    Description

    Gaumont British (1935). Exhibitor's Book (11.5" x 16.75") (40 pp.). A real find. This is a country-of-origin 40 page Exhibitor's Book from Gaumont British for one of their best years. Hitchcock fans take note: where else will you find full incredible color spreads on BOTH "Secret Agent" and "39 Steps"!! The beautiful embossed cover of this 40 page gem is the work of famed British artist Roy Carnon. Some of the other stunners are a scintillating Fay Wray in "Clairvoyant", and a very rare image in grand portraiture of Boris Karloff in "Dr. Nikola". An incredibly interesting spread. Is it for the "Black Cat" on Karloff's shoulder? Or is it his character based on Dr. Nikola Tesla, 'patron saint of modern electricity', that became the basis for his character in "The Invisible Ray"?. There is some staining on the front and back covers, some edge wear on the cover, and some minor tears on the bottom of one page and the upper back cover. There are scratches on the cover. Fine/Very Fine.
