Mega rare 1962 First Edition of the classic play.  Ex-library copy in acceptable condition.  Dust jacket is poor, contains stains, tape, and tears in several places with a chunk missing from lower spine area. 

Book itself is structurally sound.  Some soiling to cover and wear to corners.  Pages have stains to margins of varying degrees throughout, as pictured, with dark stain on edges of a few pages in the 60's [see last photo]   Library stamp on outer page edges. 

When the draft selects rock star Conrad Birdie, his fans are devastated, but none more than struggling songwriter Albert Peterson whose song Birdie was just about to record. Albert's longtime girlfriend, Rosie, pushes Albert to write a new tune that Birdie will perform on television to a fan selected in a contest. The scheme works, with young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee  declared the winner, but no one has counted on the jealous wrath of her boyfriend.
