Death of a Salesman: Certain private conversations in two acts and a requiem.

Notes: One of the great American plays, winner of the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for best play.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing, with no later printings noted). In the correct first printing dust jacket, with no New York Drama Critics Circle award mention. A near fine copy in a very good or better dust jacket with light wear at the edges and a short tear at one flap fold.

If you read the Internet, you will find a lot of bogus information about identifying the first edition of this book. But it is not actually hard. DOAS follows the usual conventions for Viking Press Books (with the statement "First published..." on the copyright page and no later printings noted). There is only one correct dust jacket, with a $2.50 price at the top of the front flap. All the stuff about orange boards, broken type on page 11; American Book-Stratford Press on the copyright page; Miller's photo on the back flap of the jacket; and the second S in salesman touching the arm of the figure on the front panel of the jacket are distractions. ALL first printings have them. Anyone who says they have a first printing but without those elements is either wrong or lying.

Publication: New York: The Viking Press, 1949.
