Shakespeare’s Boy Actors.
First Edition, First Impression of the author’s first book. Still a standard in the field. In a letter to a collector written in 1951 Davies reported having no spare copies of this book and that his best guess was that no more than 600 were in existence. Scarce in dust jacket.
