About this Item: D. Appleton-Century, New York, 1938. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Paul Laune (illustrator). 1st Edition. First Edition (Appleton '(1)' on the last page). 'Pigman' is an unusual name. Probably helps to toughen up a person. But more importantly, who out there has an Augustus Pigman signed book? No one, as far as I can see. It appears that he wrote two books, at least two are for sale on the Internet, though there are only a few of those. You can get a look at this book from the photographs I've provided. The blue covers are clean, but do have color fading at the margins of both the front and back as well as on the spine. The corners have small spots of rub-through. The edges look pretty good. The silver lettering on the spine has held up. There is slight fraying at the top edge of the spine and little color loss at the bottom edge of the spine. The book is square and straight. It is very solidly bound from beginning to end. No binding issues at all. The pages have the typical age toning, not bad. They are exceptionally clean. In fact, scrolling through, I didn't see any soiling at all. They are also in very nice condition, meaning they are not creased, there are no dogeared corners. The book is also free of markings. There are no attachments. And with the exception of the author's signed inscription, no one has written their name or anything else anywhere in this book. There are many black and white illustrations, including a frontispiece. They are all drawings by Paul Laune. There's little bit about him: 'Paul Sidney Laune was an author, painter and illustrator, known for his book covers and for paintings he did of rural Western U.S. pioneer scenes. He covered pioneers, ranch-life, and quarter horses in his paintings. He painted five murals for the Plains Indians and Pioneers Museum in his hometown of Woodward, Oklahoma. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Laune worked as an illustrator and art critic in New York. He also lived in Phoenix, Arizona, where he drew quarter horses and wrote a book on them. Among the more famous works he illustrated, were books in the Hardy Boys Mystery Series. When I googled the editor, Alice V. Keliher, a New York Times obituary came up. I'm not sure that it's the same person. I wouldn't think there are a lot of Alice V. Keliher's about. Anyway, this Alice authored a few of her own books (including one for the same publisher, D. Appleton-Century ) and was 'a renowned expert on early childhood education. In the 1930's, she conducted seminal research on childhood development with Arnold Gesell at Yale University. He was also a close friend of Eleanor Roosevelt's. She helped several Jewish families escape from Germany and Austria in the late 1930's. Her lawyer said the enterprise was organized by the love of her life, a shadowy American intelligence agent whose death in World War II led Miss Keliher to vow to remain unmarried. A longtime professor of education at New York University, Miss Keliher cherished her unofficial title as the "grandmother of day care." She was also known to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. A short review from 'Spring Books of 1938' states: 'A Story Of Water is a story of water in the everyday life of man, and shows how the methods of getting water parallel the development of civilization. Exceedingly interesting both in material and treatment.' The chapters in this book examine Water for the Cave People, Water for the Herd People, Water for Ancient Egypt, Water for the Cities of the Roman Empire, Water in the Middle Ages, and Water in Modern Times (which in this case would've been the late 1930s.

This copy has been signed and dated, with a short inscription, on the half title page by the author. "Timbuktu, Honolulu, Singapore - it's all the same. Chet Hardy thought when he decided to go to sea in search of material for stories." "Howard Pease (September 6, 1894–April 14, 1974) was an American writer of adventure stories from Stockton, California. Most of his stories revolved around a young protagonist, Joseph Todhunter ("Tod") Moran who shipped out on tramp freighters during the interwar years.Pease's first published work was a short story that appeared in the June 1921 edition of the children's magazine The American Boy. He wrote his first novel, The Gypsy Caravan, in the early 1920s, although it was not published until 1930, when it became his fourth published novel. His first published novel was The Tattooed Man, based on two of his voyages and on a walking trip he took along the south coast of France from Marseilles to Italy; it appeared in 1926, and introduced Tod Moran, a young merchant mariner who is the protagonist in most of Pease's novels, working his way up from wiper to first mate as the novels – sometimes referred to as "the Tod Moran mysteries" – progress." ; Signed by Author.

