1 Vian, Boris (translated from the French by Simon Watson Taylor) The Empire Builders
New York Grove Press, Inc. (c.1967) 2nd printing Softcover Good 
[book is only lightly worn, but has some neat pencil underlining sprinkled throughout the text]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) "An eminently respectable bourgeois family of father, mother, daughter, and their maid, flee, within the confines of their own home, from a strange, unknown, and terrifying Noise which pursues them as they move upward from floor to floor until they reach the attic. ... In a progression of mounting horror and the darkest comedy, the family is reduced to nothing and the curtain falls on one of the most terrible scenes in the modern theater." Illustrated with 24 photographs, showing the "varied conceptions of the play as presented in Paris, London, Helsinki, Vienna, Brussels, Malmo, and Berlin." The first of Vian's plays to be published in America, following his death in 1959. Surprisingly scarce.
