Most widely held works by John Baldwin Buckstone
Jack Sheppard by William Harrison Ainsworth( Book )
32 editions published between 1839 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 316 libraries worldwide
In Buckstone's Jack Sheppard, a spectacular and popular adaptation of Ainsworth's much dramatized novel, the rascal hero was played by the comedienne Mary Keeley. Dion Boucicault's The Corsican Brothers starred Charles Kean as telepathic twins and featured the famous stage-effect of the Corsican-trap. Tom Taylor's Our American Cousin became a star vehicle by default when E.A. Sothern improvized the minor role of Lord Dundreary to such effect that his performance became the rage on both the British and the American stage. That President Lincoln was assassinated while watching the play adds an extra macabre dimension to its interest. Finally, Paul Potter's dramatization of the novel Trilby achieved cult status after Herbert Beerbohm Tree built up the sinister Svengali into a mythical force of artistic creativity and evil genius
