of Sainte-Albine (see above) was at-
tributed to Aaron Hill. Lowe, p. 2, assigns it to "Sir John Hill." The
British Museum catalogue notes "by J. Hill, M. D., calling himself
Sir John Hill." Reprinted in 1766 with added anecdotes.

Thornton, Esq. London, 4th ed., 1764.

dramatic passions are defined, analyzed, and made easy of

acquirement. New York, n. d. i8553.

It is difficult to prepare anything approaching an adequate bib-
liography on Costume. Racinet's Le Costume Historique
contains, however, a detailed selection of books. There are
only a few statisfactory books on this subject among the hun-
dreds of titles. It is better to go direct to contemporary
painting, statuary, tapestries, etc., for costume data. For
American Indian costumes, see the publications of the Smith-
sonian. The following list is restricted to standard works.
