New York: Horace Liveright, 1931.. Cloth. Tiny corner crease to front free endsheet, front inner hinge cracking slightly, otherwise near fine, in good dust jacket with split along upper joint and across the spine panel. First edition, trade issue. A lovely association copy, inscribed by O'Neill the month following publication: "To Doctor & Mrs. Babbott - with grateful memories of a delightful summer at their Beacon Farm where I put in the final touches on this trilogy - Eugene O'Neill Dec. 1931." Accompanied by the original lease attending Eugene and Carlotta O'Neill's renting of Beacon Farm from 10 June through 15 October 1931, for the sum of $3500. The lease is signed in full by both Eugene and Carlotta, by the owner, Frank L. Babbott, Jr., as well as his attorney. O'Neill and Babbitt have each initialed three clauses in the body of the contract. The property was located at Eaton's Neck, Northport, Long Island, and based on the number of photographs extant of the O'Neills there, it was a happy, productive summer, and led into the Autumn production of this play trilogy. The contract, formerly torn down the middle, has been restored by an expert conservationist and preserved flat in a 10 x 31" cloth backed board folder. ATKINSON A32-I-I.a.
