About this Item: Chatto & Windus, London, 1876. Condition: Fine. First edition. First edition, preceding the American edition by six months. A Fine copy in a Cosway-style binding (by Bayntun-Riviere) with a miniature painted by Stanley Hardy. All edges gilt, silk-moire end-papers, original cloth covers and spine bound into the rear. Minor wear to three of the bands now expertly and invisibly repaired. Otherwise without fault. Housed in a cloth slipcase.One of the classic American novels, Twain's bildungsroman follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer - and his friend Huck Finn -- in St. Petersburg, Missouri told with Twain's characteristic and unmatchable wit and humor. It would become his best-selling book and its sequel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," is arguably the greatest American novel of all time. "Mr. Samuel Clemens has taken the boy of the Southwest for the hero of his new book? and has presented him with a fidelity to circumstance which loses no charm by being realistic in the highest degree, and which gives incomparably the best picture of life in that region as yet known to fiction." (Contemporary Atlantic Monthly Review). Fine. Seller Inventory # 1695

About this Item: [FINLEY,MARTHA]. ELSIE DINSMORE by Martha Farquharson. NY: M.W. Dodd 1867. 12mo (4 5/8 x 6 7/8"), 288p., light purple embossed cloth, gilt decorative spine, previous owner's attractive gilt and leather book plate, slight soil on 1 page, a Fine copy in a custom leather backed box. 1st edition of the first book about Elsie Dinsmore whose series eventually ran up to 28 volumes. Despite some religious overtones and suggestions about the father's impropiety, the Elsie Dinsmore series became immensely popular. It is suggested that Elsie's longevity and success inspired Edward Stratemeyer to create his long living series including Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys and many others. In selecting this title for Peter Parley to Penrod, a bibliography of the best children's books, the bibliographer Jacob Blanck notes that he had seen only 2 copies of the first edition (p.26). Today it is rare, and outstanding copies like this can't be found. Seller Inventory # 39092

[vi], 358 pp.Pictorially bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe ca. 1980 in full red, blue, black and white oasis morocco, front cover with black morocco onlays and silver rule depicting a marksman and crosshairs, smooth spine lettered in silver,all edges silver, red, blue and white head- and tail bands, patterned red and black end-papers, original dust-jacketpreserved at end. Housed in the original full black morocco slipcase.Although the binding is unsigned it was specially commissioned by a collector who always used S & S.As a young journalist posted in Paris in the early 1960s, Forsyth had reported first hand from the scene of agenuine attempt by extreme right wing forces to assassinate President Charles de Gaulle on the Avenue de la Libération. It was this experience which inspired his 1971 novel, centered on anunnamed assassin, codenamed the "Jackal," who ingeniously plots a further threat to de Gaulle's life?Winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel, Forsyth's first thriller won immediate acclaim as "a strikingly successful thriller? It makes such comparable books as The Manchurian Candidate and The Spy Who Came In From The Cold seem like Hardy Boy mysteries" (New York Times). Drawing on events such as a 1962 assassination attempt on De Gaulle, made by Alain de Bougrenet de la Tocnaye, Forsyth returned from years as a war correspondent in Africa to write his novel "in just 35 days, a feat he describes as something 'not quite so crazy when you think of twelve pages a day, times that by thirty-five and there you go, there's your novel" (BBC). Basis for the popular 1973 film by director Fred Zinneman, starring Edward Fox. Preceded the same year by the English edition. Yaakov & Greenfieldt, 231. A fine signed copy. Seller Inventory # 04058

About this Item: London: David Nutt, 1913, 1913. Octavo. Original wrappers, titles in black to front. Housed in a green morocco backed bookform slipcase and chemise. Fine. First edition of Frost's first published book, wonderfully inscribed by Frost with a poetic quotation: "One had to be versed in country things, Robert Frost, for Crosby Gaige". Crosby Gaige (1882-1949) was a New York based publisher and theatrical impresario, who pioneered in the late 20s the production of fine press collections for living authors (which he described as "flowers for the living" as opposed to "garlands for the dead") such as Woolf (Orlando), Joyce (Anna Livia Plurabella), Sassoon and Hardy. Gaige was also a great epicure and frequenter of New York's finest supper clubs and cocktail lounges, and wrote several books on cookery and cocktails. The poetry collection A Boy's Will was the first published book of Robert Frost. He was then nearing 40 and, although he had written much, had not found a conducive publisher in America. He had moved to London in 1912, hoping to find the scene more receptive to new poetic voices, and, with the support of F. S. Flint and other sympathetic Imagists such as Ezra Pound, managed to secure a deal with David Nutt, who printed 1,000 copies of A Boy's Will. Only about 350 copies were issued by Nutt, who went bankrupt shortly after the war, and sold the remainder stock to Simpkin & Marshall. Frost in the meantime had returned to America at the outbreak of the war, and, bolstered by his London publication and its rave reviews penned by his Imagist friends, achieved the American beginning of his meteoric poetic career with an edition of A Boy's Will published by Henry Holt in 1915. The c.650 remainder copies of A Boy's Will were later issued in a variety of bindings. This copy is Crane's second issue, binding D with 4-petalled flowers and "Printed in Great Britain" stamped to the title page verso. It was the first American issue of Nutt's edition, sold by Dunster House, Cambridge, MA, from 1923. Crane notes at length that this US issue came about entirely through Frost's express efforts. In 1921 his friend J. W. Haines informed him that the remainder of this and his other early work, North of Boston, were in danger of being pulped. Simpkin & Marshall had sold fewer than 100 copies of A Boy's Will (Crane's second issue, Binding C). Frost responded by sending "all the money I can raise to buy in those poor old first editions of mine". Haines transported them to Cambridge, MA, where Frost found a bookseller in Maurice Firuski of Dunster House. A little over half of the 1,000 copies printed were thus issued by Dunster House, before the remaining 135 copies, in 1943, were bought by the Chiswick Book Store, New York, and issued as a latterly-signed and numbered limited edition. This copy, with its marvellous invocation of one of Frost's most redolent lines (from "The Need of Being Versed in Country Things", first published in 1920), is an excellent example of Frost's first published work. A Boy's Will was preceded only by the small collection Twilight, 1894, of which only two copies were printed and only one survives, housed in the University of Virginia. In the same library are to be found two Frost limited editions, New Hampshire and West Running Book, both inscribed to Crosby Gaige. Crane A2. Seller Inventory # 119670

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.

Appears this was a X-Library book at some point and there is still a card pocket in the back (with the removable card inserted still!). Binding is quite shaken and there is a spine lean. The book is a bit fragile to handle but for a 82 year old first printing that was used as a library book at some point, it's held up rather well. Glossy frontispiece intact but some webbing starting to show on the binding there (webbing also showing some on the back blank endpaper). Pages have a few soiled spots but overall very clean. Back of the book has 5 pages of advertisements including 29 Tom Swifts, 7 Don Sturdys, 10 Radio Boys tiTLes, 5 Garry Graysons and 5 Western Stories for Boys titles. Also the letter 't' in "talking" on page 31, line 12 is complete. A tough, tough book to locate and a cool part of Hardy history since it's the very first printing of the first title in the series.
