London: Carlton Books Limited. Near Fine. 2013. First Edition. Hardcover. (heavy paper-covered boards; no dust jacket, as issued) [nice clean copy, just some minor bumping at the spine extremities, and some audible "creakiness" in the hinges when the book is opened]. (color photographs, facsimiles) "Beautifully illustrated with images from behind the scenes of both the theatre and film productions, this book tells the story of the incredible phenomenon that grew from a modest Paris production into a multi-award-winning show thanks to the collaboration of its writers Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and the theatrical producer Cameron Mackintosh" (who has contributed the Foreword). Includes four envelopes, bound into the book at intervals, into which are inserted twenty items of "memorabilia," including facsimile reproductions of the 25th anniversary production poster, a first-night party invitation, stage and costume drawings, scene drawings and set designs for the film, etc. All items are present. **** NOTE that additional shipping charges will be requested for international shipping of this heavy book, or for Priority Mail service to U.S. destinations.
