Mae West
RARE 1932 1st Edition SIGNED Diamond Lil by MAE WEST - owned by Broadway actor
New York: Diamond Lil by Mae West NEW YORK: The Macauley Company, 1932 In the early years of the Depression and Prohibition, Americans needed a bit of wild escapism and Mae West was just the ticket. This tawdry book followed her 1928 play of the same name and then a film version starring a young Cary Grant entitled, "She Done Him Wrong." This particular copy is signed by the iconic playwright/actress to Blaine Cordner, who began his stage career in the late 1920s and acted in a number of memorable plays including Arsenic and Old Lace. He died in 1971, shortly before he was to appear on stage in a revival of one of his earlier roles. The inscription reads, "To Blaine, Come on in - Mae West" There is no dust jacket but the book is in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Pop's Book Shop (popsbookshop) [Charles Town, West Virginia, US]
