Excerpt from the Introduction: Throughout the adventurous life of Madame Vestris one fact is prominent: the publicity which accom�panied every step of her career from her debut at the King's Theatre in 1815 to her final appearance on the stage at the Lyceum in 1854. It would be difficult to find another actress who so stamped her personality on the public mind. One may well assume that her admirers did not think so much of the characters she impersonated-no matter what they were-as of Vestris herself, her lovely voice, her irresistible smile, her magnetic gaiety, the perfection of her figure, the grace of her movements, and the indefinable charm with which she invested every part she undertook.
