Three Books from Charlie Chaplin's Personal Library: The Dark Mother; The Other Man's Wife; If Winter Comes
Boni and Liveright / Mitchell Kennerley / Little, Brown and Company. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Signed by author. No jackets. The Dark Mother: Hinges shaken, light edge wear; The Other Man's Wife: Front hinge a bit shaken, bookstore stamp on front endpaper; If Winter Comes: Front cover corner stained. Three novels formerly owned by the American silent film star Charlie Chaplin. The Dark Mother is a presentation copy inscribed & signed by Waldo Frank. All three books bear Chaplin's personal bookplate that reads 'Charles Chaplin, His Book' with an image of a man leading a dog on a leash, with a large city in the background. Included with the books is a type-written, signed letter from the previous owner explaining that her mother, Aida, who was good friends with Chaplin's first wife Lita Grey, was allowed to borrow these in the twenties when the couple was still married. Aida later acted as a witness at the divorce proceedings, and due to Lita's relocation to Chicago was never able to successfully return them. I stand behind the authenticity of these with a full money-back guarantee (no time limit). Images and additional information available upon request. THE DARK MOTHER: Boni and Liveright, New York, 1920. First edition. v, 376 pp. 7 5/8 x 5 1/4. Inscribed 'To Charlie Chaplin / With all sorts of things / that needn't be said / Waldo Frank / New York 1921'.
