    This title, first published in 1960, is intended primarily to increase the understanding of drama among those who do not have easy access to the live theatre and who, therefore, study plays mainly in print.

  • Laughterby Henri Bergson; Cloudesley Brereton; Fred Rothwell

    The Floating Press 1914; US$ 5.95
