The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre Du Printemps): Sketches 1911-1913
London: Boosey & Hawkes, 1969. Cloth. Near Fine. A very nice Association copy: INSCRIBED BY BOTH IGOR STRAVINSKY (on the half-title) AND HIS GREAT FRIEND --AND WORKING PARTNER-- THE AMERICAN COMPOSER ROBERT CRAFT (on the title page) TO NATIONAL BOOK AWARD-WINNING NOVELIST SHIRLEY HAZZARD AND HER PARTNER, THE GREAT LITERARY BIOGRAPHER FRANCIS STEEGMULLER. A very sharp copy to boot of this 1969 London re-issue of Stravinsky"s "The Rite of Spring: Sketches 1911-1913", consisting of "facsimile reproductions of the autographs". Clean and Near Fine in its light-green cloth, with very light bumping to the upper tips and a touch of creasing along the spine base. Internally immaculate, with no writing or markings of any kind other than the inscriptions. Tall quarto, also includes a laid-in thank you card from Vera Stravinsky and an original snapshot of Igor, presented to Shirley Hazzard and taken in Beverley Hills in 1966.
