Notes

First edition, first impression, of this collection of five plays written for the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. Tipped-in between the front endpapers is a card with a gift inscription from the poet R. C. Trevelyan, "Cicely and Laurence Binyon from R. C. Trevelyan Christmas 1941", along with Trevelyan's poem "A Dream" pasted on. Binyon is best known for his 1914 First World War poem "For the Fallen", which is often used during Remembrance Sunday services.
