Loos, Anita
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. The Illuminated Diary of a Professional Lady.
Boni and Liveright (Modern Library)
New York, 1926

Eleventh Printing April 1926
Hard Cover
Good to Very Good

Ralph Barton

217 pgs. Good to Very Good condition hardcover, red and white decorated boards, red cloth spine, paper titlepiece on front board. General rubbing along edges and corners, darkening to paper of boards, binding very sound, internally clean and unmarked but for previous owner name and date on front endpaper and a small clear waterspot at top margin of text block. A few pages have dogeared corners. Illustrated by Ralph Barton, the popularity of this 1925 comic novel exceeded expectations and the publisher produced multiple printings in short order. This copy is a later printing, with the originally misspelled "Paris Is Devine" chapter title re-appearing in the table of contents as per the author's wishes. Loos was inspired to write the book, first appearing in magazine installments, after observing her close friend H.L. Mencken fall head over heals for a sexy blonde. Several film adaptations were also inspired in 1928 and 1953, the latter starring Marilyn Monroe and carol Channing. A stage musical followed in 1949. #2375
