  7. Carmen.
    signed

    Carmen.

    An Opera in Four Acts. Taken from the story of Prosper Merimée, the original Libretto by H. Meilhac and L. Halévy. New English version.
    First edition thus, number 539 of 650 numbered copies signed by the translators on the limitation page (600 for sale). This was the fruit of Galworthy's long-standing admiration for, some would say obsession, with Carmen. A visit to Bizet's opera furnished the pivotal moment in his 1913 novel The Dark Flower when the unhappily married narrator, Mark finds himself entranced by the seventeen-year-old daughter of an old friend, who at the evening's close presents him with a carnation from her hair, moving him to exclaim "Carmen! Ah! Carmen!". Learn More
