Stockholm, Albert Bonniers förlag, 1936. 8vo. 132 pp.
Recent patterned boards, wrappers bound in (somewhat soiled), entirely uncut.
A very interesting copy of this play, with corrections and additons in pencil by the author (included in later editions), and a gift inscription to Danish actress and theater director Bodil Ipsen (1889-1964).
Also with a 2-page handwritten card to antiquarin bookseller Gösta Janson, in which Lagerkvist claims not to remember sending the book to Ipsen, whom he however had admired while living in Denmark (50 years earlier). He does not remember the annotations, but assumes they are his if in Swedish and in his handwriting (and they are).
The handwritten corrections are no later than 1946, when they werre carried out in a new edition of the play.
