About this Item: Brentano's Ltd, London, 1926. Original Blue Cloth Hardback. Condition: Very Good. 1926. First UK edition, limited to 1,000 copies. SIGNED by the author. All edges gilt. 217pp.a frontispiece, 7 other full page black and white illustrations and other illustrations within the text. Anita Loos (1889-1981) was an American screenwriter, playwright and author. She wrote film scripts from 1912, and became arguably the first-ever staff scriptwriter, when D.W. Griffith put her on the payroll at Triangle Film Corporation. She went on to write many of the Douglas Fairbanks films, as well as the stage adaptation of Colette’s Gigi. She is probably best known for her comic novel 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes', which began as a series of short sketches published in Harper's Bazaar, Known as the "Lorelei" stories, they were satires on the state of sexual relations that only vaguely alluded to sexual intimacy; the magazine's circulation quadrupled overnight. The heroine of the stories, Lorelei Lee, was a bold, ambitious flapper, who was much more concerned with collecting expensive baubles from her conquests than any marriage licenses, in addition to being a shrewd woman of loose morals and high self-esteem. She was a practical young woman who had internalized the materialism of the United States in the 1920s and therefore equated culture with cold cash and tangible assets. It was first published in book form in the United Sates in November 1925. For sale is the first UK edition from 1926, in an unnumbered edition of 1,000 copies, each signed by the author. The book is bound in the original blue cloth covered boards with gold titling and a gold illustration on the front board and worn gold titling on the spine. The case of the book is in very good condition with shelf wear and some small stains and light soiling on the boards. The corners are very lightly bumped with a little wear to the cloth and the spine ends are bumped with a little loss of colour to the cloth on the corner tips. The titling on the spine is worn or faded and is now indistinct. The contents are tight and clean with browning to the endpapers. It has been signed by Anita Loos on the reverse of the title page and a previous owner's name is written on the front free endpaper. A production fault has caused some slight diagonal creasing on page 117 (not the result of damage after purchase). Size: 8.5'' Tall First UK Edition - Limited to 1,000 Copi. Signed by the author.

In the early 1960s William Roberts put his memories of the restaurant down on canvas in his painting The Vorticists at the Restaurant de la Tour Eiffel: Spring, 1915 (held in the Tate Gallery collection), which depicts Stulik in the company of his illustrious patrons, among them Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis and Cuthbert Hamilton. Roberts said of Stulik's restaurant: "In my memory la cuisine française and Vorticism are indissolubly linked" (The Listener, 21 March 1957). Gentlemen Prefer Blondes was first published in the US the preceding year. Seller Inventory # 124271
