1 Browning, Tod (based on the motion picture story by) The Mocking Bird: An Underworld Story of the London Limehouse District
New York Jacobsen-Hodgkinson Corporation (c.1925) NO First Edition Softcover Fair 
[worn copy, rear cover detached, pages browned and somewhat brittle, chipping/flaking at corners, creasing to covers, etc.]. (Popular Plays and Screen Library) Series (B&W photographs) Novelization of the 1926 MGM film THE BLACKBIRD starring Lon Chaney, Renée Adorée and Owen Moore, and directed by Tod Browning. (The book, bearing a 1925 copyright date, seems to have been issued prior to the release of the film itself -- which obviously had an 11th-hour title change -- in January 1926.) The three photographic plates in the book itself are full-page portrait shots of Adorée, Moore, and Tod Browning -- the only example I've seen where a film's director was thus featured. Chaney himself is depicted on the front cover and in a minature portrait gallery on the rear cover, with six small shots of some of his memorable screen characters, including the Phantom of the Opera and the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Not in fantastic condition, but extremely uncommon. It's unfortunate for today's collectors that many of the tie-in books for Chaney's MGM films were issued in these ultra-cheap, non-durable Jacobsen paperbacks, instead of as Grosset & Dunlap or A.L. Burt hardcovers.
