This volume is a collected edition of Davidson's three series of 'Stories From The Operas', with added material. She presents all the incidents of each libretto in a clear, readable short story. The volume will appeal to all keen opera-goers and anyone with a passion for dramatic tales. There are also short biographies on each composer with some portraits.
The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages attached. There is some mild wear to the extremities including slight discoloration to the spine and some mild rubbing to the leather. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and isolated spot. There is an ink inscription covering the front pastedown. Overall the volume is in very good condition.
