    An Orson Welles Radio-Related Scrapbook, 1944. Compiled specifically for Welles himself by a professional clipping service, housed in an oversized black cloth binder, over 50 pages, filled with hundreds of newspaper and magazine clippings all related to Welles primarily on the radio where he continued to work even after "Citizen Kane" came out in 1941, other included clippings are more of the "gossipy" variety, articles are from various publications around the United States and are all glued to the scrapbook pages -- overall, a rare and comprehensive collection as virtually all of these articles are not available anywhere else; included with a letter from Beatrice Welles indicating she consigned this lot directly to Heritage Auctions. (Please note the clippings are yellowed and many are unglued from the pages, and the front and back covers are dirtied, but the articles are still intact and legible.)
    16" x 18" x 1 1/2"
