[moderately shelfworn, light soiling to page edges, some moisture-damage to ffep which has caused it to partially stick to the front pastedown, but this has NO effect on the body or text of the book itself; the jacket is heavily worn at most edges, with a couple of tape-repaired tears]. (sepia-tone photographs) A 704-page alphabetical listing of 23,000 American films produced from July 1908 (the date of the first film directed by D.W. Griffith) through December 1915, with credits and cast. Although as a source for feature film credits, this volume and its followup (1916-1920) have subsequently been largely superseded by the AFI Catalog for that decade, it remains to my knowledge the largest compilation of credits data for short films and serials of the period, and as such an invaluable reference work for students of what the authors call "the unknown years of the American cinema." An introductory section includes brief histories of 135 film production companies of the period, and the book is illustrated with 116 full-page portraits of actors, directors and screenwriters.
