    Charlie Chaplin At the Movies #316 (Essanay/M. A. Donohue & Co., 1917) Condition: FN/VF. Art by E. C. Segar, predating his Thimble Theater strip. A small piece of tape on the inside front cover holds a string from an early price tag, and a tiny tear is evident on the lower front cover; otherwise, the is the nicest example of this early, oversized rarity we've ever seen. Clearly, without the tape on the inside cover (added not as a repair, but by the original bookseller), this stunning example would grade a solid VF 8.0, if not better -- this one will be hard to top, Platinum Age fans! Overstreet 2008 FN 6.0 value = $525; VF 8.0 value = $1,400.
