Gilt-stamped cloth; rubbed at spine tps and corners, sunned along fore-edge of upper board. 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 on the FFEP by his first wife, Joan Crawford: "To Douglas, my dearest and best pal / 'One of my first works.' / Happy birth-day from your little [illegible] / Billie." ("Billie" was one of Crawford's many nicknames, referring to her character in OUR MODERN MAIDENS.) They wed when Fairbankswas only 19, and Crawford 23. 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 # JC2703
