List of new books for your Chaplin fans

Below are four new Chaplin books out this fall that might fill that Christmas list. I have entered all these books shown below into the Chaplin/Silent Film book and music guide at Edna's.


Chaplin: A Life - By Stephen M. Weissman (more)


Charlie Chaplin's South London - by Dr. Alan F. Parkinson
Update Dec. 1st: You can order directly from Dr. Parkinson at Amazon UK.
Check the Used book section under AF Parkinson.
He does send outside the UK.


The Comedy of Charlie Chaplin - by Dan Kamin


Chaplin at Essanay - by James L. Neibaur

I have not seen any of these books above, but look to be an interesting group to choose from.

Also, here are a couple books about the silent film era which have Chaplin and Purviance included in them. (These two books I do have and have enjoyed!)




Aviators in Early Hollywood - by Shawna Kelly











Silent Lives - by Lon Davis







Here is a new one I found on the web about silent films.





A Brief History of The Silent Screen and the World at that Time
By Larry Telles
