Hardcover. First edition. Introduction by Percy Hammond. Tiny ownership signature, and the foredge is foxed, else near fine in fine dustwrapper with a tiny hole on the spine, little larger than a pinprick. The play was written specifically for Helen Hayes, who starred in the Broadway production and is the dedicatee of the book. Basis for the 1929 Sam Taylor-directed film. Mary Pickford bought the film rights to the play and took over Hayes' part in her first talking role, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress, in the second year of the award's existence.
