He That Plays the King

London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1950

8vo, pp. 256. Original green boards, lettered in black to spine. Illustrated dustwrapper. Bookplate to front pastedown. A fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper with just a little wear to spine ends.

First edition, second impression. JOHN GIELGUD’S COPY, WITH HIS BOOKPLATE TO FRONT PASTEDOWN. With a printed introductory letter by Orson Welles.

John Gielgud’s copy of Kenneth Tynan’s collection of theatre reviews and writings in which Gielgud features prominently -- and not always favourably:

‘Evening. Medea. I am humbly at a loss to account for the miracle by which every aspect of Mr. Gielgud’s latest adventure was contrived to appear so uniformly, harmoniously, and continuously bad.’

An understandably little read copy.
