From the thousands of playscripts submitted to the U.S. Copyright Office at Library of Congress during 1870-1920, and now housed in the Rare Book and Special Collections Division, 257 have been selected. These unpublished manuscripts include vaudeville comedy sketches, monologues, musical revue, spectacles, and other genres.
The mission of the Library of Congress is to make its
resources available and useful to Congress and the American people and to sustain
and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity for future
generations. The goal of the Library's National Digital Library Program is to
offer broad public access to a wide range of historical and cultural documents as
a contribution to education and lifelong learning.
The Library of Congress presents these documents as part of the record of
the past. These primary historical documents reflect the
attitudes, perspectives, and beliefs of different times. The Library of Congress
does not endorse the views expressed in these collections, which
may contain materials offensive to some readers.
