DescriptionA Henry Hathaway Collection of Family Photo Albums, 1940s-1950s. Thirteen albums; all bound in maroon leather; some with titles embossed in gold ink on the spines such as "Europe," "England," "Me, Inc.," "407," and the like; each filled with countless black and white snapshots of vacations, parties, leisure activities, pets, children, and friends that were all important enough to document and save by the Hathaways. Because this was a Hollywood family, some of the friends seen in the photographs include (in alphabetical order): Anne Baxter, Gary Cooper, Rock Hudson, Van Johnson, Peter Lawford, Tyrone Power, James Steward, Shirley Temple, and Darryl F. Zanuck, among many others who were writers, producers, bit players, and wives; also included are a number of photographs from the 1920s which appear to be silent-era film stills that Hathaway probably was involved with to some degree. Of special note is the size and quality of most of the photographs -- either 8"x10" or 5"x7" and professionally developed -- not the average kind of small "family snapshots" of the era as Hathaway obviously had top of the line photographic equipment -- the collection must be seen in person as our catalogue illustration does not do it justice.
Each Album Approximately: 13" x 10" x 2"
