New York: William Morrow, 1982. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Textual photographs. New York: William Morrow, 1982. First edition. Intimate biography written by close friends of the actress. Before Marilyn Monroe, Mae West (1892-1980) was Hollywood's preeminent blond bombshell. A performer since childhood, she wrote her own comedic material and built up an act made up of open sexuality and clever double entendres. Never far from controversy, West would take the film industry by storm during the 1930s with a series of racy comedies that included such classics as She Done Him Wrong (1933) and I'm No Angel (1933). Signed by both Eells and Musgrove on the front flyleaf. Octavo. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. (Inventory #: 64362)
