Entirely entertaining and intriguing for both dance enthusiasts and those who don't know a plié from a jeté." 352 pages, generously illustrated. CONDITION: a bright, tight, square, uncreased copy with no apparent shelfwear, unmarked but for the author's inscription. This glorious, highly collectible copy is now in a clear, protective polypropylene bag.. Signed and Inscribed by the Author. First Edition, Second Printing. Trade Paperback.

From Morn to Midnight - A Play in Two Parts [MANUSCRIPT EDITION]

By Kaiser, Georg

Privately Printed by Translator , 1964. An exceedingly rare copy of this original English-language play-script version, stated on the title page as "Authorized Translation by Ulrich Weisstein (Copyright 1964)". The plot of this 1912 play, unfolding in a single day, concerns a gullible bank teller who steals money from his bank, believing that a beautiful Italian customer wants to run off with him. (She doesn't.) This translation was subsequently published in 1967 by Holt Rinehart and Winston, in Oscar Brockett's anthology "Plays for the Theatre", possibly in a slightly different form. In original three-hole clip binder; 50 one-sided pages, including Notes. CONDITION: The mimeographed script pages are clean, unmarked, and uncreased, though a corner has been excised from the blank lower part of the last page and there are a couple places where the text is faded (but still legible). Its black binder, to which a title label has been affixed, is solid and secure, but shows some edge-, corner-, and spine-scuffing. This rare script is now in a clear, protective polypropylene bag with archival backing board.. Possible First Edition. Clasp-bound in Wraps. Very Good. 8.5" x 11". Manuscript Edition.

The Little Blue Light - A Play in Three Acts

By Wilson, Edmund

New York: Farrar, Straus and Company, 1950. Wilson's first piece of imaginative writing after his "Memoirs of Hecate County", this play takes place in a "country house about an hour and a half from New York", set in a "not-remote-future" of around 1960. 163 pages. CONDITION: The book itself is bright, tight, square, and unmarked, with light cover wear at the corners and spine ends. The interior is near-pristine, but for some age-discoloration on the paste-downs. Its dust-jacket - now in a clear mylar (removable) protective cover - fares less well, regrettably, showing considerable wear and discoloration, a price-clipped/repriced front flap, and substantial missing pieces at the top and bottom of the back cover and rear flap, compromising their respective texts (see back cover scan image). This nevertheless remains a quite respectable copy - at an excellent price. [NOTE: The cloudiness in the front cover scan is primarily due to scanner glare on the mylar dustjacket cover.]. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/Poor. Illus. by Stefan Salter (design). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
