About the Digital Collection

The Horace Howard Furness Memorial Library is dedicated to the study of Shakespeare and his contemporaries and, more generally, to the English Renaissance and the history of Shakespearean theatrical presentations. The Furness Library contains books, manuscripts, images, and artifacts.
The Furness Image Collection comprises more than 2,000 prints and photographs. The majority date from the nineteenth century, but the Collection also holds earlier and later images. These images illustrate and interpret Shakespeare's plays and also document theatrical performers and performances of works by Shakespeare and other dramatists.
Additional theatrical images, consisting of a collection of American theatrical posters from the 1890s and images from the collection of the Charlotte Cushman Club, are included here.
