Description

    MGM Exhibitors Book (MGM, 1929). Exhibitor's Book (9.5" x 12.5"). A favorite of "Campaign Book" collectors for many years due to the 10 pages of incredible art portraits by a master artist of the cinema, Vincentini (Ted Ireland). His renderings of Garbo, Joan Crawford, Lon Chaney, Buster Keaton, Marion Davies, Norma Shearer, and others are the best we've seen. Please note the rarity of a 'Dust Jacket' on this item, certainly one of the only we've seen. It hid and protected one of the most colorful covers done in an artist's watercolor pallette with purples and gold inks as fresh as printed! There is an incredible full page Laurel and Hardy by a young artist named Al Hirschfeld, as well as terrific art by John Held Jr., the definitive 'Roaring Twenties' artist. Other visual goodies include 70 pages with spreads for "Our Gang", "Hallelujah", and "Green Ghost." A loose last page and one other slightly loose. Some foxing on the dust cover and some small tears and some corner edge wear. Very Fine-.
