Washington DC: Librix Continuum 2004. Washington, DC: Librix Continuum, 2004.. Large folio (50 x 35 cm; 20 x 13.5"). Full khaki calf, lettered in blind, ruled in gilt. Illustrated with three colored offset lithographs by Clarice Smith. Fine. Enclosed in the publisher's mammoth (21 x 15.5") full brown calf suede-lined folding box, decorated in gilt and blind, and further enclosed in the oversize stiff board folding box, with prospectus inserted in sleeve in upper lid. First edition in this format, including the first book publication of "These are the Stairs You Got to Watch," in company with CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF and THE GLASS MENAGERIE. One of 1500 numbered copies printed on Fabriano Rusticus, published in concert with the Shakespeare Theatre and the Kennedy Center / Shakespeare Theatre's production of FIVE BY TENN, directed by Michael Kahn. Kahn contributes a Preface, and David Bruce Smith, the publisher, has provided commentary as well as the text of an interview with Williams. Three additional prints, signed by the artist, are enclosed in a folding compartment in the slipcase. The title leaf is signed by the designer, John Paul Greenwalt. It would appear that a portion of the edition (750 unnumbered copies) appeared (later?) in three less cumbersome volumes, in reduced format (18 x 14") and modified slipcase, and are denoted by the publisher as the "Standard Edition." Substantial extra shipping charges apply.
