First edition, first printing. “An opera book without libretto or score, which nevertheless portrays the tragedy of unrequited love, the peril of fame, the intrigue of backstage life, the nefarious schemings of the very rich, and a profound moral” (jacket flap).

Small oblong quarto. Original black, blue, and white pictorial boards designed by Gorey. With the dust jacket. Illustrations throughout by Edward Gorey. Corners and ends of spine lightly rubbed in the dust jacket with a touch of wear to extremities, mild toning to spine. A very good copy.
