London: J.M. Dent, 1934. The New Temple Shakespeare Edition. From the library of distinguished English actor Sir Alec Guinness with his bookplate which depicts in a bold graphic style an actor on stage wearing a Shakespearean costume of tights and a cape. Some moisture rippling to the bottom edge, else a very good lightly used copy with some dust soiling to the cloth with gilt-stamping still bright without dust jacket. Sir Alec Guinness’ long and celebrated career is highlighted with many dramatic and comedy roles on stage and in film and is noteworthy for his uncanny versatility in appearance and behavior. Younger audiences may remember him best for his work in the Star Wars trilogy as the wise spiritual warrior Obi-wan Kenobi, but for many of us his memory evokes his role as the staunch British colonel in The Bridge on the River Kwai for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1957, and for his work in The Lavender Hill Mob, The Horse’s Mouth, Lawrence of Arabia, and many more.
