Description:

circa.1940. Photograph (4 x 5 3/4 inch) of a head shot of Maurice Costello (1877-1950). Inscribed by Costello on the back in blue ink: "To Monine--Amoureux, Lendre. Affectiomne. Always Maurice Costello." He was an early star in silent films after a major career in vaudeville where he was known as the 'Dimpled Darling'. His first movie was "Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" (1905) in which he was the first movie actor to portray Holmes. Among his later movies was "A Tale of Two Cities" in 1911 in which he played Sydney A. Carton. This became his most famous role. Domestic disputes and a divorce broke his career. He barely survived the transition to talking films being reduced in stature to playing bit parts and making $12.50 a day. His daughters Helene & Dolores had film careers in the 1920s. When Maurice Costello died in 1950 his estate consisted of a $50 car and $41.55 in the bank. Later image of an early leading star of silent films. Bookseller Inventory #

Dreiser, Theodore:

Used Quantity Available: 1
Seller
Rating
[?]

Book Description Hollywood. [image ca. 1920s, but inscribed in] January 1942., 1942. Original 8 x 10" sepia-toned print. Very good. Likely a publicity portrait, quarter-length right profile, the image showing signs of having been heavily doctored in the negative in the background areas. After a false start in a darker portion of the image, inscribed in black ink by Dreiser in the lower right corner, into the lower margin: "Here's looking at you Helen - with love and admiration from TD Hollywood - Jan - 1942." The image is recorded in the very useful illustrated online calendar of Dreiser photos in the archive at UPenn, and there identified as "1920s, At the Roses, Los Angeles, California." Three letters (two 'v's and an 'o') in the inscription are closed with ink blotches made in the course of the inscription. We presume the recipient of the inscription was a 'Helen' other than Helen Richardson. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 52396

Clemens, Clara, and Alma Gluck:
Published by [Np]. ca. 1916. (1916)
Used Quantity Available: 1
Seller
Rating
[?]

Book Description [Np]. ca. 1916., 1916. Original silver print of formal photographic portrait. 175 x 125mm. Mounted, an evidently extracted from an album amicorum or scrapbook (with another party's photo and inscription on verso). Mount a bit chipped and edge-torn, faint crease on photo otherwise good. Enclosed in oversize half- morocco slipcase. Inscribed twice by Clemens (1874-1962), the sole surviving child of Samuel Clemens. On the photograph itself she has written: "To Miss Howland with the cordial wishes of Clara Clemens." The recipient is further identified by the inscription on the verso from Alma Gluck, the Romanian-born American soprano (accompanied by a clipped portrait photo from a magazine), to "Enid Howland." Additionally, Clemens has inscribed the mount: "Most cordially Yours Clara Clemens Sept. 16th 1916." Clara was, after her father's death, the controversial custodian of his estate and literary rights. She published her biography of him in 1931, along with books on other subjects, and worked at a career in singing, with which this artifact is likely connected. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 67956
