More Information
Tennessee Williams, born 1911 to 1983, is one of America's best known playwrights and produced some very successful plays, many of which were turned into equally successful films. The early titles and the 'obvious' titles are the most valuable and sought after. American first editions precede the English and are of greater value. All of the books listed in this bibliography are of collectable interest and value.
