Publisher: Harper & Brothers, New York

Binding: Hardback

Edition: First edition.


9.5" x 6". 91pp. Beige cloth with a black silhouette illustration, in dust wrapper. Near fine condition. The VG / VG+ jacket has a darkened spine and some light edge wear. With seven (of eight called for) half - tone Illustrations of the play's set designs by Albert Johnson. With a beautiful illustrated two page title page printed in black and orange. The play was set to music by Jacques Wolfe. Wolfe has signed and inscribed this copy on the first leaf: "December, 1942.
