About This Item

Classic 1920's pop culture mix, fiction and movies, in a striking jacket.

"Illustrated with Scenes from the photoplay a First National Picture featuring Dorothy Mackaill." Black and white stills from the film, one in duplicate.

Flyleaf bears a Denver newspaper's purple ownership stamp, possibly suggesting a review copy —albeit "Want ads headquarters." Points of jacket rubbed, edges worn, shelf soiling stains along lower edge of boards, but overall a nice example of the type, now under Mylar. See images.

CHICKIE: The story of a young girl, a stenographer, and her experiences with two men-- one a millionaire rounder, the other a poor but honest youth." A sharp copy in red cloth with a colorful dust jacket with catalog on reverse side. Illustrated with scenes from the movie edition directed by John Francis Dillon, featuring the actress Dorothy Mackaill--a film now considered lost. Book is VG or better, jacket has edgewear and chipping but looks pretty good under Mylar.
