[book itself is solid and internally clean, some soiling and light shelfwear to top and bottom edges; the jacket, however, has had about as many bad things done to it as you can imagine: it's been laminated (which has resulted in considerable yellowing/discoloration, trimmed a bit along the top and bottom edges, and the flaps are glued to the pastedowns; some of the laminate has also been peeled away, which doesn't help matters much]. A novelization, essentially, of Brecht and Kurt Weill's "The Threepenny Opera." Jacket-blurbed as "an unashamed and outrageous epic of roguery triumphant -- a rollicking, full-blooded story, whole-hearted in its descriptions of rascality and corruption," this translation was first published in England in 1937 by Robert Hale. A not-especially-pretty example of a fairly scarce book.
