"An Evening's Entertainment: The Age of the Silent Feature Picture 1915-1928"

by Richard Koszarski (University of California Press, 1990, 395 pages.)

Somewhat of a mix of a reference work and a history. Excellent information, and some different information that you won't find elsewhere such as trends in theatre attendance, production costs, etc. Chapters on the technology and making movies as well as the filmmakers and stars. Third volume in a "History of the American Cinema."
