Item #5199 Little Caesar. W. R. Burnett.

Little Caesar

New York: Lincoln Mac Veagh | The Dial Press, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Presentation copy inscribed by Burnett to film producer Sam Marx. About Good, lacking the jacket. Blue buckram, bumped at the corners and rubbed at the edges, with yellow ink lettering on the spine and front board. Bound with some reading wear and a slight forward lean, slices to the fore-edge of the first two leaves with the pieces present and seemingly easy to mend, clean otherwise. This is the book that jumpstarted Burnett's career by landing him a screenwriting job in Hollywood. The text itself would be adapted into the 1931 Mervyn LeRoy film starring Edward G. Robinson, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and Glenda Farrell. Good. Item #5199
