Wallis and Edward: Letters, 1931-1937: the Intimate Correspondence of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Bloch, Michael (Ed)
5 Bloch, Michael (Ed) Wallis and Edward: Letters, 1931-1937: the Intimate Correspondence of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor
NY Summit Books 1986 0671612093 / 9780671612092 First Printing Hard Cover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. Hardcover with unclipped ($19.95) dust jacket. 8vo (6.5 x 9.5). 367 pp. Quarter bound in publisher's Royal Blue cloth over cream boards, gilt lettering on spine. Endpapers decorated with photographs of letters. Illustrated with 32 pages of B&W photographs. This book offers a glimpse inside the romance of Edward VII, the Duke of Windsor, and his beloved American paramour, Wallis Simpson. At the heart of this volume are the extraordinary letters exchanged by the lovers themselves, from their improbable first meeting in 1931 - Wallis socially obscure, Edward then Prince of Wales - till the moment they married at the Chateau de Cande in 1937. Perhaps the most romantic documents of our time, they chart the course of Edward's overwhelming passion for Wallis. Not only do these letters provide a fascinating account of Wallis's developing relationship with the man born to be King, but they also provide a striking view of life in London between the wars. The letters are most revealing, and created quite a sensation when they were published in 1986; disclosing, as they do, previously unknown aspects of Edward's character. . The volume is in excellent condition, unmarked, tight, square and clean. Remainder mark on bottom edge. Unclipped dust jacket shows only mild wear. NEAR FINE/VERY GOOD+. . Photographs. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 367 pp

Hart was a silent film actor, screenwriter, director, and producer. A successful Shakespearian actor on Broadway, he became one of the first Western motion picture stars. He appeared in Sidney Olcott's 1907 production of Ben Hur and, in 1914, he starred in his first feature, The Bargain. Hart was interested in making realistic Westerns--noted in his films for their authenticity of costumes and props. In effect, he was fascinated by the Old West. He acquired Billy the Kid's six-shooter and was a friend of both Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. From 1914 till 1926 he was the leading western actor for silent films. In 1925, he starred in his last film, "Tumbleweeds." This is the 92nd book in the Lakeside Classics series, published annually at Christmas by R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company since 1903. .
