Words: Gertrude Stein, Music: Virgil Thomson. Loose folio sheets, and oblong quarto book in printed wrappers, accompanied by an audio CD, enclosed in a red cloth folding clamshell box. The clamshell case is moderately soiled, with bumping to corners. The inclosed sheets and book are in Fine condition (there is a small discolored spot on the front cover sheet, but it appears to be original to the sheet). The CD is housed in a specially designed compartment within the box, but velcro tab that is supposed to hold the CD in place is flawed; as a result, the compartment doesn't remain closed. The audio CD has scratches, however, it plays fine. The text consists of three previously printed pieces by Gertrude Stein on Pablo Picasso: "Picasso" (1909); "If I Told Him: A Completed Portrait of Picasso" (1923); and PICASSO (1938). These pieces are printed in an oblong quarto booklet which sits in a fitted slot in the box. Virgil Thomson's piece, including his music, is entitled "Bugles & Birds: A Portrait of Pablo Picasso" (30 April 1940), and the score is reproduced in facsimile from the original manuscript. The CD of the performance by Suzzan Craig, pianist, was recorded at Steinway Hall, New York City, 1992. Bookseller Inventory # 10172
