Title
The garden of paradise designs, 1914.
Summary
Consists of 15 costume designs, 6 set designs, and 6 plates depicting props for a production in nine scenes of THE GARDEN OF PARADISE, produced by Liebler & Co. at the Park Theatre in New York City. An adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's THE LITTLE MERMAID, the play opened on November 28, 1914, but closed after only seventeen performances. It was then bought by Florenz Ziegfeld for his Midnight Frolics. According to Best Plays of 1909-1919, "The later downfall of the house of Liebler & Co...was presaged by [this] elaborately handsome production."
