Excellent classic volume on vent from one of England's greatest vents of the last century, Arthur Prince.
This is the revised second edition. I don't know the exact year this was published, but Will Goldston (the publisher) was advertising the first editions into the late 1920's, so this edition is likely early- to mid-1930's.
Prince really went to town with this book. He not only tips all of his work on vent technique, but he covers polyphony, selecting a figure, the smoking and drinking bits, personality of the figure, entire routines, instructions for operating figures, etc. Really fascinating stuff from a giant in the ventriloquial field.
This SCARCE title is in Fine condition with the following caveat: The entire outer cover has been "sealed" with a clear library tape (thus the bargain price!). The frontispiece
portrait with tissue overlay of Prince is present and perfect. Has minor foxing and previous owner's stamp in back cover...otherwise a really fine copy.
104pp, 5" x 7" hardcover.
