Comments: This libretto for music that was never composed, was originally published in the periodical Botteghe Oscure. It is one of a very few copies with a new title page, binding & pagination that was given to the authors for their personal use. Presentation from Chester (Kallman) - "allegro con brio e andante con amore...." Kallman has made two holograh corrections in the text, one indicating "here a page is missing" ! Overall light soil, and a tiny nick on the upper front cover near the spine, otherwise fine. -- Bloomfield C418. Scarce.

I flew to NY from CA a couple of weeks ago, and while walking 59th, happened upon Argosy... Amazing! I had very little wiggle room in my time between meetings, but I made sure I came back the next morning, also. I'm so impressed, and reading about the family history of the store impressed me even more. Thank you for having such a marvelous bastion of knowledge there in the city! I was truly impressed. - Wil S.
