This set of music (with dialog/stage guide) is in pristine condition. Doesn't look like it was ever used, from 1927 to the present - cover is not frayed in the slightest and it still has that "new book" feel to it. The music was written by Richard Kountz and the text by Edmund Spear Hunt, with the stage guide by Adelina Patti Fulton. It was printed by M. Witmark & Sons, 1650 Broadway, New York. It tells the story of the first day's journey by camel train across the Arabian desert. Lovely antiquated English turns of phrase in common usage in the 1920's. It also has "Reference Copy" stamped in blue on the bottom of the front cover, so I would assume it has spent at least part of its' life tucked away in some dusty corner of a public library. A treasure for a collector or a local theater company looking to mount an original historic production.
