Notes on Maeterlinck's Pelleas And Melisande

In an e-mail to the ModLib Mailing List on August 12 2012, Barry Neavill said:

"The spring 1927 jacket [on Miracle of Saint Antony and Five Other Plays gave] the title as PELLEAS AND MELISANDE AND OTHER PLAYS [as] a last ditch attempt to breath life into the title. They even rewrote the text on the front panel, misspelling (as you can see from the image [on the] jacket) 'furor' and 'Saint Antony'. The new jacket was used on remaining copies of the 1925 printing. It didn't help a bit, and Maeterlinck was discontinued in 1928."

Thanks to the contributors:
