Item Description: London: William Heinemann, 1931. First edition, first printing. Original cloth in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine clean and bright copy, without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the first issue rubbed, nicked and lightly creased dustwrapper which has a chip to the top right corner of the upper panel and some short closed tears to the extremities. The dustwrapper is priced 7/6 net on the spine as called for. Although the author did not allow the book to be reprinted, the dustwrapper does exist in two states. Following poor sales, the publisher replaced the original 7/6 net dustwrappers on all unsold copies with a second issue, the price reduced to 3/6net on the spine. One of the great rarities in the Greene cannon. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

Item Description: London: William Heinemann Limited, 1939, 1939. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in red, buff endpapers. With the dust jacket. Contents lightly toned as usual, spine gently rolled but an excellent copy in the somewhat marked and frayed dust jacket with very small loss at the overlapping top edge. In fact a very nice copy indeed of a vulnerable late 1930s thriller. First edition, first impression. One of the author's key pre-war mystery novels. Exceptionally scarce in dust jacket.

Item 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

Item Description: Heinemann, London, 1938. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. HARDBACK - A near fine book that is free of any owner names or inscriptions. The pages are clean with just a touch of foxing to the page block. The red boards are clean with un bumped corners and spine tips. There are some faint black spots to the spine, but the gilt lettering is fresh and bright. Included with this book is the rare Heinemann review slip. The review slip is loosly inserted into the book. The D/W IS A SECOND IMPRESSION.printed only two months after the first impression. The very fragile wrapper has benefitted from some subtle restoration to the spine tips and to the corners of the front and rear flap folds. The end result is a wrapper that is now complete, and is excellent in appearence. There is light fading to the wrapper's spine, and light soiling to the rear panel. Although the d/w has been lightly restored, we have ensured that the wrapper is as original as possible, with no unnecassary cleaning. The dust wrapper has been repriced at 4s.net to the front flap. The dust wrapper folds tightly around the book. We gave up the hope, many years ago of ever thinking we would be able to obtain a first/ first of this title. For some reason, the first impression of this dust wrapper is impossibly rare. This second Impression wrapper, nearly as rare. A very nice example of one of Graham Greene's most iconic, and most sought after titles, and a true highlight in any collection. Bookseller Inventory # 000676

Item 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

Item 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.

Item 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, 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, pp. 289-290. Spicer, pp. 50-51. Bookseller Inventory # 101955
