Shakespeare's Boy Actors

London: J. M. Dent, 1939. First edition (vii, 207, index, bibliography [208]), frontis and eight plates. Octavo, in blue cloth with gilt titles to spine, impressed decoration to front cover. Davies first book, his Oxford honours thesis, reflects his early and abiding interest in play-acting and illusion.

A bright, clean copy of Davies' first book. Scarce.
