TOD BROWNING PHOTOPLAY EDITION
Noticed mixed in with a group of "Photoplay" books for sale is a copy of the somewhat rare title: The Mockingbird: An Underworld Story of the London Limehouse District (filmed as THE BLACKBIRD and released in 1926). What makes this particular title distinctive from the others is the author (and director of the film) -- Tod Browning, and the shot of Lon Chaney Sr. on the cover (seen in a previous "Smokin' Monsters" post here at MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD).
The softcover book was published ca. 1925 by New York Jacobsen-Hodgkinson.
