A drama (based on Fritz Lang's Metropolis) which was first performed at the Strand in London in 1928. Limited issue of just 25 copies - this is number 24. Inscribed by Pemebrton-Billing to a named recipient on the limitation page. Undated (circa 1929) ix, , 76 pp. Padding maroon morocco boards, gilt titles; top edge gilt, deckled page-edges, marbled endpapers. Unfortunately, the front panel has become detached and the spine-ends are a little frayed. Contents are clean and tight with some sporadic, albeit light foxing to page-edges and early and latter matter. A decent binding or reference copy. Rare.
