The Mikado Programme Savoy Theatre, London
Scarce programme booklet for the 1885 performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's, 'The Mikado - Or the Town of Titipu', at London's Savoy Theatre. Interestingly, almost all of the ads also have a Japan theme so the Japonisme boom had well and truly arrived. Mention is also made of the help given by staff of the Japanese Village at Knightsbridge. The rear cover has a lovely ad for Liberty Art Fabrics.
