    Edgar Rice Burroughs. The Girl from Hollywood. New York: The Macaulay Company [1923].
    First edition. Twelvemo. 320 pages. Frontispiece illustration by P. J. Monahan.

    Red cloth with green lettering and decorations on spine and front cover. Lettering on spine is faded. Some foxing on the endpapers. The dust jacket with some wear, tears and minor paper loss. Overall near fine condition.

    In a rare move away from adventure and science-fiction, Edgar Rice Burroughs became topical with this novel inspired by early 1920s Hollywood scandals. Sex, drugs, and jazz are the order of the day in this tale of a girl who will do anything to make it big in Tinsel Town. A scarce Burroughs title with a "hot" dust jacket illustration by P. J. Monahan. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
