Toronto: Clarke, Irwin, & Company, Limited, (1953). Pp. (4),v-viii,(2),3-127,(1). 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario, in the summer of 1953 was significant for several reasons: because it was the most ambitious and successful venture in the Canadian Theatre that we have yet seen; because a new kind of theatre was built for the new manner of production which was practised there; because the presentations of Richard III and All's Well That Ends Well were of importance in the international world of the theatre. Theevent calls for some permanent record, and that is what the collaborators and the pulishers, with proper humility, offer in this book." - from Davies's preface. Very good in edgeworn, unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
