Notes

Page proofs, first state, hand-corrected by Shaw. The rare first state page proofs of Shaw's Preface to Three Plays by Brieux, which was published in 1911 by A. C. Fifield. Laurence located only 8 copies and notes "Shaw used copies of this proof state (and of the revised proof which followed) for purposes of translation and copyright deposit." It appears this copy was used by Shaw to make corrections for the first edition setting of the text. He initialled and marked the text "Confidential" and made corrections in pen throughout. Together with Preface to Three Plays by Brieux, published in New York in 1910 by Brentano's. The American copyright edition (Laurence A104c) with the front wrapper torn off. This edition incorporates some of the corrections Shaw made to the proofs.
