Shaw, [George] Bernard.
JOHN BULL'S OTHER ISLAND AND MAJOR BARBARA: ALSO HOW HE LIED TO HER HUSBAND.
London: Archibald Constable & Co., 1907. Octavo, original sea green cloth stamped in gold, t.e.g., fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First British edition. Shaw is perhaps the greatest British dramatist since Shakespeare, and MAJOR BARBARA is one of his best plays. Published on the same day as the American edition, though actually issued to the general public two days later. The English edition, however, contains additions not present in the American edition. It is therefore the preferred text. Laurence, A83b. Armorial bookplate of R. H. F. Moncreiff affixed to front paste-down. Mild dust soiling to cloth, a tight, very good copy. (#128958).
