A Queen's Romance: A Version of Victor Hugo's "Ruy Blas" Written for Lewis Waller

London: Grant Richards, 1904. Hardcover. First Edition. Interesting presentation copy from the author to Lyster Ryle, the manager of the Imperial Theatre, where the play was first produced in 1901: “To Lyster Ryle with kind regards from John Davidson ‘Now, a truce to your reproaches.’” This line was said by the character Don Caesar in the first act. Bound in original red cloth with title and author in gilt on spine and front cover. Lightly bumped corners but in very good condition. Some scattered foxing and offsetting to endpapers but otherwise very nice. 111 pages plus 3 pages of ads. DRA/121911. Very Good.
