Volumes 3 and 4 of this monumen­tal paintings comprise complete entries for all such illustrious names as these of the Cibbers—Colley, Theophilus, and Susanna Maria—Kitty Clive, and Charlotte Charke, George Colman, the Elder, and the more youthful, William Davenant, and De Loutherboug. yet right here are also complete entries for dozens of vital secondary figures and of adlescent ones whose tales have by no means been informed, in addition to a census (and not less than a number of recoverable evidence) for even the main inconsiderable performers and servants of the theatres.

 

As within the prior volumes during this dis­tinguished sequence, the accompanying illus­trations contain at the very least one photograph of every topic for whom a portrait exists.

Example text

The elder Cabanel, who was most probably Rudolphe's father, may have toiled obscurely at Astley's and elsewhere both before and after that date, as an actor and possibly as a machinist. He surfaced in the records only once more, when in 1804 the "Messrs. Cabanell and Son" produced for Astley a fireworks display on the Thames in honor of the King's birthday. Very likely Cabanel, Senior, was the husband of the dancer Madame Victoire Cabanel and the father not only of Rudolphe but of Miss Eliza and Miss Harriot Cabanel (later Mrs Helme), also dancers; and if so he was also father of the Fredericka mentioned by Rudolphe in his will.

In 1807, at the age of 41, Callcott's excessive exertions brought him to nervous collapse, and he was confined in an asylum for some five years. His professional colleagues gave a concert for his benefit in 1809 which filled the large King's Theatre with well-wishers. Callcott recovered sufficiently in 1812 to return to public life, but on a strictly reduced schedule. He gave up necessarily the laborious design for his dictionary of music, but he did resume some of his teaching. His mind failed him again in 1816 (he sent thanks to the Royal Society of Music for a benefaction on 4 February 1816) and once more he was compelled to go into an asylum, near Bristol, where he died on 15 May 1821, at the age of 55.
