OUR TOWN. Thornton WILDER.

OUR TOWN

New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., (1938). First Edition. Hardcover. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a touchstone of American theater. After reading this play, Albert Einstein wrote a letter to Wilder comparing OUR TOWN to Homer's ODYSSEY and Shakespeare's HAMLET, stating: "That an American of the present day can create with such delicacy and detachment touches the soul like a miracle." A tight, crisp copy in a beautiful dustwrapper with minor wear to the spine tips and a superficial scratch and tiny closed tear on the rear panel. The cloth is mildly sunned at the spine and to the very top edges of both covers with no effect on either the front cover or spine blue paper label. Lovely copy in a brilliant dustwrapper. Hard to improve on this. Fine in a Fine dustwrapper. Item #012334
