Book Description: Heinemann London 1934, 1934. The author's personal file copy with a letter of provenance to this effect laid-in and with his ownership signature. Extensively revised throughout for the third edition of 1948. On the verso of the half-title Greene has noted: "2nd edition in Penguin books - third edition completely revised 1948." Constructions are changed, there are insertions, additions and throughout the name "Commissioner" is changed to "Assistant Commissioner;" several passages are entirely crossed through. Disbound and used as a setting copy, with some extra pencil notes, probably by the printer, on some pages. Greene's corrections in ink on 150 pages. A sample check reveals that the corrections made here are incorporated into the revised edition. Bookseller Inventory # 14165

Book Description: London: William Heinemann, Ltd., 1932, 1932. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box. Contents occasionally marked, fore edges buffed, spine rolled and slightly faded. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, first issue. The character of a rather pompous and self regarding author appears in the central portion of this novel. He is named on pages 77, 78, 82, 98, and 131 as one "Q. C. Savory". J. B. Priestley who had read a review copy became convinced that Savory was based none too flatteringly upon him. Priestley threatened a libel suit and worse still threatened to leave Heinemann for whom he was one of their big names. Charles Evans called Greene and as he recalls in A Sort of Life, "made it clear to me that if Heinemann were going to lose an author, they would much prefer to lose me." So changes were made and two sections were reprinted. The original sheets were as yet unbound and so no pages needed cancelling. Very few copies of the uncorrected text were ever circulated and fewer still survive today. We know of a small handful of examples. Bookseller Inventory # 65413

Book Description: William Heinemann, London, 1932. First Edition. First issue, with uncorrected text; a proof copy in orange wraps. Pages 77, 78, 82, 98, and 131 have references to Q.C. Savory, an oblique reference to J.B. Priestley. Octavo [x], 307, [1] pp. (Wobbe, p. 17): "Greene also relates a conversation with Charles Evans concerning J.B. Priestley's threat of a libel action if certain lines in the then undistributed book were not changed. At that time, 13,000 copies had already been printed and bound, and altered pages had to be substituted. Priestley had seen a review copy when he demanded the changes, and so it is possible that a few copies without the alterations mentioned in "A SORT OF LIFE" may still exist." The present copy is such a copy. "Q.B. Savory" was changed to "Quin Savory" and "Dickens" was changed to "Chaucer." [TOGETHER WITH] Greene. Graham. STAMBOUL TRAIN. London, 1932; William Heinemann. First Edition, 307pp.showing the above textual changes incorporated. Bound in original blackcloth, spine lettered in gilt, rear hinge starting, front end paper with a couple of light stains and neat owner's name. Both housed in a custom open end slipcase.

Book Description: Paramount, Los Angeles, 1936. The earliest screenplay treatment for Graham Greene's "This Gun for Hire," written by screenwriter Dore Schary. Boldly SIGNED by Schary across the title page. Yellow carbon typescript sheets, 157 pages, bound with two gold brads. A Paramount file copy, with the Paramount Pictures file stamp and a holograph date notation of 5/28/37 at the top right corner of the title page (though the typed date on the title page is July 7, 1936). Very Good or better, with light wear at the corners and some tearing of the title page at the brads. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. From the AFI catalog: "Graham Greene's novel was originally published in England as A Gun for Sale, but the title was changed to This Gun for Hire for American publication. Material in the Paramount Collection at the AMPAS Library reveals the following information: The studio intended to produce the film as early as May 1936, shortly after Greene's novel was purchased for $12,000 in London. The story was also known as "Guns for Sale." Producer A. M. Botsford assigned Dore Schary to write the script and was considering Peter Lorre to play the role of 'Raven.' Two directors, E. A. DuPont and Robert Florey, were interested in the project, but because of production delays, Florey would not commit to the project. Botsford then began to have second thoughts about casting Lorre, who he felt might deliver a 'one-key performance.' In August 1936, Maurice Geraghty was signed to work on a script with Jack Moffitt, and Botsford considered James Hogan for director. By October 1936, two other writers, Thomas Monroe and Robert Wyler, contributed continuities and scripts, but when costs for producing the film appeared to be prohibitive, Botsford abandoned the project and soon after left Paramount. The project was taken up again in 1939 and 1940, and for a time, Paramount London considered making the film in Great Britain. Correspondence in the file reveals that in April 1940, actor Anthony Quinn and writer Lester Koenig worked on a version of the script, which apparently was rejected. Finally in June 1941, Albert Maltz, who wrote the final screenplay with W. R. Burnett, began a story outline, and, according to modern sources, the film was rushed into production to capitalize on the growing popularity of Veronica Lake, who had been chosen as the female lead. Modern sources note that the film was called 'The Redemption of Raven' on the Paramount studio lot. According to HR news items, Paramount considered Charlie Ruggles for a role in the film, but ultimately chose Alan Ladd." Selby (1984) 427. Silver and Ward, pp. 289-290. Spicer, pp. 50-51. Ladd and Lake would go on to be one of the most popular screen couples in film history. The earliest screen treatment for a key 1940s film noir, and the first of several films in the noir cycle to be adapted from novels by Graham Greene. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, p. 324. Selby (1984) 427. Silver and Ward, pp. 289-290. Spicer, pp. 50-51. Bookseller Inventory # 101955

