[slight bump to top right corner of front cover, light foxing to bottom edge of text block, spine very slightly turned; unclipped jacket ($2.00 printed price) is lightly soiled, sun-browning to spine and along edge of rear flap, a bit of chipping at top of spine (slightly affecting the printed title thereon)]. An American classic. The novel was a best-seller, and the subject matter made its adaptation into a stage musical a natural; the Kern-Hammerstein musical opened on Broadway in December 1927 and ran for a year and a half; the first, mostly-silent version went into release in 1929, followed by full musical (talkie) adaptations in 1936 and 1951.
