BELL JAR, THE (1979) Press kit


Sylvia Plath (source) Vintage original press kit, USA. Los Angeles: AVCO Embassy Pictures, 1979. Ca. 100+ leaves. Quarto. Nineteen separate mechanically reproduced typescripts, ranging from 1 to 11 leaves each, most stapled, printed on rectos only. Accompanied by twenty-two (22) 8 x 10″ borderless black-and-white stills, with captions. Enclosed in over-size printed studio folder (a bit rubbed and with fraying along the extended top edges). FINE in VERY GOOD- folder.

An extensive studio press kit promoting the 1979 film adaptation of Plath’s semi-autobiographical novel, based on a screenplay by Marjorie Kellogg, directed by Larry Peerce, and starring Marilyn Hassett, Julie Harris, Robert Klein, et al. The releases include extensive productions notes, a synopsis, biographical material, notes on Plath and the book, etc. This is a very scarce book, the only one which I have ever encountered.
