1 WINSLOW, THYRA SAMTER Show Business
New York Knopf 1926 
First Edition. Signed presentation copy inscribed by the author, to Ziegfeld Follies promoter Florenz Ziegfeld and his wife, actress Billie Burke, inscribed: “For Billie Burke and Florenz Ziegfeld. With best regards of Thyra Samter Winslow. March 1926.” From the library of Harpo Marx, the great clown of the Marx Brothers comedy team, and his wife actress Susan Fleming Marx, former member of the Ziegfeld Follies and star of early talking films like Million Dollar Legs with W.C. Fields. With a charming bookplate illustrated by Susan Marx with a drawing of Harpo in his comic character which reads: “FROM THE LIBRARY OF HARPO & SUSAN MARX.” Billie Burke is best remembered for her role of Glinda the Good Witch in the classic film The Wizard of Oz. Very good with some light shelfwear and dust soiling in a used dust jacket chipped at the extremities. The book is a novel of Broadway theatrical life with much reference to Florenz Ziegfeld.
