    Arthur Miller Signed: Death of a Salesman. (New York: The Viking Press, 1949), first edition, 139 pages, orange cloth with brown lettering on spine and brown stamped binding of the stage set on front board, 8vo (5.75" x 8"), dust jacket (in protective mylar). Signed on the title page. Miller's play was the first to sweep the three major drama awards upon its opening in 1949, namely the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Tony, and the Pulitzer Prize, and continues to inform American culture to this very day. Willy Loman has, does, and will always represent the danger inherent in taking a too-narrow view of the American Dream, as well as revealing the disastrous affects a father's mishandling of his own life can have on his family. The dust jacket of this copy shows some wear to the spines, very slight edge wear, with a 2.5" tear on the front flap (barely noticeable in the mylar). Otherwise, this copy of the first edition is very clean and in about fine condition.
