INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY STEPHEN SONDHEIM. Complex musical about Commodore Mathew Perry's 1853 expedition to Japan. Although it only ran for 193 performances during its original run, it received many Tony nominations and is a cult favorite among Sondheim fans. 18pgs. of photos + an Al Hirschfeld drawing opposite the title page. Inscribed copies of this title are scarce indeed. Minor soiling to the white back panel of the dustjacket. Fine/near fine. Laid in is a playbill for the recent smash revival of Gypsy that has Patti LuPone in the lead.
