AMERICAN COSMOGRAPH. THEATRE ABBAS. Programme. Cairo, Paul Barbey, 1914.

Broadside 4to. Printed on red paper; 1 leaf; light sunning to margins; light folding creases throughout; a good example of an early cinema advertising programme.
A cinema programme from 1914, just after the outbreak of the First World War. It is an advertisement for film screenings at the American Cosmograph, Theatre Abbas in Cairo. Plenty of spelling errors throughout the text. 'To day the last novelities. The Marsh of the English Troopes [sic] in Cairo on the October 31st 1914.'
