An excellent copy."Dulac. was working on illustrations for The Tempest which Hodder and Stoughton were to release at Christmas as one of a series of Shakespeare plays on quarto volumes. Dulac's illustrations were much brighter. His feeling for the picture as a whole seemed more convincing and showed greater human understanding as the illustrations moved beyond stage scenes and became mood pictures or tone poems."Dulac's greater assurance in The Tempest was manifested on many beautifully observed scenes" (White, p. 36).Hughey 19a.
