Description

    Three Novels by Dylan Thomas, Albert Goldman, and William Chambers Morrow, including: Dylan Thomas. Under Milk Wood: A Play for Voices. [New York]: New Directions, [1954]. Octavo. xiv, 107 pages. Frontispiece photographed portrait. Publisher's salmon weave textured boards with the spine lettered in white. Illustrated dust jacket designed by Owen Scott. Very light rubbing to the jacket. Altogether a near fine copy. This is one of the best known works of the highly influential and loved Welsh poet Dylan Marlais Thomas (1914 - 1953). First produced as a radio play and then adapted to a stage play and eventually a film, a storyteller guides the audience through the quiet dreams and bustling lives of a small Welsh village. Dylan first delivered this story on the BBC on September 9, 1953, with the author passing away soon after. This copy is the first written publication, and includes the musical notations by the composer Daniel Jones. [and:]Albert Goldman.
