Toronto: Clarke, Irwin, 1954. First edition (pp. xiv, 193). Small folio (23.5 cm) in brown cloth with gilt titles; illustrated with 38 plates in colour and b&w, the work of Grant MacDonald representing a pictorial record of the Festival season including Oedipus Rex, Taming of the Shrew, and Measure for Measure. Noteworthy are portraits of James Mason, William Shatner, and William Hutt (Canadian will recognize, as well, Frances Hyland, Donald Harron, Mavor Moore, and Bruno Gerussi). The text, a commentary on the season's productions, is by Davies who observes of William Shatner's portrayal of Lucentio that 'he is a clever man wrestling with a disabling gaucherie.' Guthrie contributes a brief essay. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.
