THE QUEEN OF ROMANCE FICTION, A HOLLYWOOD ICON OF THE 1920s Elinor Glyn was an English author, journalist and screen writer and best known for Three Weeks (1907) a steamy romance novel which was shocking for its time.

Her vibrant romances dealt with aristocracy and issues of morality in society. She popularized the concept of the It-girl and had tremendous influence on early 20th-century popular culture and, possibly, on the careers of notable Hollywood stars such as Rudolph Valentino, Gloria Swanson and, especially, Clara Bow.This large collection contains 168 items dating from 1902 to 2009, specifically, 60 Ephemera and archives, 103 Books and 5 Books about Elinor Glyn and related material. 60 Ephemera and archives:• Autograph page from a guest book signed by Glyn, Margot Glyn (her daughter), and others, 1-3 August 1912.• "The… Read More
