Handbook of Classical Drama, 1944 Philip Whaley Harsh
Handbook of Classical Drama, 1944 by Philip Whaley Harsh provides a basic study of Greek tragedy and Old and New Comedy as well as Roman Comedy and Tragedy.
This First Edition, a rare and hard to find collectible red hardcover book, is initialed by the author with his handwritten note to an esteemed professor who helped with Harsh's writing of this scholarly achievement.
Assuming that Greek Tragedy is one of the greatest achievements of human genius, Harsh directs his analysis toward the student of drama who is familiar with classical drama of the Western World.
This seventy-five year old book is in good antiquarian condition. Its pages are browned, and the cover spine shows its age in fading and shelf wear. The book is, however, strong and firm in its binding, and there are no tears on pages or markings other than the brief comment by the author on the flyleaf.
The book measures 6 1/4 inches by 9 1/4 inches by 2 inches and has 526 pages.
