Payment Deferred: A Play in a Prologue, Three Acts and an Epilogue

London: Samuel French Limited, 1934.

Price: $200.00

Softcover. First edition. Stiff-wrappers. Owner name on the front wrap, and several lines checked in the margins in red pencil, an about very good copy of this adaptation from C.S. Forester's novel. An acting edition, and the true first. Dell's adaptation was the basis for the Lothar Mendes film featuring Charles Laughton, Maureen O'Sullivan, and Ray Milland (curiously, Forester's novel wasn't even credited). Scarce.
