(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $2,748.90 (includes buyer's premium)


Mae West’s personal check ledger containing over 250 checks signed by West, dated from February 16, 1935, to June 6, 1935. Each check is affixed beside its corresponding record-keeping slip, with some of the checks blank or canceled with the signature torn off (not included in the above count). Among the recipients are: William Morris Agency; Hollywood Enterprises; Theatrical Newspaper; Ravenswood Apartments, where she lived from 1932 to 1980; John West, Jr.; President’s Birthday Ball Committee; James A. Timony, her manager; Paramount Productions; Larry Lee, her secretary; assistants Henry and Daisy Jones; Beverly Baikoff, her sister; Screen Actors Guild; and Max Factor & Company. In overall very good to fine condition, with a few pages detached from binding and general expected check wear. An entirely unique, comprehensive collection offering insight into West’s activities during the most productive period of her career.
