South Pacific [Signed, Numbered]

Notes: A retelling, by Michener, of scenes from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific, which was based on Michener's book Tales of the South Pacific. Really, for a kids book, that's a bit meta, don't you think? Illustrated in full color by Michael Hague.

This is one of 250 numbered copies, signed by both Michener and Hague. Issued in green cloth and a slipcase covered in undyed cotton fabric.

Tales of the South Pacific, the book, won the Pulitzer Prize. South Pacific the musical won ten Tony awards. South Pacific the film won an Oscar. South Pacific, the ocean, is where you can find Vanuatu, the island where all of these stories take place.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a slipcase that is slightly grubby, as usual, given that it seems specially designed to attract fingerprints and dust.

Publication: New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1992.
