With the RKO film starring Hepburn being released in 1934, one can only assume that the publication date of this volume - with the front panel movie still of Hepburn as Babbie the gypsy - would probably have been in the same year as the film. This was the general convention for most photoplay editions. Not listed in Davis or Petaja, no jacketed copies found in the trade, WorldCat or in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science collections. Thus a mostly complete jacketed copy of what appears to be an unrecorded photoplay jacket.
