Gordon Daviot's 'Richard of Bordeaux' was a sensation when it was first produced in 1932. It ran for over a year in London and catapulted its star and producer, John Gielgud, into super-stardom. Audiences loved it for its accessible language, dramatic scenes and the sensitivity with which it dealt with Richard II's relationship with his Queen, Anne of Bohemia. Gordon Daviot was a pseudonym of Elizabeth Mackintosh, better known for her detective novels written as Josephine Tey. This is a completely new edition - not a scan - based on the original 1933 version, from Oxford City Press.
