George Frederick Cooke was a member of that select company of legendary actors -- Garrick, Kemble, Henderson, Kean -- who dominated the English stage during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was the first important actor to cross the Atlantic and to play the theatres of the new United States. Don B. Wilmeth's extensive research in Cooke's journal and in many other contemporary sources provides us with a new appreciation of the actor's importance.

?A well-documented book, to be valued almost as much for its picture of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century theater worlds as for rescuing Cooke from obscurity.?-History
