Catalogue Note

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to the translator. "If it had not been for you, this book would never have seen the light of day, because I did not believe in either its usefulness or is success," Stanislavski begins. He then goes on to praise the literary-nature of the translation, and finished with: "I kiss your hand, I embrace you in friendship, and in token of my sincere gratitude." Stanislavski was widely regarded as an outstanding character actor, but he is perhaps best remembered for his "system" of actor training.
