Also uncovered during the renovation of the Princeton University Library was this small but important playbill from a French production of James Joyce’s Exiles, held at the Théâtre Gramont, Paris. The play in three acts was written in 1914 and published simultaneously in an English and an American edition on May 25, 1918.

To mark the acquisition of the Leonard L. Milberg ’53 Collection of Irish Theater, the Princeton University Library mounted the exhibition, Players & Painted Stage: The Leonard L. Milberg Collection of Irish Theater, running October 2006 to April 2007. The show merged holdings from the library, newly acquired Milberg material, and other donations.
