70/1885 [Games and toys. Theatres]. (Pollock's Toy Theatres). Collection of ±90 printed (autotype?) paper Pollock's Scenes, Characters, Tricks, Side Wings etc. for several diff. theatre plays, some handcol., each sheet ±17,5x22 cm., publ. London, B. Pollock/ J. Redington/ J.K. Green, 2nd half 19th(/ early 20th?) cent.

- Some minor marginal defects; two sheets w. a figure cut out; incl. a few duplicates.

= When Benjamin Pollock married Eliza Redington in 1877, he took over his shortly earlier deceased father-in-law John Redington's toy theatre shop at 73 Hoxton Street. Here he sold both the toy theatre sheets inherited from his father-in-law and from J.K. Green, on which he only changed the imprint. The theatre sheets consisted of particular collections for a specific play (e.g. 5 sheets of characters, 7 of scenes or backdrops and 3 for wings) as well as general scenes or wing-sheets "to suit any play". They could be bought for 'a penny plain and twopence coloured' and were to be pasted to cardboard. Pollock died in 1937, but the shop still exists, now in Covent Garden. This nice collection contains i.a. 2 COMPLETE SETS for the play Douglas (each 4 character plates, 5 scenes and 2 wing sheets, all uncoloured, and with the 16p. accomp. booklet (orig. wr., sm. 8vo)), all 5 character plates to Lord Darnley (all handcol.; 2x w. piece cut out) and its 16p. booklet (w. the address of Redington. Repaired in upper margin), odd sheets (incl. duplicates) to Whittington and his Cat (11x, 2x handcol.), The Corsican Brothers (7x), The Miller and its men (4x), Blackbeard the Pirate (4x), The Blind Boy (3x), Jack the Giant Killer 93x), Don Quixote (2x), Baron Munchausen (2x), The Children in the Wood (2x), The Red Rover (2x: a handcol. and an uncol. scene sheet no. 5), a "Pollock's New Drop Scene of the Britannia Theatre" (uncol.) and "(...) of the City of London Theatre" (handcol.), some "Rough Waters" and "Foot Pieces" and "Side Wings" "to suit all pieces(/ plays)", and 11 cut-out and mounted handcol. scenes/ side wing parts to The Woodman's Hut/ The Mistletoe Bough (incl. a scene w. a movable part and 4 side wings that suit any play).
