Fleet, New York, 1965, Stated First Printing. Boldly SIGNED and dated "Artie Shaw, 3/28/90" at the ffep. Three novellas by the great clarinetist and band leader examine the perils of married life, an area of life with which he was very familiar. Shaw was an avid reader and admirer of the writing life, and in 1952 had published, The Trouble With Cinderella, a witty, eccentric and obsessively candid memoir, essentially an extended meditation on his love-hate relationship with fame. In black cloth boards, hint of toning to page edges, otherwise about fine, tight, unmarked. In a near fine, unclipped dust jacket, with original price of $4.50 to front flap, slightly soiled, lightly rubbed at the fore and hinge edges. Very uncommon signed first printing, even with a later than publication date signature. J1203
