About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Streetcar Named Desire, A by Williams, Tennessee.

Description:

Rare first edition of Tennessee Williams's most famous and enduring work, which won the Pulitzer Prize and is considered, along with Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" and O'Neill's "Long Days journey" one of the towering plays in modern American theater, still performed in major productions by major actors. First edition, first printing features matching lavender cover and jacket, with Alvin Lustig's "New Orleans Street Dance" graphics design in black and white. DJ Spine ends chipped, faded close to spine ends. Small tape repair on rear underside of DJ near DJ crown, chipping to DJ's crown, base and edges. Tear at upper right of DJ's front panel. Price clipped. Correct $2.75 DJ price penciled in by previous owner. Williams's name in gold on spine. The first edition begins with printed dialogue between Eunice and the Negro woman; the second edition begins with printed dialogue between Stanley and Stella. In this copy the play begins with the dialogue between Eunice and the Negro woman, thus it is a true first edition. Also, error on p. 161 line 17 reads "Stella." It was Blanche's line and the error was corrected in later printings. Text block is firm and pages tight. Interior pages unmarked. When "Streetcar" was made into a movie, contemporary film censorship took its toll: the rape scene and certain other scenes were edited out, and modifications were made so that the film version would not reflect Williams's attitudes toward homosexuality, unlike the stage version. Only 5080 copies of the first edition were printed; most available on the used book market are tattered and worn. This is a rare copy, still decent, in glassine cover. Bookseller Inventory #
