New York: Random House, 1965. Hardcover. First edition. A near fine book in a very good dust jacket. Wear to the extremities and head and foot of the jacket, soiling to the rear panel. Offsetting to the front and rear pastedowns and evidence of sticker removal to the front pastedown. Signed by Arthur Laurents on a bookplate laid into the book. And signed and inscribed by Sondheim on the front free endpaper "For Jane and Bob from Stephen Sondheim 12/31/81." Jane and Bob Emerson managed the Drama Book Shop in Manhattan for many years, the go-to bookshop for theater professionals and aficionados. An uncommon book signed. The show closed after 12 previews and 9 performances but has since been acclaimed as part of Sondheim's canon and a cult favorite.
