SIGNED BY GARFIELD AND FOREMAN
FOREMAN, Michael (illustrator). Leon GARFIELD (author). Shakespeare Stories II. London; Victor Gollancz. 1994.
Royal 8vo. Publisher's royal blue linson boards, in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [iii] + 284 + [iii]; with full-page coloured plates and smaller illustrations in black and white throughout; a very good fresh copy protected by an equally fine, unclipped dustwrapper (£14.99).
First edition, double-signed in ink to the title-page by both Garfield and Foreman. Nine of Shakespeare's plays including Much Ado About Nothing, Julius Caesar, and As You Like It are rewritten here for a young audience. Leon Garfield wrote more than thirty books for adults and children but is probably best known for his historical novels for children. Many of these have been adapted for television, as were his scripts for Shakespeare, the Animated Tales.
