It also features essays by lead actor and manager of "His Majesty's Theatre" Herbert Beerbohm Tree and costume and set designer Percy Macquoid. The exterior of this copy shows moderate soiling and minor wear affecting primarily the edges. The interior shows minor soiling, and the leaves other than the plates have darkened a little. A sliver along the upper edge of one leaf has darkened more than the rest.
