I'm a book nerd. I love this book because it contains the plot summaries of so many plays I've heard of, but will never get to read.

I photographed the table of contents, so you can see what's in there. Some of the more recognizable plays include Tobacco Road, The Green Pastures, Sherlock Holmes, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Disraeli, Peter Pan, The Importance of Being Ernest, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Everyman, The Barber of Seville, The Misanthrope, Tartuffe, Phedre, Faust, William Tell, A Doll's House, The Three Sisters, The Power of Darkness, The Dybbuk, Electra, Oedipus the King, Prometheus, and six Shakespeare plays.

The original owners of this book were voracious readers of plays, poetry, and literature; this volume was part of their vast library. It's in excellent vintage condition, with a sound binding and clean pages. The cover shows typical fading; the leaves have a warm vintage hue. There are three small checkmarks on page ix in the table of contents; those are the only marks I could find.

The carpet is perfect! Using it for one of the centerpieces at my Disney themed wedding, at the Aladdin table. The package was delayed due to some snowstorms and the seller was great with communication and trying to help me find out where the package was. Luckily it still arrived with plenty of time for my wedding as well. 😊
