Superb vintage leather-bound autograph album, approximately 6 x 4.75, 1930s, containing more than 60 ink signatures, nearly all single-sided, a minority with personalized inscriptions (many of which could easily be matted out). Represented: Ralph Bellamy, Reginald Denny, Adrianne Ames, Robert Montgomery, Robert Young, Carl Laemmle, Jr., Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., Walter Wanger, Shirley Temple, Tyrone Power, June Lang, Don Ameche, Rochelle Hudson, Simone Simon, Loretta Young, Claire Trevor, Cesar Romero, Tony Martin, Warner Baxter, Marjorie Weaver, Sonja Henie, Alice Faye, Joan Bennett, Mary Pickford, William Gargan, Alice Brady, Barbara Read, Minna Gombell, Deanna Durbin, Charles J. Winninger, John King, Gail Patrick, Wayne Morris, Hobart Cavanaugh, Ronald Reagan, Olivia DeHavilland, Constance Bennett, Walter Connolly, Allan Jones, Hugh Herbert, Henry O’Neill, Dick Foran, Lola Lane, Kay Francis, Isabel Jeans, Kay Johnson, Edward G. Robinson, Anna May Wong, Mabel Todd, Helen Mack, Dixie Lee Crosby, Grace Bradley Boyd, Andy Devine, Shirley Ross, Edmund Lowe, Wynne Gibson, Bing Crosby, Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy (with Charlie sketch), and Errol Flynn. In addition to the variety of the signatures represented, the album’s pages are especially notable for their startlingly fresh appearance. In contrast to typical albums of the period, almost invariably made of low-quality stock susceptible to toning, this album (apart from mild wear to the covers) bears no such evidence of its age—indeed, the bright, spotless pages even retain the subtle gloss original to their manufacture. Apart from a few scattered brushes, the album is in very fine condition, the great majority of the signatures dark, bold, and—dare we say—perfect. R&R COA.
