    Limited edition copy, one of 2000, with line drawings illustrations by Al Hirschfeld, and signed at colophon by him. With LEC monthly Letter for the laid-in, noting a description of the binding: " ...The fine aniline leather on the spine, in burgundy, complements the covering cloth, imported from Italy by Clarence House Imports of New York. The 'Chequered Lady' pattern was hand-printed in thirteen colors. Quarter leather spine and decorated boards. Approx.8x13 inches. Fine in a near fine slipcase.
    It is a very short list of 20th-century American plays that continue to have the same power and impact as when they first appeared-57 years after its Broadway premiere, Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire is one of those plays. The story famously recounts how the faded and promiscuous Blanche DuBois is pushed over the edge by her sexy and brutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Streetcar launched the careers of Marlon Brando, Jessica Tandy, Kim Hunter, and Karl Malden, and solidified the position of Tennessee Williams as one of the most important young playwrights of his generation, as well as that of Elia Kazan as the greatest American stage director of the ’40s and ’50s.
