Edition: First Photoplay Edition
Blackmore, R. D. LORNA DOONE (The Madge Bellamy Photoplay Edition). Springfield, Mass.: Milton Bradley, 1921. First Edition Thus. A VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE example of one of the most attractive photoplays from the silent era, produced by game-maker Milton Bradley in an unusual early diversification; this was the only photoplay they produced. The pictorial onlay illustration featuring actress Madge Bellamy shows only the faintest trace of rub as does the volume itself. This is rarely the case as the very size of the book usually left it vulnerable to handling and shelf-abuse. Hinges perfectly intact, no previous ownership marks. Lovely B & W Action-Adventure endpapers. Color illustrations by Harold Brett. Many full-page duotone illustrations from the film itself. The spine gilt is a trifle dull but that is the extent of the book's downside. Lorna Doone of course is one of the greatest literary classics of 19th Century English Lit and the true 3-volume first edition is one of the rarest collectible books in the world; this is an appealing example of the title. Housed in a one-of-a-kind custom cloth slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 001405
