About Pressbooks:

Pressbooks were produced for distribution to movie theaters as a tool to help promote its respective film. There is a lot of unique information to be found in a pressbook, so they are generally a great resource for collectors and researchers alike.

Pressbook will contain any of the following: articles, ads, promotional ideas, pictures of the film's posters, poster / herald order forms, miscellaneous publicity material, etc. It was common for theatres to cut out ads from pressbooks and submit them for publication in print media This is what the "clippings" count above refers. Naturally a fully intact pressbook is most desirable. Measurements vary from pressbook to pressbook, as does their page count and overall attractiveness.

The nicest pressbooks will have lavish full color layouts with die-cuts, gatefolds, and other miscellaneous extravagances, while a more bare-bones example might look like a big black and white pamphlet. Sometimes pressbooks would include sample heralds, separate sections of ad mats, or other miscellaneous inserts. If this lot includes any such supplements, they are accounted for above.

Value: $100.
