London: Oxford University Press, 1930. Craig, Edward Gordon. First edition. Hardcover. 21 pages in text. Large folio, 51 x 39 cm, Limited edition copy 90 of 105 on hand-made paper signed by Edward Gordon Craig (from total edition of 605). Thirty-two full page theatrical designs, including eleven in color -- watercolor, chalk and gouache drawings with tissue guards. As a director Craig was testy, and considered extremely difficult to work with; he ultimately refused to direct or design any project over which he did not have complete artistic control. In practice this left him mainly jobless for the last forty years of his life. Orig. vellum backed red cloth, front cover and spine lettered in gilt. Teg. Near fine in chipped, worn paper chemise and nicked green slipcase. Item #20904
