British Theatrical Patents 1901-1950

Like the earlier volume covering the 19th-century this collection of patents registered at the British Patents Office is a valuable resource for anyone interested in theatre, engineering, magic, and architecture. It includes many fascinating developments relating to moving lights, projection, dimming and control, as well as staging, illusions, and many other aspects of theatre technology. It reads like the Who’s Who of entertainment manufacturing.
