Abbe, Dorothy. New York, Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1970. 
English, First Edition, Very Good, Hard Cover, Folio, 11 ⅛” x 14,” 232 pp.

Black woven cloth over boards, gilt stamped image to front, gilt stamped titling to spine, black endpapers, in publisher’s clear plastic wrap, red and white text to front of wrap. Mild soiling to some pages from image transfer, mild wear to front, a few small markings throughout, otherwise tightly bound, clean, and excellent. 232 pp. White laid in loose ephemera “business reply mail” from the publisher. Replete with full-color and black-and-white images throughout. A look at William Addison Dwiggins’ Experimental Theatre including his working space, the stage set ups, and most importantly, the marionettes. From the foreword: “His theater was 'experimental' in the sense that his interest lay not particularly in marionettes, but in the mechanical and artistic problems involved in making them…he brought to the new undertaking his customary perfection of execution which made an art of his unique conception of marionettes.”
