A Marilyn Monroe Signed Book "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," Circa 1950s. The book by Anita Loos, hardcover, dust jacket, published by Grosset & Dunlap, 17th printing dated October 1926 (interestingly, the year MM was born), signed in blue fountain pen ink on the title page "To Linda / Love & Kisses / Marilyn Monroe;" "Linda" being Linda Bennett, a child actress who had a professional acquaintance with MM. (Please note the inscription is somewhat faded, there are penciled doodles on the inside back cover, and the dust jacket has many chips and losses.)
