Item Description: PRESSES DE LA CITE 1950's, 1950. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. LOT of 453 UN MYSTERE French Vintage Mystery Paperbacks from PRESSES DE LA CITE issued between 1949 and 1964. The UN MYSTERE ("A MYSTERY") series from PRESSES DE LA CITE represents the best of postwar French-language Vintage Mystery Paperbacks from France. There were 1-769 numbered Mystery titles (NB: numbers 647 & 766 do not exist) issued from 1949 to 1966 along with 9 RARE pre-numbered titles issued between 1947 and 1949 with roman numerals I-IX with each book also issued with a illustrated dust jacket. These 9 were a trial run and, based on their success, the numbered series started in 1949. (NB: None of these I-IX are present in this lot.) The publisher announced on the back cover of some titles that 2 titles a month were initially issued then 4 titles reaching 6 titles a month at its peak. Most titles in this series were translated into French from then contemporary American and British writers, along with some original French writers, notably Jean BRUCE, Jean-Pierre CONTY, and Gilles MORRIS, covering all aspects of the Mystery field from Whodunits, Detective and Hard-boiled to Suspense, Thriller and Espionage. Some of the American and British authors in this specific lot include: EDWARD AARONS, WILLIAM ARD, BILL BALLINGER, BEN BENSON, OWEN CAMERON, JAMES HADLEY CHASE, PETER CHEYNEY, JONATHAN CRAIG, URSULA CURTISS, SPENCER DEAN, CARTER DICKSON, FERGUSON FINDLEY, JOHN FLAGG, RAE FOLEY, ERLE STANLEY GARDNER (also as A.A. FAIR), ANDREW GARVE, WILLIAM CAMPBELL GAULT, HARTLEY HOWARD, WILLIAM IRISH (CORNELL WOOLRICH), ADAM KNIGHT, ED LACY, JOHN ROSS MACDONALD, J.J. MARRIC (JOHN CREASEY), WHIT MASTERSON, ED McBAIN, MARGARET MILLER, WADE MILLER, ELLERY QUEEN, PATRICK QUENTIN, PETER RABE, CRAIG RICE, MICKEY SPILLANE, THOMAS WALSH, LIONEL WHITE along with many others. ERLE STANLEY GARDNER was the most prolific writer in this series with a whopping 111 titles issued, many of these are included in this lot. However, the main attraction for Vintage Paperback collectors is the interesting cover artwork. Some early covers appear to be originals, but the majority are "cover swipes" taken from nearly all the American, and some British, 1950ís and 1960ís paperback publishers including: ACE, AVON, GOLD MEDAL, POCKET BOOKS, POPULAR LIBRARY, etc. These covers were partially redrawn presumably by French artists and, although this artwork is not as slick, many are still recognizable as being taken from other English language Vintage Paperback companies. The first 100 or so titles have some of the most attractive cover artwork and are generally the most difficult to find as First printings especially in better than Good condition. Individual titles appear for sale now and then, but large lots like this one are now simply RARE. This collection represents almost 60% of all titles issued by this publisher and is the result of many years of collecting. One would be hard pressed to find this many together! Five photos show a selection of titles in this lot, additional photos & scans are also available. A complete checklist of all 767 titles published will be provided to the buyer so he can see which titles are present. CONDITION: Early numbers especially those under #100 in this lot are in about Good (some better) condition with some spine creasing and edge wear, some light corner creases, the original sale price of 50¢ penned or stamped on some titles, however many of later higher numbers are generally Very Good (or better) condition. #007200 Price: $4500.00 (This is a heavy set of 453 books and will require additional postage. Please e-mail to confirm availability and correct postage before ordering.). Bookseller Inventory # 007200
