(no dust jacket) [nice-looking copy, light browning to edges of text block, very slight bump to bottom rear corner, pp. 92-93 irregularly opened (no loss of text)]. Drama about Samson and Delilah, an "authorized translation from the original manuscript." The translator has also provided a Preface, explaining his own relationship with Andreyev (who died in Finland in 1919, just at the time that Bernstein was making arrangements for him to visit America for the first time) and quoting from a number of the playwright's unpublished letters. This play was NOT the basis for the heavy-breathing 1949 Cecil B. DeMille film about S & D (in case you were wondering).
