Product description

My Fair Lady: a musical play in two acts - Alan Jay Lerner (Penguin Books, 1959)
 
A very good original copy of the first Penguin edition of the libretto and lyrics of the 1956 musical by Lerner and Frederick Loewe, with cover design and photographs by Cecil Beaton.
 
Although the book shows some signs of age (see condition description below), it remains in very good condition overall for a volume of this variety and vintage (indeed, the firmness of the binding suggests that it may never have been read), and would thus make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage Penguins - or a great display accessory for a late 1950s period room setting.
