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.

Item Description: 1955. First Edition. Signed. GREENE, Graham.The Quiet American.London: William Heinemann, (1955).First edition, presentation copy, of Greene’s controversial and "tart study of an American Government do-gooder in Saigon," inscribed on the title page to famous respected journalist and film and theater critic Clive Hirschhorn, wildly known for his massive collection of modern first editions: "For Clive from Graham Greene," in scarce original dust jacket."I think a writer ought to be a bit of grit in the state machine," Graham Greene once said. In this "tart study of an American Government do-gooder in Saigon during the anti-French uprisings of the mid-1950s" (New York Times), Greene’s critically praised novel proves "urgent, mournful and unsparing there’s not another book quite like it" (Salon). Adapted to the screen in 1958, and again in 2002 with Michael Caine.Miller 35a.Book with only slight rubbing to corners and minor bubbling to cloth, dust jacket with light rubbing to extremities and mild toning to spine. A near-fine presentation copy, most desirable inscribed and with a wonderful provenance. Bookseller Inventory # 89630

Item Description: Heinemann, London, 1938. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. HARDBACK - A near fine, first edition 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: Heinemann, London, 1955. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author to novelist Rex Warner and his wife, Barbara Rothschild, "For Rex + Barbara with love, from Graham." A few small spots to the text block, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with the lightest of shelf wear. Rex Warner was an English novelist, classicist, and translator. Writer and critic V. S. Pritchett described Warner as "the only outstanding novelist of ideas whom the decade of ideas produced." Greene and Warner, both educated at Oxford traveled in many of the same circles, and Barbara was a close friend of Catherine Walston, with whom Greene was having an affair. Rex and Barbara met at a party hosted by Greene, and Greene and Walston would often spend weekends with the couple at Barbara Rothchild's home in Tackley, England. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A wonderful association copy. Against the intrigue and violence of Vietnam during the French war with the Vietminh, Alden Pyle, an idealistic young American, is sent to promote democracy, as his friend, Fowler, a cynical foreign correspondent, looks on. Fowler's mistress, a beautiful native girl, creates a catalyst for jealousy and competition between the men, and a cultural clash resulting in bloodshed and deep misgivings. Written in 1955 prior to the Vietnam conflict, The Quiet American foreshadows the events leading up to the Vietnam conflict. The Quiet American proves "urgent, mournful and unsparing there's not another book quite like it" (Salon). Adapted to the screen in 1958, and again in 2002 starring Michael Caine and Brendan Fraser.

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: The Viking Press, New York, 1948. First American edition of what many consider the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Bob Goldstein from Graham Greene Nothing under $200,000." Light wear, else near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The Heart of the Matter tells the story of a good man enmeshed in love, intrigue, and evil in a West African coastal town. Scobie is bound by strict integrity to his role as assistant police commissioner and by severe responsibility to his wife, Louise, for whom he cares with a fatal pity. When Scobie falls in love with the young widow Helen, he finds vital passion again yielding to pity, integrity giving way to deceit and dishonor—a vortex leading directly to murder.

Item Description: London, Heinemann. 1947, 1947. First Edition, GREENE FAMILY COPY, INSCRIBED. 8vo. 231pp. Publisher's dark blue cloth, clean and bright, slightly bumped to spine ends. Dusty top edge, some slight toning of the endpapers due to the cheap paper stock. Dustwrapper strong and bright, darkening to spine and fraying to head and tail of spine panel. A very nice copy, made all the more notable due to the presentation inscriptions to a relative, to flyleaf, firstly by Hugh Greene; 'A. from H. with love /(A.B. Greene/ Oak Cottage/ Plumpton / Sussex,'with additional inscription from the author '+ from Graham' (underlined). Graham and Hugh were two of six children from a highly successful family. [Sir] Hugh Carleton Greene, KCMG, OBE was an author and broadcaster, and Director-General of the BBC (1960-69), and younger brother to the famous English novelist Graham Greene, OM, also the poet Herbert Greene, and distinguished physician and Everest mountaineer Raymond Greene. There were also two sisters; Elizabeth Greene, who joined MI6 and recruited Graham into the regular ranks of the service, and another sister Alice Marion, referred to as Molly in 'A Sort of Life.' The A.B. Greene who was the recipient of this book is likely to be Audrey Blanche Greene (nee Nutting) who was Herbert's wife - our thanks go to Anthony Loudon for the discovery of A.B. Greene's identity. Bookseller Inventory # 32102

Item Description: William Heinemann, London, UK, 1938. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. FIRST EDITION & FIRST PRINTING. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. No other printings are mentioned, so this is absolutely a first printing - Description: A beautiful and vibrant facsimile dust-jacket accompanies the book; so you can see how the book looked exactly when it was first sold! - Iconic pink and black cover design. This wonderful book certainly stands out from the crowd! Strong boards firmly held to inner page block. Small tear to the spine cloth at the top and small chip to bottom. Looks amazingly clean with very minor soiling. Slight scuffing to corners. All 361 pages are present. The front and rear blank end-pages are missing and there is a small nick to the page edge on the full title page. Pages are browned and foxed throughout.There is a crack at the margin at the very last page. - Graham Greene on Brighton Rock: -- Brighton Rock I began in 1937 as a detective story and continued, I am sometimes tempted to think, as an error of judgment¿The first fifty pages of Brighton Rock are all that remain of the detective story; they would irritate me, if I dared to look at them now, for I know I ought to have had the strength of mind to remove them, and to start the story again¿however difficult the revisions might have proved ¿ with what is now called Part Two -- .the setting of Brighton Rock may in part belong to an imaginary geographic region. Though Nelson Place has been cleared away since the war, and the Brighton race gangs were to all intents quashed forever as a serious menace at Lewes Assizes a little before the date of my novel, and even Sherry's dance hall has vanished, they certainly did exist; there was a real Nelson Place, and a man was kidnapped on Brighton front in a broad daylight of the thirties, though not in the same circumstances as Hale, and his body was found somewhere out towards the Downs flung from a car. Colleoni, the gang leader, had his real prototype who had retired by 1938 and lived a gracious Catholic life in one of the Brighton crescents, although I found his name was still law when I demanded entrance by virtue of it to a little London nightclub called The Nest behind Regent Street¿ -- All the same I must plead guilty to manufacturing this Brighton of mine as I never manufactured Mexico or Indochina. There were no living models for these gangsters, nor for the barmaid who so obstinately refused to come alive. I had spent only one night in the company of someone who could have belonged to Pinkie's gang¿a man from the Wandsworth dog-tracks whose face had been carved because he was suspected of grassing to the bogies after a killing in the stadium. (He taught me the only professional slang I knew, but one cannot learn a language in one night however long.) -- .The Pinkies are the real Peter Pans ¿ doomed to be juvenile for a lifetime. They have something of a fallen angel about them, a morality which once belonged to another place. The outlaw of justice always keeps in his heart the sense of justice outraged ¿ his crimes have an excuse and yet he is pursued by the Others. The Others have committed worse crimes and flourish. The world is full of Others who wear the masks of Success, of a Happy Family. Whatever crime he may be driven to commit the child who doesn't grow up remains the great champion of justice. "An eye for an eye." "Give them a dose of their own medicine." As children we have all suffered punishments for faults we have not committed, but the wound has soon healed. With Raven and Pinkie the wound never heals. - Thanks for your interest and I hope you like the book enough to buy it. --- Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. - Regards from Arabella.
