New York: New Directions, 1955. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. Dust jacket design by Alvin Lustig. New York: New Directions, 1955. First edition, first state. The gothic American story of brothers vying for their dying father's inheritance amid a whirlwind of sexuality, untethered in the person of Maggie the Cat. Despite the public controversy it stirred up, the play was received both the Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critics Circle Award. Small octavo. Original light brown cloth binding, with black titles. A few tiny stains to the fore-edge and bottom edge. The dust jacket is a trifle edgeworn, largely at the corners and tips, with some mild rubbing to the rear panel and a bit of light fading along the spine. A very good copy. (Inventory #: 64576)
