MIME The Step Beyond Words - For the Actors of Dance and Drama

2 copies of MIME The Step Beyond Words - For the Actors of Dance and Drama. The first copy, acquired in 1985 was formerly the reference copy in the Ryerson Polytechnical Institute Library, and this book bears the associated stamps and stickers. The second copy, acquired in 2013, is in poor condition, with most of the pages separated from the binding. This copy includes a short handwritten note from Pecknold to Michael Langham, who wrote the book's preface. This copy has also been lightly annottated, possibly by Pecknold.
