Akron, Ohio Saalfield 1935 Hard Cover Very Good No DJ, as Issued 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall 
Saalfield published many books and paper tiems about Hollywood movies and atars which is why this one is typical. They also published LOTS of Shirley Temple books, paper dolls etc. This book was tied to the Columbia film of the same name starring Warner Baxter, Myrna Loy, Helen Vinson and Walter Connolly. The book is illustrated throughout with black and white stills from the movie. It's a small book measuring just 4-3/4" wide and 5-1/4" tall and part of Saalfield's Little Big Books. Book is tightly bound with no names or writing and clean pages which have toned -- almost of the Big Little Bigs toned due to the acidic paper used. There's little exterior wear, but nothing really egregious. Overall it's a nice little collectible.
