Lopez, Cover : Frontis Photograph, Luis Cajes (illustrator). First Thus. Orange cloth on boards. Volume has moisture wrinkles to covers, mostly close to the spine area front and rear, light edgewear.

Torn along the rear spine fold at the bottom edge up, with a small scuff tear in the mid rear panel. Now in protective wrap. "Joaquin published his first book in 1952, Prose and Poems, which included his long play 'A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino' (excluded in the second edition and published here as a separate book) A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino was first performed on stage on March 25, 1955, at the Aurora Gardens, Intramuros, Manila, under the direction of Lamberto V. Avellana." From the Foreword: ".Our Barangay Theatre Guild did excerpted readings from it [Portrait of the Artist as Filipino] it over DZPI which meant we had to do selective editing to fit radio time, in blocks of thirty minutes. We then edited the play down to a staging length of two hours and a half, this became known as the Barangay stage version - permission to use the play in a film, Portrait, meant we had to prune the original play down to a tight forty minutes. Portrait, the film is now a part of Philippine movie history. Between the covers of this book is the original play: full-blown, uncut, free from the dictates of radio, stage and screen.".
