Quite attractive, tight first U.S. edition of this comic verse play -- with choice autograph addition: Tipped to front flyleaf is the signature of one of the lead actors from the first production of this play (Edinburgh, August 25-September 5, 1953). On a pale pink heavy stock 4" X 2" slip, MARGARET LEIGHTON (who played Lucasta Angel) signs large, bold and sloppy in blue ballpoint. Leighton (1922-76) was an Emmy and Tony Award-winning English actress of the stage, film and television.
