Original pictorial colour card covers. Some corner wrinkles and age toning. Text takes Shirley through a "typical" day, from her home to the studio, to lunch with Mother in her own four-room bungalow, a nap, "school" with her private teacher, then home, where she waits for Daddy to get home from his work at the bank. They play croquet before dinner, and after the meal there is always a story. In the summer, older brothers George and Jack are home from university and military school, so they might invite Shirley for some football. 32 stapled pages. View more info

Edition: First ( No Additional printings)

Seller ID: 006655

Condition: Very Good


Original grey cloth on boards. No writing. The only blemish I see is the remains of a price tag on DJ cover (The remains might be removed with water or steam). The introduction by Herbert Whittaker is masterful as he praises and lambastes the various actors. The photographs are so stolidly staged as to appear to be carved in wax if not in stone. To this recent immigrant "from away" (I came from Ohio over 40 years ago), seeing Don Harron greet William Shatner in The Taming of the Shrew brought wildly incongruous visions of Charlie Farquarson aboard USS Enterprise ! At any rate, th... View more info

Original blue cloth with two large irises on boards. No DJ. The play was first mounted in Washington, D.C., on 13 Sept., 1897, at the newly-built Lafayette Square Opera House. Two weeks later it opened on Broadway at either the Olympia Theatre Lyric or the Empire (Our sources conflict).

Several others are shown of the total cast of 16. The Washington opening was on a very hot night. Since ... View more info

Edition: Fifth Impression

Seller ID: 002632

Condition: Very Good


Original dark green cloth with bright gilt lettering on boards. Thanks to Emma Goldman's critique in The Social Significance of the Modern Drama, I have discovered a critically important play. After punching it up on Google, I spent several minutes questioning my own attitudes toward poverty and panhandlers. Perhaps it will do the same for you - or a miserly friend. This book is perfectly clean and sound, and would make a thought-provoking gift to any thinking person. 80 pp. View more info
