OF THE CATALOG AND APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN A VERY CLOSE FRIEND OF HERS. Very handsome exhibition catalog celebrating the life work of 2 legendary talents of the international musical theatre, Kurt Weill & Lotte Lenya. Inclds. a wide range of written tributes + many photos, drawings & other memorabilia + several color plates. Laid in is a 4pg. checklist of the exhibit which has a few markings in red pencil that was most likely made by Flanner. There is also some red underlining in the catalog itself that also was most likely made by Flanner. Very minute soiling to covers and some light chipping to the spine of the book which has been mended. All in all a very good copy of a fragile catalog and made special by Lenya's uncommon signature.
