Pictures at Play or Dialogues of the Galleries (Longmans, 1888) with W. E. Henley (Available in the Lilly Library, Indiana University). See in WorldCat. [This illustrated dialog is not precisely a drama; but it is hard to categorize the work.] In Lang and Henley’s preface, they state, “It is familiar to all that the old portraits in old houses habitually come out of their frames at night, and walk and talk. Every one knows this who has ever read a Christmas Number. But it may be less generally credited that the people in the new pictures, in the Academy and other galleries, have also their play-time, stroll about, and exchanged their ideas about Art and Life. Their conversation has, this year, been overheard and set down in the following Dialogues by two Art-critics, who respectfully warn the young against literary collaboration. Each of us holds diametrically opposite opinions about Art. Each of us has the least flattering estimate of his colleague, and, if you will listen to A, B is a heavy-handed wag, while A (to B’s mind) is a frivolous pedant. But, if the Public will only bestow on the whole that approval which each of us thinks due to half of the work, and which both are ready to lend the designs of Mr. Harry Furniss, then this period (which is certainly rather unmanageable) will arrive at a happy conclusion.” Some of the portrait subjects who speak include W. E. Gladstone (who discusses Mary Augusta Ward’s Robert Elsemere with the Prince of Prussia), and Cardinal Manning.
My Own Fairy Book (Arrowsmith/Longman’s, Green, and Co., 1895), which includes Prince Prigio, Prince Ricardo, and The Gold of Fairnilee. The preface, “To Children” is worth reading for researchers interested in Lang and Fairy Tales.
