Product description

Red/maroon cloth boards show some signs of handling and shelf stress, but are otherwise in good condition with no chips or tears. Gilt titling to spine. Front board bears a sticker indicating that this was once part of the Boots Borrowers Library ( for more history of this see http://usvsth3m.com/post/did-you-know-that-until-the-1960s-boots-the-chemist-was-also-a-library). The only other evidence of this internally is the paste remains of where the library slip has been removed from the rear pastedown. Front free endpaper bears an ink inscription. Pages are largely clean and bright, with negligible foxing or other markings. The binding is generally secure with no loose leaves. This is an excellent reference work on early cinema at the dawn of the talkies written by one the first commentator's of note on the subject. Ideal for reader and collectors alike. Listed by volunteer Morgan F.
