Stated first Canadian edition. Book appears gently read, interior is clean and tight. Bright gilt star blind stamped to front red board, bright gilt titles to spine. Laid in is a printed card, with envelope, stating, "With the Compliments of Jack L. Warner". Spine is ever so slightly cocked. The paper along the gutter from the front pastedown has pulled loose in small pieces, the board is unaffected and still firmly attached. Moisture "crinkle" to page following the title page. Unclipped dustjacket is rubbed, lightly chipped to extremities, short tear to the fold of the rear panel flap. Now protected in brodart cover. Overall a nice collectable copy regarding one of Hollywoods founding fathers.
