Product description

The book was published by Constable and Company in London, 1914. Misalliance is a play written in 1909–1910. The play takes place on a single Saturday afternoon in the conservatory of a large country house in Hindhead, Surrey in Edwardian era England. The Dark Lady of the Sonnets is a 1910 short comedy in which William Shakespeare, intending to meet the "Dark Lady", accidentally encounters Queen Elizabeth I and attempts to persuade her to create a national theatre. The play was written as part of a campaign to create a "Shakespeare National Theatre" by 1916. Finally, Franny's First Play is a play written in 1911 ans it is a play within a play. There was a lot of publicity at the time of its release.



The light green hardback cloth cover is in good condition although the colour of the cloth has faded. The gold writing on the spine matches the gold, top edge trim of the pages inside. Although, apart from the top edge, the pages are untrimmed. Furthermore, the book has been written on by the previous owner on the front free end paper but this does not take away from the good condition overall.
