Except for a librarian's information penciled on the title page, there are very few markings, and the pages are not creased or torn. The gold embossed brown leather library binding is worn on the spine. A previous owner's name is written on the flyleaf, and remnants of two bookplates remain on the inside front cover. A library label is attached to the back flyleaf.
Each play has a two page enlightening introduction. Illustrated with 10 B & W photographs.
Measuring 7-1/4 inches by 5 inches by 1-1/2 inches, this book has 342 pages.
