About this Item

As the on-line Britannica succinctly summarizes him, Craig (1872?1966) was an "actor, theatre director?designer, producer, and theorist who influenced the development of the theatre in the 20th century." He was also the son of actress Ellen Terry. First printing. The diary has been reduced in length by about one-third for publication and edited by Colin Franklin. It covers a low point in Craig's life, but is detailed and tells of his friends Beerbohm, Isadora Duncan, Lovat Fraser, and others; the more offensive anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi comments were omitted. "Three hundred fifty copies of this book have been printed at the Bird & Bull Press in March 1982. The text is composed in Baskerville types by Mackenzie-Harris Corp., printed on mouldmade Bugrabutten paper and bound by Gray Parrot. This is copy No. 149." FYI: Original publication price was $160. And it's still a lovely book. Small 4to (22 cm; 8.625"). 154 pp., [1 (colophon)] f., col. facsims. Heaney, Thirty years of Bird & Bull, A34. Publisher's quarter tan goat with tan and white paper sides. Clean and fresh. Bookseller Inventory # 36133
