As per usual when Glassner photos are made available on eBay, these are not original; in fact, several of them appear to be halftones honed from books (notably Leonard Maltin's mid-seventies paperback bio and Frederick W. Ott's "The Films Of Carole Lombard"). All have minimum opening bids of $14.95, and bidding ends for all nine between 9:22 and 10:27 p.m. (Eastern) next Tuesday.
With that out of the way, let's start with two images that are new to me as stills, both from Mack Sennett two-reelers. First, one from "The Bicycle Flirt," where Carole is attending to a troubled Billy Bevan:
Next, from Lombard's last work for Sennett, "Matchmaking Mamma," where Carole dwarfs diminutive Daphne Pollard:
The "Flirt" photo is at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTO-BICYCLE-FLIRT-MACK-SENNETT-GLASSNER-COLLECTION-/261100436816?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccacc7d50; for "Mamma," go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTO-MATCHMAKING-MAMMA-MACK-SENNETT-GLASSNER-COLLECTION-/261100432268?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccacc6b8c.
Rounding out the Sennett contributions is this still from "A Gold Digger Of Weepah," culled from Maltin's book. It's at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTO-A-GOLD-DIGGER-OF-WEEPAH-BILLY-BEVAN-GLASSNER-COLLECTION-/261100414556?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccacc265c:
The rest of the silent-era photos are from films now deemed lost, so all of these images have shown up before. Another Maltin product is this still from 1921's "A Perfect Crime," in which pre-teen Jane Alice Peters worked alongside renowned actor Monte Blue.

Her next film, and the first as Carole Lombard, wouldn't come until 1925 and "Marriage In Transit." This is represented by two stills -- first, perhaps the best version I've yet seen of this image, as Lombard's unsure how to handle the advances of Edmund Lowe...
...followed by a significantly less attractive image, again culled from Maltin:
For the first photo (a double-weight in very fine condition), check out http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTO-MARRIAGE-IN-TRANSIT-EDMUND-LOWE-GLASSNER-COLLECTION-/261100410849?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccacc17e1.

Later in 1925 at Fox, the 16-year-old Lombard appeared in "Hearts And Spurs" with Buck Jones; find it at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTO-HEARTS-AND-SPURS-BUCK-JONES-GLASSNER-COLLECTION-/261100421058?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccacc3fc2:
Carole's final film before her 1926 auto accident was "The Road To Glory" (a film directed by Howard Hawks eight years before they would reunite for her pivotal performance in "Twentieth Century"), and this image of Lombard with Rockliffe Fellowes appeared in Ott's book. I'm guessing that's where this halftone originated. See it at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTO-THE-ROAD-TO-GLORY-ROCKLIFFE-FELLOWES-GLASSNER-COLLECTION-/261100417817?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccacc3319:
The sole talking picture represented in this batch is Lombard's lone excursion into horror, 1933's "Supernatural." We'll show the back of this photo as well, because it shows where Glassner obtained it:
