Large slim 4to. Publisher's pictorial card covers, stapled, illustrated to both covers in colour with 2 different perforated card dolls of the actress incorporated in each board (unpunched); pp. , printed to one side throughout; with 8 leaves of colour-printed outfits, with tabs, depicting near 50 separate garments; overall a very good, unused, copy with some rubbing and wear to spine and forecorners of covers and a short (15mm) invisibly repaired split to bottom edge of lower cover; internally expertly, and very unobtrusively, strengthened at inner gutter with archival tissue-tape, with some chipping to fore-edges of leaves due to the very vulnerable and friable stock.
Apparently the sole edition of this particular early Hollywood doll book, requiring careful handling. The toy book features a range of clothing, both glamorous and casual, for the famous screen sex symbol Betty Grable.
