Instructions for Smooth Reading

----------
2022-11-18 08:20 projectID5dd28ed5125fc_smooth_avail.zip uploaded by harrylame
A kind of Who's Who of the actors, musicians, agents, etc. involved in 19th and early 20th century Minstrelsy, with brief career descriptions and portrait photographs of several hundred (mainly American, and some English and European) groups and individuals. Collected and written by an insider: the son of the "Daddy" Rice from the title.

More than 500 illustrations, short text paragraphs, some advertisements and (probably not too surprising given the subject matter and the era) offensive language. More time to smooth read the book can be arranged, just send me a PM. Partial smooth reads are welcome as well.
