Four Miniature Flip Books, Each Featuring A Star
HOLLYWOOD. Hollywood Motion Picture Flip Books. [Film Star Movie Books] [featuring] Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Marion Davies, and Marie Dressler. New York: Moviebook Corporation , 1932.
Four miniature flip books, all in original wrappers, each featuring a movie star and her biography. The stars included in this set are Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Marion Davies, and Marie Dressler. (2 7/16 x 1 13/16 inches; 62 x 46 mm). Covers with a portrait of the star and twenty-four pages of photos from a movie scene which creates a flip book effect. The biography is printed under each picture.

Printed on stiff photo paper in black and white.. Some browning and wear. A chip to the top of Joan Crawford. A brown stain to covers of Crawford and Harlow, which both bleed through a few pages (only the stain on Crawford is affecting the photo). A bit dusty. Overall very good.

The back page states "Send 10c for each book desired or $1.00 for complete set of 12." Other stars that were available were Norma Shearer, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, John Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore, Robert Montgomery, Wallace Beery and Ramon Navarro.
