How it works


One of the more sought after Folio Society titles in view of the eight wonderful full page colour plates by Dali of the decor and costumes used in a recent production of the play in Rome. With a six page introduction by Peter Brook. First edition thus. 

This copy is in extremely fine condition. The green decorated cloth covered boards are in fine condition with a hint of fading (a few mm.) at the base of the spine. Internally the book is absolutely fine, unmarked, crisp and without foxing. The attractive dustwrapper is in fine bright complete condition - no chips, tears, fading or price clipping. Note that in the image provided, the Brodart dustwrapper sleeve has not been removed. Very scarce in this superb condition.
