Bernard Shaw - Pygmalion (My Fair Lady)
£10.00 Sold out
Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, or, as it is known in the world of moving pictures, My Fair Lady.
Penguin Edition 1946 first reprint. First edition in this binding. Number 300. Illustrated throughout with over 100 drawings by Feliks Topolski.
Re-printed to celebrate Bernard Shaw's ninetieth birthday, this immediately post-war Penguin is printed on extra thin paper due to the paper shortages at the time.
The play Pygmalion is perhaps best known for its famous 1964 film adaptation starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle.
Altogether now, "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain"...
