Very Good. Item #7657
New York: Garland Publishing, Inc., 1998. First Edition. Octavo. xiv + 490 pages. Black and white photographs. Illustrated boards with black cloth stamped in silver. Folger Library discard with front pastedown label and pocket at rear.
Light edgewear to boards. Binding is sound. A touch of dust soiling to edges of text block. Light pencil markings—light as fairy-dust—on one essay.
This anthology of 23 critical essays includes work by Mark Van Doren, Jan Kott, and Barbara Freedman, among 20 others. Per the library pocket in the rear, a patron named "Hillary" borrowed it from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. in 2002—but it wasn't that Hillary.
