The quality of this public domain volume is atrocious. The first page is lacking, the type is very difficult to read, and on numerous pages the left margin is cut off. Nabu Press provides no way of contacting the publisher. There is value in making out-of-print public domain books available to readers but this enterprise appears to have no editorial standards.

Great story! It had an amazing story line! It's almost like a Romeo and Juliet story mixed with some ever after but 10x better

this copy of the play had typos and for the price it should have included both endings. Buy this from another provider.
