Edited by Christopher St. John. 334 pages, cloth, very good. 'A note as to why this book was selected as the June Book Dividend - The loveliest, the tenderest love story any writer could conceive! The publishers of this book have described it, and it seems with justification, as one of the few outstanding literary sensations of our period. Bernard Shaw is now an old man; Ellen Terry, the glorious and incomparable, has been dead many years. Unknown to but a few, when both were at the height of their fame, for a period of 25 years they carried on this devoted and delightful correspondence; and last winter it was published to an astonished world. Readers will remember the newspaper sensation that resulted - in particular, the attacks upon Shaw by Gordon Craig, Ellen Terry's son. But the book did not need any adventitious publicity; for it was immediately recognized, on two continents, as a correspondence unique in English literature. . . This edition being distributed as a book-dividend is printed from the same plates as the original, and is identical in other respects with the regular five-dollar trade edition.'.
