Title: Memoirs of Napoleon I, Compiled from His Own...

Publisher: Duffield and Company, New York

Publication Date: 1929

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good

Signed: Signed by Author(s)

Description:

Cloth, a little rubbed and bumped at spine tips and corners. From the library of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., decorated naval officer of WWII, and royal of Hollywood's Golden Era, credited in more than 50 films (including the starring role in GUNGA DIN) -- with his bookplate on the front paste-down. It is inscribed to him by his first wife, Joan Crawford, using their newlywed pet-names: "To my Beloved Husband Dodo, Whom I love above life and every living thing. Eternally, Billie." Initially, she found her husband's education and good taste inspiring, but she later recalled: "He mentioned books he'd read and I tried to devour Shaw, Ibsen, Proust and Nietzsche all at once. I read my way to mental indigestion." A nice association copy, linking two cinematic legends. Bookseller Inventory # JC2704
