The Devil and the Good Lord and Two Other Plays. Jean-Paul Sartre.

The Devil and the Good Lord and Two Other Plays

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., 1960. First American Edition, 1st Printing.

Octavo (8 1/4 x 5 1/8 inches; 217x130 mm), 438, [2] pages in gray cloth, gilt titles to spine, in an unclipped, illustrated dust jacket.

The uncommon hardcover edition of these three plays, all translated from the French. The title play concerns the Peasants' Revolt and the Reformation, while "Kean" is an adaptation of Alexandre Dumas's play about British actor Edmund Kean, and "Nekrassov" is a farce about the anti-communist press. Kitty Black translated the first two plays, and Sylvia and George Leeson translated "Nekrassov." Paul Rand designed the dust jacket.

CONDITION: Some rubbing to cloth. Internally, heavy offsetting from a newspaper clipping to the front end papers but otherwise, tight, clean, and unmarked. The unclipped dust jacket has some soiling to the panels, small nicks to the bottom of the spine, a few small chips to the top of the lower panel, creasing to lower flap, and fading to the spine. Very Good overall. Item #2187
