First edition, first printing. Original blue cloth with gilt titles to the spine and a gilt illustration to the upper board. Illustrated throughout with numerous tissue-guarded illustration plates of costume and theatrical designs by the likes of Edmund Dulac, Laura Knight, and Charles Ricketts, among others. A very good copy, the binding firm, the cloth with some marks and abrasions and a little bumping to the spine. The contents, with a colour pencil number to the front free endpaper and some spotting to the text block edges and occasionally internally, are otherwise clean, the plates bright, complete with the sometimes creased captioned tissue guards.
An in depth and heavily illustrated look at theatrical costume.
