A play [copy typescript].No place: no publisher, no date [c.1974] Stock Code: 142221
NotesInscribed by the author in blue pen at the head of the title "To Nic Roeg from Harold Pinter!" An excellent association: Roeg was Director of Photography on Clive Donner's 1963 film of The Caretaker, Pinter's first big critical and commercial success, still his most popular and frequently performed play.
Someone has sketched a pencilled route map for Roeg on the front wrapper, showing the way from 2935 Beachwood to Au Petit Café, a bistro at 1230 North Vine Street in the heart of Hollywood that for almost 20 years (1963-1982) was a film and recording industry hangout.
Folio (280 x 215 mm). Plain blue card wrappers, two metal fasteners.
5 preliminary leaves, including title, and 53 pages, printed on rectos only.
From the library of the film director and cinematographer Nicolas Roeg (1928-2018), with a pencilled note to that effect at the head of the title page by his wife Harriett Roeg. Stain on title page, fasteners rusted, else good.
