First Edition. 8vo, 156pp.
Signed presentation copy from the author to the famous actor/producer Arnold Daly, of one of her most successful plays. Poet/librettist George Turner Phelps has used the covers, pastedowns and end sheets to write a long letter to Daly urging him to produce the play with Dorothy Donnelly, who played opposite Daly in Shaw’s Candida. An added note by Peabody on the rear flyleaf approves.
Condition: Fair. A clean, tight copy internally; moderate wear to covers, title label on spine rubbed, end papers toned. But who cares -- it’s a $15 book enhanced immeasurably by the extras.
