Description

James Robinson Planché was a British dramatist, antiquary and officer of arms. Critics writing at the end of the 19th century praised Planché with sentiments such as “[Planché] raised theatrical extravaganza and burlesque to the dignity of a fine art, and wrote verses to be sung on the stage which could be read with pleasure in the study,” and “I am quite certain that such masters of lyrical writing as W. S. Gilbert … would confirm me in my opinion that the songs and lyrics in the extravaganzas of Planché were as faultless in tone, tact and taste as they were rhythmically perfect.”

This collection of Planché’s writing covers the period between 1819 and 1879.
