3 copies, octavo. Original blue-flecked paper wrappers. Housed in a green half morocco slipcase and individual chemises. One copy ink-stamped "Second Proof" and "R&R Clark LTD Edinburgh 27 Feb. 1914". Excellent copies. Three copies, in various states, of rehearsal or rough proof editions of Great Catherine, each inscribed by Shaw ("G. Bernard Shaw 26/7/30") with a short explanation. Two copies are in an early state, with the Byron quote on the title uncorrected, and lacking a copyright line on the verso of the title. In his inscriptions, Shaw refers to these copies as " an early rehearsal copy. The misquotation from Byron's Don Juan is uncorrected "; and "This seems to be really a spare proof and not a rehearsal copy. I do not know how it got loose " Shaw has corrected the quote in ink on one copy. The third copy is printed on thicker paper, corrects the title page quote, and includes the copyright slug. Shaw describes it in his inscription, as " a rehearsal copy, nominally a 'rough proof' " Laurence AA8. N° de ref. de la librería 73686
