Typhoon: A Play in Four Acts
Methuen and Co., London 1913 - First English edition. Translated by Laurence Irving. Foxing to the foredge, near fine in near fine pictorial dustwrapper with a couple of tiny nicks and tears. Inscribed by the translator: "Ralph Leach with the best wishes of Laurence Irving." A play by a Hungarian author that starred Laurence Irving himself, alongside a young Claude Rains, in its 1913 London debut. It was the basis for at least three films, including a 1914 U.S. version directed by Reginald Barker and featuring Sessue Hayakawa, Gladys Brockwell, and Frank Borzage. Many of Lengyel's stories and plays were filmed, most notably *Ninotchka* and *To Be or Not To Be*. Very scarce in jacket, and doubly scarce signed by the translator and star Irving -- he drowned in the horrific sinking of the *RMS Empress* in 1914. See this book in 3D on our site.
