However he swiftly developed a fully fledged abstracted aesthetic which found a ready audience around the world. Many subsequent photographers cite his books as a key influence on their work.

        Mimeograph typescript, agreement between Katharine Hepburn and RKO Studios , Inc

      1932. 25 pages. "...employ[ing] the Artist to render to the Corporation her exclusive services as an actress, performer or entertainer in connection with the production of a feature length motion picture...[with] a salary of One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) per week..." with an option to employ Katharine Hepburn " connection with the production of two (2) additional feature length motion pictures...", annotations throughout, signed in black ink Katharine Hepburn, and DO Selznick; including two loose pages regarding her salary for "A Bill of Divorcement" with annotations in pencil, dated August 30, 1932, signed in black ink Katharine Hepburn and DO Selznick; together with a typescript copy bound in blue papers with annotations and two loose pages, both with secretarial signatures. Front and back cover very worn, and detached from mimeograph copy, tears and wear on front and back cover on typescript copy. First Contract With Rko Studios For "A Bill Of Divorcement," 1932 RKO had already cast John Barrymore as the father in "A Bill of Divorcement", but the studio was having trouble casting the role of the daughter. Miss Hepburn's agent, Leland Hayward, heard about the trouble and persuaded director George Cukor to watch her test. Cukor was very impressed and was able to convince David Selznick to see it as well. Selznick was equally astounded. In her book, Katharine Hepburn: A Remarkable Woman, author Anne Edwards quotes a conversation between Selznick and screenwriter Adela Rogers St. John: "She's too marvelous...she'll be greater than Garbo. Nobody wants her but me so come and help me fight for her..." (p.79). In July of 1932, Miss Hepburn and her close friend Laura Harding took the train from New York to California, calling it their "Hollywood Adventure." Edwards writes of Miss Hepburn's arrival to the RKO lot: "Adela Rogers St. John recalled, 'As long as I live I will never forget the first day she appeared on the lot. Everybody was in the commissary at lunch when she walked in with Mr. Cukor. Several executives nearly fainted. Mr. Selznick swallowed a chicken wing whole. We beheld a tall, skinny girl entirely covered with freckles and wearing the most appalling and incredible clothes...' "(p.85-86). As always, Miss Hepburn made an entrance with a lasting impression.

        Louder and Funnier

It would be normal for the first issue to be gilt and there must be an issue with silver lettering which perhaps oxidises to green .All the wrappers I have seen have books with green lettering so if nothing more I feel that it was the more common [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
