Elinor Glyn Autographed Portrait. "Would you like to sin with Elinor Glyn on a tiger skin?" went the popular doggerel after this red-haired, green-eyed writer rocked the "proper" circles with the publication of her risque 1907 novel, Three Weeks. It was the free-living Ms. Glyn who coined the expression "It" (in her 1923 novel The Man and the Moment) that became the label for Roaring '20s sex symbol Clara Bow. (Glyn also wrote a 1927 novella entitled It in 1927.) Elinor sojourned in Hollywood, and was instrumental in the stardom of Rudolph Valentino. Here's a beautiful 8" x 10" signed portrait of Ms. Glyn, offering her best side profile and inscribing in black fountain pen, "To Jeanne de Casalis with every good wish from Elinor Glyn 1930." In Excellent condition. By the way, to continue the poem from above: "..Or would you prefer to err with her on some other fur?"
