  • Broadway: A Novel [Photoplay] by Dunning, Philip and George Abbott
    Dunning, Philip and George Abbott
    Broadway: A Novel [Photoplay]

    First Edition

    New York: George H. Doran, (1927). 288 pages. A novel of bootlegging, murder, and show business, adapted from the authors' play of the same name. The film was Universal's first talking picture with Technicolor sequences.

    This is a bibliographically complex book. The book itself is the first printing by Doran, with one still opposite page 234. The jacket is the Grosset and Dunlap jacket for the photoplay. It appears that G&D must have used some of the original publisher's books to supplement their own printing. Quite uncommon in this mixed issue. ISBN: 281AIB1045130.

    First edition (first printing). Very good in a good to very good dust jacket missing a good-sized chip at the base of the spine.
