Dime Novels: or, Following an Old Trail in Popular Literature.
Boston: Little, Brown, and Company,, 1929. Octavo. Original tan diapered cloth, title in black to spine and upper board. ; Frontispiece and 15 other plates. A little toning of the text, else a very sharp copy. First edition, with the extremely stylish Paul Iribe-designed phoenix and sun-disc bookplate of the film-maker Cecil B. de Mille. Iribe went out to Hollywood in 1915, and worked as designer on numerous movies, becoming in time "a valued member of de Mille's staff" (Birchard, Cecil B. de Mille's Hollywood), most famously creating the fantastical Egypt for the 1923 Ten Commandments.
