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. 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: Heinemann, 1932. Uncorrected proof copy. Original red paper wrappers printed in black. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "For Bruce [Howard], these proofs before Priestley's threat of libel. from Graham (Greene)" A near fine copy a closed tear to the front joint. Housed in a cloth chemise and slipcase. A rare proof, which as Greene's inscription alludes to, contains the suppressed text eventually objected to by J.B.Priestley. The minor character of Q.C. Savory, an ever-so-slightly ridiculous Cockney novelist, had been created by Greene as a rather cruel parody of Priestley. Priestley (also a Heinemann author) having received an advance copy to review for the Evening Standard had taken exception to this lampooning and threatened legal action, causing the publishers to recall all advance copies and make changes to the text to appease Priestley. "My suggestion that we should fight the libel action was brushed aside. Evans made it clear to me that if Heinemann were going to lose an author, they would much prefer to lose me. Thirteen thousand copies of the book had already been printed and bound. Pages would have to be substituted, and I must share the cost. Alterations had to be made at once, on the spot, without reflection." - Graham Greene (A Sort of Life). The various changes included Q.C. Savory to Quin Savory. Savory's references to Dickens were changed to Chaucer or Shakespeare and his penchant for the pipe (for which Priestley was famous) was changed to cigars. Publishers of this period produced only a handful of proofs for the author and editors to check and suggest amendments. As a consequence they are rarely encountered in commerce.

Only very few copies of this first issue survive.A few small spots to bottom edge. Very good indeed in good, rubbed and torn dustwrapper defective at the top of the spine.

Item Description: William Heinemann, London, 1948. First edition of what many consider the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "For Randall Scott with my greetings from Graham Greene."An excellent example with light rubbing and wear to the topstain in a very good dust jacket with some of the usual wear to the extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed by Greene. 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. As Scobie's world crumbles, his personal crisis develops the foundation of a story by turns suspenseful, fascinating, and, finally, tragic. ''Graham Greene was in a class by himself. He will be read and remembered as the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety" (William Golding). Bookseller Inventory # 2068

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: Heinemann, 1940. Uncorrected proof copy. Original buff wrappers printed in red. A very good copy indeed, which shows some tanning and creasing to the paper spine, but is otherwise bright and crisp. Housed in a cloth chemise and slipcase. Critically considered Greene's greatest novel and one of the highlights of twentieth century literature, which showcases Greene's technique of painting intricate moral landscapes where corrupt characters might still be capable of goodness and virtuous ones indulge their virtues murderously. Publishers of this period only printed a handful of copies of their proofs, exclusively for the use of the author and editors to check and suggest amendments. As a consequence they are rarely encountered in commerce. Connolly 88. Bookseller Inventory # 35835

Item Description: London Heinemann, 1932. First edition, first issue, recalled by the publishers after objections by J.B. Priestley. Original black cloth lettered in gilt to the spine. Endpapers on thicker stock, possibly supplied later. A very good copy with minor surface wear to the covers and slight dulling to the gilt. Internally very clean. The minor character of Q.C. Savory, an ever-so-slightly ridiculous Cockney novelist, had been created by Greene as a rather cruel parody of J.B. Priestley.

Item Description: Heinemann, 1940. First edition. Original yellow cloth with red lettering in purple dustwrapper printed in black. A very good copy with a small ownership inscription and pushing to the corners in a very good dustwrapper, which is tanned to the spine and has some restoration to the spine ends, corners and folds. Critically considered Greene's greatest novel and one of the highlights of twentieth century literature, which showcases Greene's technique of painting intricate moral landscapes where corrupt characters might still be capable of goodness and virtuous ones indulge their virtues murderously. It is supposed that much of the stocks of the first edition of this book were destroyed when Heinemann's publishing house was bombed during the war. Consequently the book is scarce. Connolly 88.

Item Description: Eyre and Spottiswoode, London, 1951. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to fellow writer Norman Douglas, "Dear Norman This with my love. Thank you so much for the nostalgic picture postcard. Catherine and I both miss you a great deal" With Norman Douglas's ownership stamp on the front pastedown. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A fine association linking these two great novelists and travel writers of the twentieth century. Norman Douglas is best known for his novel South Wind.However his travel books also combine erudition, insight, and some fine prose, which Greene drew upon for both his novels and travel books. These works include Siren Land (1911), Fountains in the Sand, described as 'rambles amongst the oases of Tunisia' (1912), Old Calabria (1915), Together (Austria) (1923) and Alone (Italy) (1921). In Michael Shelden's biography of Greene The Man Within he paints a vivid account of Greene's stay at Villa Rosaio in Anacapri, high above the Bay of Naples. It is, as Shelden points out, a difficult place to find and clearly an ideal retreat for a well known author like Greene. It was here that Greene struck up a close friendship with the author Norman Douglas, During the 1940s and 50s Greene and Douglas would often meet up and share dinners together and the two become close friends.
