Signed by both Wiener and Stolley – Marilyn Monroe – a Hollywood Farewell by Leigh Wiener with preface by Richard B Stolley – first edition 1990, limited edition of 275 copies. Mint condition with dj present and loosely inserted the printed prospectus for the book. This has been signed by both Wiener and Stolley making it a particular rarity. Weiner died during the process of signing the limited edition copies and therefore only signed a few of them, of which this is one. The book also bears an autograph dedication signed to Dominic Dale by Phil Syracopoulos, editor of the book : ‘Dominic: a unique book about a fascinating woman’. This is unquestionably one of the most sought after books concerning Marilyn Monroe and is considered a particular rarity – this one, bearing the signatures is perhaps unique.
