AINSLIE, KATHLEEN. AINSLIE,KATHLEEN. TUT-TUT Richard II. London: Castell Bros., no date, circa 1910. Oblong 12mo (7 1/8 x 5"), flexible pictorial card covers with ties, except for offsetting of the pictures onto the text pages VG+ with covers bright and fine, Despite "a new edition" printed on the cover, this is the first and likely only edition. Ainslie has taken one line from various Shakespeare plays and reinterpreted the meaning through each illustration. For instance "Ay there's the rub" from Hamlet has a man rubbing the aching foot of a lady; "Take oh take those lips away" from Measure for Measure shows a cook chasin away a cat that's eating a fish from the table. There's a double page center spread with a quote from Byron. Quite scarce in decent condition.
