The Glass Menagerie
Tennessee Williams, 1945
WILLIAMS, Tennessee (1911-1983). The Glass Menagerie. New York: Random House, 1945.

A very fine first edition copy of the play that pulled Williams from obscurity. The Glass Menagerie was the most autobiographical of his plays, with characters drawing on Williams himself, his histrionic mother, and mentally fragile sister. It premiered in Chicago in 1944 and on Broadway the following year. It would win the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award as Best American Play.

Octavo. Original rust cloth; pictorial dust jacket (lightest wear at extremities); custom box.
