On offer is a super, original 1878 manuscript relic of San Francisco history being a comedy play staged in five acts handwritten by Frederick Henry Adams. [Tucked in is an official Library of Congress Copyright Office Washington declaring in February 1878 that Frederick Henry Adams holds copyright.] The play takes place at the original Palace Hotel in San Francisco in 1876 and is about collapse of the Comstock Lode and references many politicians of the day. The book is entirely handwritten, at least 100 pages there are apart from the play proper other handwritten notes; corrections to names in the cast, general observations etc. However we cannot determine of these were by Adams or perhaps a future producer, director or actor of the production. While the book proper is not in the best of shape being completely dis-bound for the most part the leather covers present but very worn and detached, we cannot help remind ourselves that this treasure of native San Francisco theater is a survivor of the terrible earthquake of 1906 and the massive destruction throughout the city. Overall Fair.
