New York: Random House. (1943). First. First edition. Erased name on the front fly, leaving a shadow, else fine in a very attractive, near fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with very shallow loss at the spine ends. The extremely fragile, rough-textured soft paper jacket makes this one of the scarcest titles to find in an already scarce genre, as musicals were seldom published in very large printings -- this is a lovely copy. The first collaboration by the most successful writing team of American musical theatre, this landmark musical based on Lynn Riggs' play Green Grow the Lilacs was a smash hit on Broadway and won a special Pulitzer Prize. Many of the show's songs, including "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" and the title song, became instantly recognizable classics. In 1955 it became a successful Fred Zinnemann film featuring Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones, and with a supporting cast including Rod Steiger and Eddie Albert. The film won Oscars for Best Score and Sound Recording. Among the great highspots of the American stage. .
