Product description

Publisher: Samuel French Ltd, London & New York, 1920, 1st edition. Hardback, 80 pages, no dustjacket, 2 full page photographic illustrations of stage set and cast of Aug 1917 Royalty Theatre production of the play. Cover, in maroon cloth boards with paste down title label to front, is in good / very good condition for its age with just a little bumping to corners and spine extremities. Internally the book is in good, clean and tight condition with no tears, creases or marks. Light tanning to pages commensurate with age and foxing to endpapers. Pencil inscription 'Harwood' on ffep so possibly this was co-author H.M Harwood's personal copy. The two full page photographic illustrations of the Royalty Theatre stage production of 1917 are in good, clean and bright condition. Overall, a nice copy of this classic WW1 stage comedy. F. Tennyson Jesse, who was married to H.M. Harwood and co-wrote a number of plays and scripts with him, was a celebrated early feminist novelist, perhaps most famous for her book 'A Pin to See the Peep-Show' which was a fictionalised treatment based on the real life 1922 Ilford murder case involving Edith Thompson and Frederick Bywaters.
