    If you want to study silent film, you'll need this amazing find. A bound collection of all 13 issues of Moving Picture World from Jan-Mar, 1912. This is literally the ground floor of the film industry, when machines and stars were just being developed into a true art form. There are literally hundreds of ads for films that don't exist anymore, from the rare New York Melies' Westerns to the weekly output of Essanay and Vitagraph. Learn about the earliest stars, John Bunny, Maurice Costello, etc. "Motiographs"..."Cameragraphs"..."Excello Flaming Arc Lamps"...it's a concise history of the earliest motion pictures and the equipment that supported them. A real gem for any lover of the silent film. There are hundreds and hundreds of photos from long, lost films, and enough vintage ads to write a small historical encyclopedia. Don't miss this chance to obtain a true cornerstone research book for silent film. An unrestored bound collection of magazines that displays signs of use. May include light edge wear, some loose pages in the reference section in the front, small pencil markings on a few pages, and the back spine. Internally, the issues are in excellent condition. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine/Very Fine.
