Item Description: Grosset & Dunlap G&D, 1928. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. The is the First Edition, First Printing dust jacketed copy of The Missing Chums by Franklin W. Dixon. This book and jacket meet the criteria for a first printing according to the 6th edition of Hardy & Hardy Investigations by Tony Carpentieri. The main point of a first printing jacket is the "Books For Boys" ad on the back of the jacket featuring 10 titles. The main point of a first printing of the book is the letters near the end of page 110 are not bashed or broken. The Book is in Near Fine condition, with slight soiling on the front. The pages are still crisp and white, the binding is firm, and there are no markings in the book except a sticker denoting the original bookstore it was sold (Ream's in Lancaster, PA). 214 pages plus 3 pages of ads at rear. Red boards with black lettering on front, and black titles to spine. No inscriptions.The book has an unbroken bottom of page 110, and according to the Carpentieri Guide, "the breaks in the hyphen and the last letter of page 110 occurred DURING the first printing", making this a unique copy with no breaks. It also has a clean page 47, although this point is not listed in the Guide. Other points are available upon request. This printing is the newly identified first,1928A-1. The ads are in accordance with the true first printing having Tom Swift in third position and no Hardy Boys listings. In order, they appear: This Isn't All! > Western Stories For Boys (5) > Gary Grayson Football Stories (5) > The Tom Swift Series (29) . The Don Sturdy Series (7) > The Radio Boys Series (10). Overall a beautiful copy! The Dust Jacket is in Good condition, with a slightly darkened spine (like most of the jackets from this era, although this copy is not too dark). The shield, while faded, is still red and visible. There are a few pieces missing from the jacket, but both flaps are intact. There is a bit of staining on the back of the jacket, and a closed tear halfway through the front. The jacket is now protected by it's mylar covering and displays quite nicely. Carpentieri's Guide sates that this jacket is "definitely the rarest of the 'original eleven' dust jacketed first printings (much scarcer than the highly prized volume #11 [While the Clock Ticked].)" The main point of a first printing for this jacket is the "Book for Boys" ad; other points are available upon request. This is a seldom-seen first printing copy of one of the most popular Hardy Boys titles! Also check out my other listings, including a first printing of #34 Hooded Hawk, the most scarce Hardy Boys dust jacket! Please contact me if you have any questions or would like photos.

THis is a Ist Edition, Ist Issue of the 7th book in the Hardy Boys series. The Dust Jacket is amazingly bright & colorfull as well as the red cloth book. The front flap lists 7 books this being the last one as well as the inside copy write page. The back of the jacket lists 7 X Bar Boys titles. All the remainder of the points listed in Carpentieri's Bibliography are equally present on the Dust Jacket and the Book. The back and spine of the jacket have darked slightly with a tiny bit of soiling. Their are 3 small close tears on the back cover, a small piece lacking & a tiny chip on each end of the spine not effecting the words. The lower edge & side shows a little wear. The inside of the jacket had some scotch tape that has been removed. All close tears and weak areas have been repaired with archival tape. The pictures should show these minor flaws. The book is in very good condition but for a crease across the front cover & a former owner signature & date on the inside back cover. The interior is in unread condition with no marks or foxing. The first blank page has been reattached & not noticeable . I have tried very carefully to detail all flaws, overall this is one of the best I've ever seen. Bookseller Inventory # 62

Item Description: Los Angeles Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer 1953, 1953. First Edition. Screenwriter and director Robert PiroshÕs own copy of the 107 page shooting script for the historical drama,Valley of the Kings, based in large measure on the noted book on ancient Egypt, Gods, Graves and Scholars by C.W. Ceram. Hardbound in rich deep red leather with raised bands and the title gilt-stamped on the spine and cover as well as ÒROBERT PIROSHÓ on the front board. Fine condition. Includes a DVD of the film. Robert Pirosh also directed and produced this film which starred Robert Taylor, Eleanor Parker, Carlos Thompson, Kurt Kasznar, Victor Jory, Leon Askin, and Aldo Silvani, and was shot entirely on location in various Egyptian settings, including Cairo, Luxor, and at the stunning Pyramids of Giza. The eleven black & white photos (all 8Ó x 10Ó) bound into the script show the principal cast members in various scenes from the film, with one showing a behind-the-scenes shot of Pirosh and several crew members filming a scene. The additional black & white photographs included as a group are of various sizes, ranging from 4 1/2Ó x 3 1/4Ó to 11 1/2Ó x 9Ó, and feature Pirosh in his role as director, giving guidance to the actors and the crew, with one amusing shot of some of the ÔharemÕ ladies playing with Pirosh on a silk-swathed lounge. One of the photographs is a signed and inscribed portrait of the Italian actor Aldo Silvani who played Father Anthimos in the film, and reads in SilvaniÕs hand: ÒTo my dear friend Robert Pirosh, Aldo Silvani, 13-11-54, Rome.Ó The story line of Valley of the Kings centers on the search for the tomb of the Egyptian Pharaoh, Ra-hotep, by a young woman (Parker) who is attempting to validate her late fatherÕs claims that the Old Testament accounts of Joseph in Egypt are factual. She enlists the help of a handsome American archaeologist (Taylor), who is more than eager to lend a hand - as much for the adventure as in the chance to further his personal ambitions. The plot is complicated by mysterious opposition, with many ensuing twists and turns, not the least of which is a powerful attraction between Parker and Taylor. Much of the story is based upon the scholarly work of C.W. Ceram, whose classic book Gods, Graves and Scholars served as an important reference for Pirosh. The film is noteworthy for its attention to detail as it brings Hollywood and Egypt together for a terrific blend of exotic locale, high adventure, and romance. Robert Pirosh won a Golden Globe and an Oscar in 1950 for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay for the film Battleground, and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay for the 1951 film Go for Broke! Some of PiroshÕs other films include the Marx Brothers film A Day at the Races, Hell is for Heroes, A Gathering of Eagles, etc. He also wrote for television, including such well-known series as Ironside, Bonanza, Mannix, Harry O, The Hardy Boys, Ellery Queen, The Waltons, and Combat.
