1 Lescarboura, Austin C. Behind the Motion-Picture Screen
New York Benjamin Blom, Inc. 1971 NO Reprint Hardcover Near Fine 
(no dust jacket, as issued) [nice copy, with just a bit of soiling to the bottom edge]. (B&W photographs) "How the Scenario Writer, Director, Cameraman, Scene Painter and Carpenter, Laboratory Man, Art Director, Property Man, Electrician, Projector Operator and Others Contribute Their Share of Work Toward the Realization of the Wonderful Photoplays of Today; and How the Motion Picture is Rapidly Extending Into Many Fields Aside from that of Entertainment." Beautifully-produced reissue (even if they did misspell the author's name on the spine) of a work originally issued in 1919. Extensively illustrated with both photographs and diagrams: every other page (all the right-hand pages) contains an illustration or two. Covers an amazingly wide range of topics, but with the stated aim of avoiding overly technical language, in order to serve "the film devotee of a more serious turn of mind who would ask pertinent questions and expect understandable answers concerning what takes place behind the motion-picture screen, and who would be unable or unwilling to turn to the technical volumes with their formidable verbiage."
