A movie gossip andhumor magazine edited by Joe W. Farnham who went on to be a founder of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and has the ignominious distinction of being the first academy award winner to die! This rare, elegantly bound run is the dedication copy to the editor’s wife. ULS identifies one repository (NYPL) with holdings but does not include the last issue, making this volume the only known complete run. A rare and unique survival and a wonderful example of the joys of magazine collecting!
