The copy has a charming original drawing in ink by Gershwin of a man taking a bow. The inscription, which surrounds the drawing reads "For Harold Arlen, So what? Ira Gershwin" and is dated 3/26/34. A wonderful association piece between one of the finest American lyricists and one of the best American songwriters (Over the Rainbow, It's Only a Paper Moon, That Old Black Magic) of all time.
The Broadway musical Let 'Em Eat Cake opened in New York October 21, 1933 with music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin.BKS-12659$400
