        Summer and Smoke Opera in two acts based on the play by Tennessee Williams Libretto by Lanford Wilson. Op. 27. Autograph musical manuscript of the complete full score, signed and dated by the composer on the final page: "North Salem, NY, 27 May 1971."

      After hearing Hoiby's earlier opera, A Month in the Country (the revised version of his Natalia Petrovna, based on a play by Ivan Turgenev, premiered by the New York City Opera in 1964), Tennessee Williams approached Hoiby with the suggestion that he might be interested in writing an opera based on one of Williams's works. Hoiby's setting of Summer and Smoke was the result; it is the first opera to be based on a Williams play and is perhaps Hoiby's most famous work. Commissioned by the St. Paul Opera Association, Summer and Smoke was composed in 1970 and premiered on June 19th 1971 in St. Paul, Minnesota with Igor Buketoff conducting. It went on to a production by the New York City Opera on March 12th 1971 under Julius Rudel. "It continues to be performed with substantial success, and its 1980 production by the Chicago Opera Theater was broadcast in June 1982 by PBS-TV (WTTW), Chicago, and seen nationally. For its production during the Lee Hoiby Festival at California State University, Long Beach in 1989... Hoiby added a new scene in Act 1 drawn from his Three Women: Scenes for Soprano, Saxophone and Piano (1988)..." "... Summer and Smoke is a skilful interweaving of offstage music and spoken passages. It is a lyrical, poetic and compelling work that critics praised as America's most successful opera to date. Paul Hume (writing in the Washington Post) considered it an 'opera of immense emotional power flooded with music of great beauty'." Grove online Considered "a modern Romantic from the lineage of Barber and Menotti," Hoiby's Summer and Smoke is regarded as having achieved "an eloquence comparable to the later works of Barber." op. cit. More recently, the work was revived at the Manhattan School of Music, where it received three performances in December, 2010: "When... Summer and Smoke... had its premiere in 1971, it was criticized by some for its conservative music, awash in the harmonic language of Menotti (Mr. Hoiby's mentor), Barber and Mahler, and its unabashedly lyrical vocal writing. But the work, with an effective and delicately poetic libretto by the playwright Lanford Wilson, also won deserved praise for doing what an opera is supposed to do: telling the story with sure dramatic pacing and understated expressivity, in music admirable for its directness and melodic grace." "These qualities shone through on Wednesday night when the Manhattan School of Music Opera Theater presented the first of three performances, with Mr. Hoiby, 84, in attendance. The conductor Steven Osgood drew supple, beautifully restrained playing from the able musicians." "Set in Glorious Hill, a small Mississippi town, the story unfolds during several momentous months in the lives of two young adults who grew up as neighbors: John Buchanan Jr., a dashing doctor, and Alma Winemiller, the sweet but inhibited daughter of a pious minister. The handsome production, directed by Dona D. Vaughn, using windows and sets that descend into place, imaginatively evoked the neighboring houses: the staid sitting room in the rectory where the Winemillers live and the doctor's office where young John Buchanan practices with his father." Anthony Tommasini in The New York Times, December 9, 2010.. Elephant folio (ca. 500 x 330 mm.). Unbound. [1] (title, including cast list and instrumentation), 496 pp. Notated in pencil on 28-stave music manuscript paper on one side of each leaf only. Numerous leaves comprised of sections taped together to form a single leaf; pp. 407-462 on slightly smaller format paper; pp. 251-255 in photographic copy with autograph additions. A little minor soiling and wear. In very good condition overall.

Together with a 1-1/2 pp. closely-typed copy of a letter dated February 13, 1967 written by Hoiby to the librettist of the work recounting in considerable detail the challenges he was having composing the work: "I have been in the lowest of depths for about the last two months, all because of Summer and Smoke... I've never had the depressing conviction that something just didn't 'work.' By now, I'm afraid I'm utterly and completely disenchanted with what I've written, and shall have to begin all over again. I have many times tried to begin Scene 2, and found myself in a paralytic vice of creative blockage... I may find that I am unable finally to do this opera, though at this point I don't accept that idea." 3.

        [In Czech:] TROSECNÍKEM Z VLASTNÍ VULE. [THE VOYAGE OF THE HERETIQUE]

      Praha: Orbis, 1964. One of the most innovative binders of his time, the Czech Jan Sobota (1939-2012) produced a wide range of bindings demonstrating a remarkable store of imagination and whimsy. He studied under Karel Silenger in Pilzen and graduated from the School of Applied Arts in Prague in 1957. In 1969 he was awarded the title of "Master of Applied Arts" in bookbinding and restoration by the Czechoslovakian Minister of Culture, and in 1977 he became a member of Meister der Einbandkunst. He came to America in 1984 to work at Case Western Reserve and moved in 1990 to Dallas. The present binding, an enclosed note about which says it was executed in 1979, comes from the collection of the great British bookbinder Philip Smith. The book is a Czech edition of a book first published in 1954 about an extraordinary ocean crossing. The French physician, biologist, adventurer, and politician Alain Bombard (1924-2005) became famous in 1952 for allegedly drifting in a 15-foot rubber boat across the Atlantic in 65 days, from the Canary Islands to Barbados, without provisions. It is not entirely clear why Sobota has chosen a flask shape for the binding, as Bombard made it clear that his only liquid intake was seawater and fluids squeezed from raw fish; perhaps it was our binder's droll suggestion of an option the good doctor should have made available to himself.. 237 x 139 mm. (9 1/4 x 5 1/2"). 181, [3] pp. WHIMSICAL OLIVE-GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO IN THE SHAPE OF A LIQUOR FLASK BY JAN SOBOTA, upper board with the author's embossed initials "AB," smooth spine, a "neck" of green morocco with protruding brown leather mock cork atop the flask acting as a closure for the book, leather hinges. In the original felt-lined morocco and linen dropback box. With 12 pages of black and white photographs. Perhaps a hint of soiling to leather, but essentially in mint condition.
