Laid in, as a bunch of bonuses, are an undated photograph of Hirschfeld, possibly signed "Al Hirschfeld" on the reverse (not his characteristic all caps signature, so may have been the collector's notation), a special issue of Playbill dated June 23, 2003, on the occasion of the rededication of Martin Beck as the Al Hirschfeld, and a reprint of an advertisement for the book. Hard cover binding is in Fine condition; dust jacket is near-Fine, with a rough top edge, tiny nick to bottom front edge, and wear to spine head.
