This is a great play but I want to know which of the editions will be best displayed on my nook.

I found a reference to this play in one of Connie Willis' books. It's a look at how social privelege does not equate to ability. When a lord and his family are shipwrecked the butler becomes the undisputed leader. But when they return to England everyone hides the truth .
