(illustrated oversize wraps) [clean and tight (no spine crease), very slight dog-earing to bottom right corner of front cover, no other significant wear]. (B&W photographs) Souvenir program book from ANTA West's tribute to Astaire, held on October 6, 1978, in celebration of his receipt of the 1978 National Artist Award. Approximately 120 pages, including numerous congratulatory ads and so forth, and an excellent chronology of the performer's long career in theatre, film, radio and TV. There is also a long article about his stage career, although it's not original to this volume (it's reprinted from Stanley Green and Burt Goldblatt's "Starring Fred Astaire"). A scarce item, this was the program for the event itself, and as far as I know was never offered for sale to the public.
