    First Edition of Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize Winner

    Thornton Wilder. Our Town. A Play in Three Acts. New York: Coward McCann, Inc., [1938].

    First edition of the play that brought Wilder his second Pulitzer Prize. Octavo. 128 pages.

    Publisher's brown cloth with blue paper labels lettered in white. Pictorial endpapers. Original dust jacket. Mild toning to the boards edges. Slightly shelf-cocked. Light rubbing to front board. Light wear to the edges of the price-clipped dust jacket, with mild paper loss at the corners and spine ends. Internal contents bright and clean. Overall, a very good copy of Wilder's first theatrical success.

    Our Town
    blazed a trail for minimalist theater by presenting no scenery, few props and following no clear traditional plot structure.
