"In 1875, two years after Macready's death, his Reminiscences and selections from his diaries and letters, edited by the late Sir W.F. Pollock, bart., were published by Messrs. Macmillan. At that time it was thought desirable to withhold a considerable portion of the diaries, but after the lapse of nearly forty years the reasons for this suppression no longer hold good, and the most important of the omitted passages are accordingly given, for the first time, in the present work."--V.1, pref
The journal of William Charles Macready, 1832-1851 by William Charles Macready( Book )

14 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV> Besides being a great actor and the friend and associate of Dickens, Bulwer Lytton, Browning, and most of the principal figures in the drama and literature of his time, William Charles MacƯready (1793-1873) was a compulsive diarist. His journal of twenty-one years, during most of which he was at the head of the English stage, is a canƯdid and absorbing self-revelation. </DIV>

As you like it by William Shakespeare( Book )

7 editions published in 1842 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's As You Like It can appear bright or sombre in performance: a feast of language and a delight for comic actors; or a risk-taking exploration of gender roles. This edition offers an account of what makes the play both innocent and dangerous, mapping the complexities of its setting (a no-man's-land related to both France and England) and giving an ample commentary on its language and an analytical account of performance."--Jacket
