42 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1933 and republished in 1958, this great work is an imagining, in plain narrative, of the life of Shakespeare backed with evidence of the history of the stage.
