Portrait 4to. n.d. [1973] Blue cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Edges very slightly faded. In fine, but slightly soiled dust jacket, somewhat sunned to spine. INSCRIBED and dated by author/photographer: ‘For Roy [Moseley], with pleasant memories and all good wishes from the author, Arnold – April 22, 1974’. Illustrated with almost 1500 photographs, 642 of which are in full color.

The comments are printed on blue paper with tipped-in col. photographs. *** L. Arnold Weissberger (1907-1981) was an American theatrical lawyer who represented many prominent artists and theatrical personalities, many of whom he could call his friends. Famous Faces is a collection of his personal photographs of the rich and famous he associated with. *** Our copy is inscribed to Roy Roy Moseley who for some time was a U.K. press agent for various well-known stars of the day – among them, Ava Gardner, Anthony Perkins and Bette Davis. He wrote several books about (his life with) films stars, including Bette Davis: An Intimate Memoir. Weissberger and Moseley would certainly have known each other at the time. *** This is a very heavy book (almost 3KG); additional postage may be necessary.
