    William Henry Chippendale (1801-1888) was an English actor and theater manager who had an extensive career in the United States and Great Britain. This collection is comprised of 16 anthologies of working scripts for plays and operettas written by English playwrights, including William Bayle Bernard, John Baldwin Buckstone, Joseph Stirling Coyne, James Robinson Planché, and Edward Stirling. Chippendale used the materials during his career as an actor between 1834 and 1851, and likely while directing a dramatic company that toured the United States with Solomon Smith. Many of the scripts are heavily annotated with cuts, additions, and stage markings.
