Original dust wrapper. Signed by Charlie Chaplin to the front end paper. frontis photograph and further black and white photographs throughout.
The wrapper is clean, but has a little darkening to it. It also has significant chipping with loss to the top edge in several places. A touch of fading to the pink cloth corresponding to the loss. Internally clean and tidy but with a touch of darkening to the pages. Owner’s signature and that of Chaplin to the front end paper. Overall a decent example
A biography of Chaplin, or rather a study of his “screen personality” Chaplin co-operated with Payne in writing the book. Presumably this was why he was willing to sign a copy (so many of the published works about Chaplin were less eulogising). Chaplin left America in 1952 under a cloud of political suspicion, the same year that the book was published.
