About This Item

xi+192 pages with plates, appendices and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound in original quarter black cloth with silver lettering to spine in original pictorial jacket. First edition. From the London Sunday Telegraph: Acting Shakespeare is extraordinary. The tone of the voice is unmistakably Sir John's, the atmosphere congenial. We're in the company of our greatest actor, who holds in his hands the last links of a chain of tradition leading to Shakespeare himself ... this book is crucial for anyone who believes that Shakespeare on the stage should be Shakespeare at his greatest ... Gielgud is by turns, wise, witty and wicked, but unfailingly modest. Condition: Near fine in like jacket.
