(New York): New Directions Book, (1947). First edition of the play that starred Marlon Brando, in perhaps his best-known role, with Jessica Tandy, et al. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award. Made into a great film by Elia Kazan in 1951--also starring Brando, with Vivien Leigh, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden--which received 14 Oscar nominations, with Leigh, Hunter and Malden each winning one. The lavender pictorial boards show very little of the fading which is endemic with this book, paperboards scraped three very small areas on bottom edges and on front corners with the back bottom corner being a bit bumped. In dust jacket with the same Alvin Lustig design as the book which is faded on spine and top of covers with few tiny closed tears and tiny hole in front cover, although spine lettering is still bright and strong.
