PREVIEWING TOP HAT (1935) Promotional Book
Racine, Wisconsin: Whitman Publishing Company, 1935. Small folio, 13 x 9 ½” (33 x 24 cm.), 32 pp.. Slight wear to edges of front wrappers, book shows a slight bend at top right, near fine.
A remarkable promotional book for TOP HAT, the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musical, directed by George Stevens, which is generally considered their finest film. This handsomely printed book contains many pages illustrating the film’s elaborate dance numbers. OCLC does not record a single known copy, and I have never seen this book before.
