About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Two plays for Puritans. by Shaw, George Bernard..

Description:

This edition (limited to 1500 copies) of Two Plays for Puritans by George Bernard Shaw ? the two plays being The Devil's Disciple and Caesar and Cleopatra ? bears both a long preface by the author and notes written by him for each play. George Him both illustrated and designed the book, and also signed the colophon. The book is heavily illustrated with => a considerable number of black-and-white line-and-wash drawings and 14 full-page color illustrations which were hand-colored by the pochoir process at the studio of Walter Fischer. These drawings are both beautiful and witty. In one color plate, for example, we see a line of picketing Egyptian soldiers carrying placards reading, "Egypt for the Egyptians," and "Caesar Go Home," the latter appearing in "Egyptian Hieroglyphs"; in another plate, we are treated to a breathtaking scene of the library at Alexandria being consumed by fire; in yet another drawing, we see an amusing little rendering of Belzanor's description of a seven-armed wife-eating Roman soldier! Him chose a monotype Plantin font for the text which was printed in Bloomfield, Connecticut, at the Sign of the Stone Book. The binding is full bright red "vellum book-cloth" stamped on the front with a double-eagle (one American, one Roman) design in gold, and stamped on the spine in black and gold leaf with a design of a Roman legionary standard bearing the title and the author's initials. The endpapers are "nugget-gold" Tweedweave. This offering does not include the monthly newsletter or the mailing notice. Folio. Frontis., [4], vii?xxxiv, illus. page, [1 (blank)], 3?215, [4 (3 blank)] pp.; 12 plts. Limited Editions Club, Bibliography of the Fine Books Published by The Limited Editions Club, 1929?1985, 381. A fine copy with the slipcase, which is covered in "nugget-gold" paper and stamped in black and gold. Slipcase showing traces of rubbing at top and bottom. A great treat for a Shaw-lover!.
