Publication Date: 1924
Edition: First Edition.
INSCRIBED by George S. Kaufman, Marc Connelly, and the producer, Winthrop Ames, on July 17, 1924, to Maxwell Selser, a member of the original cast, "as a little souvenir of his 200th performance. " A hit on Broaway where it premiered on February 12, 1924, BEGGAR ON HORSEBACK ran for 223 performances. The film version, starring Edward Everett Horton, hit the screen in 1925. Maxwell Selser's later career included a role in the premiere of THE JAZZ SINGER. In 1938, Selser authored a comedy, EYE ON THE SPARROW, that is today remembered only because Montgomery Clift was in the cast. A very good copy with the folding newspaper insert present. Kaufman's signature is very uncommon; an excellent association copy of a wonderful play. Bookseller Inventory # 13077
