    Maybe "An Actor's Adventure" as an alternative.

    August Blanche 1811-1868 was a Swedish editor of a liberal weekly called Freja. He wrote this in 1864. He became a politician later in life and fought as a member of parliament for liberal reforms: the death penalty, corporal punishment in schools and censorship in tha arts.

    I just love the marbling on that cover!
