Description

Markey. Gene. The Road to Rouen, New York: The John Day Company, [1930]. First edition, signed and inscribed “For Helen Clark—from her friend Gene Markey,” in green ink to Markey’s Hollywood beautician friend, Helen Clark (whose specialty was scalp stimulation), with a self-caricature of the sometime caricaturist and screenwriter Markey showing his need for Clark’s treatment. The drawing is red and green with the legend: “From a 1931 Photo.” Obviously, Markey was having some fun with Clark over the projected success of her treatment on him. Dust jacket price clipped and with repaired spine. Black embossed cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover.
