[please click on the image or book title for more details]"as objects of beauty", but that would set limits which my love for books disregards. [...] I now possess more [books] than I will have time to read before I'm dead, because for years past I have been buying books faster than I can read them. I love ordinary trade editions, and after a few decades of buying -- not collecting -- them I now find I possess a number of collectable "firsts" simply by having stayed alive. It is of course a special delight to have a play in Arion's distinguished list. I confess that this beautiful production will not have the company it deserves on my bookshelves. I have never gone in for special editions, fine bindings etc. Perhaps it's not too late to start. Meanwhile "the Arion Arcadia" will receive the same jealous regard as my trade edition of, say, Max Beerbohm's A Christmas Garland picked up off a barrow for sixpence forty years ago -- there is no higher regard.'

(Stoppard's fondness for giving books as gifts is well known; the generosity he shows in doing it perhaps less so. When a friend of your cataloguer appeared as Bernard, the Byron scholar, in the most recent West End revival of Arcadia in 2009, Stoppard's opening night gift to him was a first edition of Byron's Hebrew Melodies (1815). It is not for sale.)

A fine copy of a glorious edition of a perfect play.
