Title: Ivan the Terrible. A Screenplay. Translated from the Russian by Ivor Montagu and Herbert Marshall. Edited, with appendices and illustrations by Ivor Montagu.
Description: Secker & Warburg, London, 1963. Hardcover. ISBN: 0252004787. The first UK edition, printed from the US sheets. 8vo. 319pp. Red cloth lettered in silver at spine and with the publisher's red stain to the top edge. Illustrated with stills from the finished movie. Corner tips very slightly rubbed and with some very light browning to the free endpapers. Very good indeed. No dust wrapper. The full screenplay to Eisenstein's celebrated historical epic, the first part released in 1944 to considerable acclaim, but the second part (in fact the middle part as Eisenstein subsequently deemed it a trilogy), whilst completed in 1946, not issued until 1958 as Stalin (who commissioned the project) was incensed over the depiction of Ivan IV and subsequently banned it. Very Good/No Jacket.
