New York: Harcourt, Brace, and Jovanovich, 1971. First Edition. INSCRIBED by director Kubrick on the front endpaper: "To -- / Best wishes / Stanley Kubrick." A touch of faint dampstaining to the top page edges and endpapers, else a bright, unread copy. One of the best assessments of Kubrick's career, focusing on the films made through 1971. photo illustrated throughout. A rare signature from one of the greatest and most reclusive twentieth century cinema auteurs.