Book Description: Routledge & Sons Ltd, 1938. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. A first edition, first printing published by George Routledge and Sons in 1938. A very good+ book without inscriptions, marks or stamps. Some light wear to the spine tips. In a clipped wrapper which has been restored to the edges (mainly the top edge) and to corners. Generally a good example of a frail and rare wrapper. The book, is titled 'an authentic autobiography of a London prostitute' and was withdrawn from sale after pressure from the then Home Secretary, Reginald McKenna. Thought to have been ghostwritten by Graham Greene and Ronald Matthews, it is now known to have been written by Ronald Matthews, but with considerable input from Graham Greene (a drinking partner of Matthews). One of the rarest of Greene's novels, being, as it is, on the fringe of the canon. Rare. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12278076285

No place of publication: Selznick Releasing Corporation, 1950, 1950. 122 mimeographed pages printed on rectos only; apart from the dialogue it includes a title leaf and a three page synopsis with character descriptions, as well as two pages of credits, all on Selznick Releasing Corporation printed forms measuring 14 x 10.5; the dialogue is identified with its starting and ending place in the final film. The title leaf reads, The Third Man/ A Selznick Release/ Prepared by Sidney G. Samuels/ March, 1950. This is the revised dialogue for the American release, and includes the original and new lines. For various reasons, the American release was 11 minutes shorter than the English one. Bound at the top with brass studs. Generally in very good, complete condition. This script was previously owned by Serendipity Books and includes a copy of their descriptions of the item in 2008. It was later sold at auction by Bonhams, which sold most of Serendipity’s inventory after the death of owner Peter Howard, and this comes with the sticker from that sale. Very good, small tear and crinkling in corner of front page. Bookseller Inventory # 1309024

Book Description: Par l'auteur, 1980. Pas de couverture. - Par l'auteur, S.l. _1980, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. - Diptyque de portraits photographiques originaux en noir et blanc réalisés et tirés par Marc Trivier. Les deux photographies, mises en regard, sont: - Un portrait photographique original de Graham Greene. - Une photographie originale intitulée "Abattoir II" représentant des porcs dans l'abattoir d'Hannut en 1980. Portrait d'artiste, d'anonyme, de fou, d'abattoir ou d'arbre : Marc Trivier a photographié chaque sujet avec la même intensité interrogative. Toutes réalisées dans le même format carré, élémentaire et clos, sans retouche ni recadrage, les photographies semblent moins mettre en scène un sujet - célèbre ou inconnu, élu ou déchu, vivant ou mort - qu'interroger une présence. «Ce qui m’intéressait, ce n’était pas de photographier simplement un corps ou un visage, mais cette situation particulière qui est quelqu’un en train de faire la photo de quelqu’un d’autre.» En confrontant les portraits d'artistes à leur correspondant altéré, Trivier dévêt l'oeuvre de ses effets et dévoile l'énigmatique nudité du corps photographique. "Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. " (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, le 05/03/2011 à l'occasion de la rétrospective Marc Trivier à la Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Tirages argentiques non signés, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuves uniques tirées par l'artiste. Pliures dans la marge inférieure de la photographie de Graham Greene sans atteinte au portrait. Rarissime diptyque d'un des grands photographes contemporains. Bookseller Inventory # 35355
