    UFA Exhibitor Book (UFA, 1925-1926). Exhibitor Book (180 Pages, 9" X 12").
    This 1925-1926 season UFA exhibitor book is the most amazing book of its kind we've ever seen. From the fabric covered slats with hand-hewn bone and ribbon clasps opening up to beautiful portraits drawn in simple black line on shimmering gold paper to, 180 pages later, a 16" X 20" fold-out poster with photos of the 17 top UFA directors (F. W. Murnau, Alexander Korda, Fritz Lang, etc.). This is simply a momentous journey through a complete film season. Other highlights include: 16 different 5.5" X 7.5" photos tipped in on backing boards covered in gold linen fabric "frames." Some of the stars included are Gloria Swanson, Lil Dagover, Mae Murray, Lya de Putti, and Pola Negri. There are multi-colored sepia toned pages, with up to 10 photos to a page, of all the top stars and films for this season (Murnau's Faust, a 3 page spread on Metropolis, a 2 page spread on Lost World, Emil Janning's Tartuff and Variete, Lya de Putti's Manon Lescaut, Larry Semon films, six pages of Harold Lloyd's Why Worry, Girl Shy, and Hot Water, a Felix the Cat page, Gloria Swanson's Madame Sans-Gene, Rin-Tin-Tin, Pola Negri films, Lon Chaney's He Who Gets Slapped, Buster Keaton's The Navigator and Seven Chances and on and on). Along with the hundreds of photos, there is page after page of incredible artwork, many signed in the plate, by the top German and European artists of the day (Kupfer Sachs, Theo Matejko, Wolfgang Ortmann, Fritz Weber, etc.) There are pages of photos of not just UFA stars and directors but also those of Warner Brothers, First National, Famous Players Lasky (Rodolfo Valentino, etc). If you've ever considered owning one of the most special items to come out of the silent era, this is it. There are amazingly few condition issues, just a small paper lift on page 128, some minor edge wear, and a toning of the middle of the page between the cover slats. Very Fine.
