I would not recommend this particular edition of the play. The notes are supposed 'to help the modern reader appreciate Shaw's wit and cynicism,' but they give the reader little more information than could already be gleaned from the context. For example, following 'The only landscape is a Cecil Lawson' is this note: 'Cecil Lawson--(1851-1882) an English landscape painter.' What this actually means in the context of the play, whether the painting is fashionable, what it means in regard to Mrs. Higgins character--none of this is given. There are also several glaring typographical errors in the text. It may seem to be an economical purchase, but you will get your money's worth, and nothing more.
