Shakespeare's Boy Actors.London, J. M. Dent & Sons, 1939 Stock Code: 38548
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.
Octavo. Original blue cloth, device to front board in blind, titles to spine gilt, top edge stained blue. With dust jacket.
With 8 plates.
Contents lightly toned as usual, top stain faded, spine a little dull but an excellent copy in the nicked and mildly tanned dust jacket with a single tiny chip at one corner.