About this Item: Exposition Press, Hicksville, New York, 1978. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Signed and inscribed by the author on the FFEP. Stated First Edition. Very rare book, signed or otherwise. By the one-time Hardy Boys illustrator. Gretter, who was also a philosopher and inventor, here takes on the subject of dreams. "Where do they come from? What are they? Why do we have them?" "Gretter relates his dream experiences and the powerful effect they had on his life. Dreams are a source of knowledge, a guide to action, yet cloaked in symbol. Not until he stumbled upon the key did their meaning become clear." That's called a tease. The covers of this book look fantastic, no exaggeration, no wear, no issues. Were it not for one issue I would rate this book Fine. The issue is a paper clip that left a darkened imprint at the top edge of the copyright page and on the top edge of the next five pages (6 in total, not 12). Otherwise those pages are perfect, as are all the others in the book. Bright, without a speck of soiling, no writing or markings, no creases. And the book is very solidly bound, no issues at all there. The Un-clipped dust jacket presents very well and has no loss, but on close inspection has a number of issues. The obvious one is the spot of soiling three quarters of the way down the front cover. There's also a little scuffing at the spine ends, although curiously there is no creasing or bending, a little scuffing also at the corners, rather minor. Lastly, there is darkening at the top of the rear flap, and a little at the top of the front flap. Also, there is light soiling or perhaps foxing at the top of the rear of the dust jacket, and a little near the spine. I'm doing a little 'micro-scoping' as it's not a cheap book, but take a look at the pictures and see what you think. Limited to 5 pics so contact me to see more. You can see for yourself the pricing and condition descriptions of the other copies for sale. I could just as well put the book up at a price close to theirs but I'm choosing to sell it for much less. Here's a little more on Clemens Gretter: Joseph Clemens Gretter lived a long and productive life, yet few readers knew him by anything other than his one word signature, "Gretta." The artist behind that signature was born on December 11, 1904, in the prairie country of western Indiana and grew up in Avery, Iowa. His schooling came at the Iowa Academy of Fine Arts, Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, and Art Institute of Chicago. His art career began in earnest in 1926 when he began drawing Hippity Skip Puzzles for the Chicago Tribune. During the lean years of the Great Depression, Gretter stayed busy illustrating series novels including the Ted Scott Flying Stories, the X Bar X Boys, the Air Combat Stories, and the Hardy Boys. He also made his way into comic books. In 1935, a former cavalryman and pulp fiction writer named Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson put together a 36-page, black-and-white, tabloid-sized comic book called New Fun Comics, the first comic book made up of all original material and the second newsstand comic book ever published. New Fun Comics #1 (Feb. 1935) marked several other firsts as well, including the first original science fiction feature for a comic book, "Don Drake on the Planet Saro." The author was Ken Fitch, the artist, Clemens Gretter. "Don Drake," probably inspired by Flash Gordon and Brick Bradford, ran in seventeen issues of New Fun and its successor, More Fun Comics, and even made the cover spot in April 1935. Gretter worked in comic books for many more years. His last known credited work showed up in Fatman, The Human Flying Saucer in 1967. Clemens Gretter continued as a cartoonist and illustrator after 1940. Between 1941 and 1948, he ghosted Ripley's Believe It or Not! He drew his own fact-based features, In This World and In Our Time, syndicated between 1953 and 1988. In semi-retirement, Gretter painted portraits and wrote two books, The Genius of Man and Chain of Reasoning (1978). He also invented a building panel and was granted a patent for it.

About the Author. Signed on half-title. Cover has some wear and soiling. Ink check marks on author entries on several pages. Willetta Heising is the author of DETECTING WOMEN and DETECTING MEN, award-winning reader's guides for series mysteries. She has been moderating author panels and speaking to book groups since 1995 and is president of the Detroit Chapter of the Women's National Book Association. She blames her obsession with series fiction on the Stratemeyer Syndicate, which brought us the exploits of Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys and countless others. She shares her ancestry, a tendency to micromanage, and her October 4th birthday with Edward Stratemeyer. This is a book about detecting women. The women who write crime fiction of all types. Police procedurals, private eye novels and traditional mysteries--with protagonists from all walks of life in every period of history, with settings around the world. Their detectives are men and women, old and young, gay, straight, black, white, married, single, widowed, divorced. With and without families, children, parents, siblings and companion animals. In short, they're all of us--the women who write and read mysteries. We want to know who they are, where they came from, what issues concern them, how they got to where they are now and what has affected their lives. This work was developed to respond to these interests. First Edition [stated]. 1995 Edition [stated]. Presumed first printing. Seller Inventory # 72543

About this Item: World O'Girls Books, San Francisco, 1991. Spiral-bound Cardstock. Condition: Near Fine. Second Edition. This book is a copy of "A Ghost in the Closet" by Mabel Maney. This copy was published in 1991 by World O'Girls Books using spiral-bound cardstock boards. This stated 2nd edition was SIGNED and numbered (as number 49 of 100) by Ms. Maney. This limited edition precedes the first trade edition published in 1995 by the Cleis Press. The book is in Near Fine condition. The stiff wrappers are bright and unmarked: just a hint of shelf wear is evident. The hinges and binding are solid; the pages are clean and unmarked except for the aforementioned author signature and numbering. Ms. Maney is a noted lesbian writer who has produced a number of these gay-themed Stratemeyer syndicate parodies. This book is a very funny dead-on spoof of the Hardy Boys. The front cover is a bit puzzling because it is a barely modified endpaper from the Tom Swift Jr. series (another Stratemeyer syndicate product). (cv_books) Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Signed by Author. Private Press. Seller Inventory # 000118

About this Item: 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.
