        Death in the Clouds.

      London, Collins. 1935. - FIRST EDITION, INSCRIBED by the author to flyleaf "With Love from / Agatha." Pp.252 + 4 [advertisements]. Publisher's orange cloth titled in black, some light fading to the spine and the customary slight wear to extremities and spine ends. A little dusty to the top-edge. In a supplied second issue (i.e repriced at 3/6) wrapper, whicxh remains in a splendid degree of preservation, a trifle frayed at head of spine but resplendant with the vivid blues and bright white decoration that all too often are soiled and darkened by both the passage of time and repeated readings of stories that have become classics of the mystery genre. Altogether a lovely addition to any serious collection of Agatha Christie. In the book, Poirot is a passenger on board a flight from Paris to Croydon. Some time before landing, one of the passengers, Madame Giselle - a moneylender - is found dead. Initially, a reaction to a wasp sting is postulated, but Poirot spies the true cause of death: a poison-tipped dart, apparently fired from a blowpipe. It becomes apparent that the victim has been murdered. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A re-print, with a Preface, will be out shortly -- 25 cents a copy. H.M."" Financed by friends and printed by Lecram-Servant, the same printer who did Tropic of Cancer, this little book was an open appeal for money to send Alfred Perles to Ibiza in the Balearic Islands so he could write without disturbance. The second edition to which Miller refers in his inscription was published in June, 1938, and contained a two- page foreword by Miller."

        MOSS ROSE

      New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1935., 1935. First U. S. edition. Fine, bright, square copy in dust jacket with light wear to spine ends and corners. Complete with the original wraparound promotional band. Pseudonym of Gabrielle Margaret Vere Campbell. This is one of the author's many fascinating novels based upon actual murder cases using her own interpretations as to what actually happened and who was really guilty. MOSS ROSE is based upon an 1872 murder of a prostitute named Buswell, which was never solved. Belle Adair, is the young woman "of good birth and education but quite ruined in reputation," who knew the truth of what the police had to dismiss as "an unsolved mystery." "How she used her knowledge and silence and her power over the murderer to re-enter the society to which she had been born, and to lift herself from degradation, is the theme of Mr. Shearing's novel." Additionally the movie of the same name, a film noir selection, was issued in 1947 by Twentieth Century-Fox and directed by Gregory Ratoff. The film starred Peggy Cummins as Belle Adair aka Rose Lynton, Victor Mature, Ethel Barrymore, Vincent Price, Margo Woode, George Zucco, Patricia Medina, and Rhys Williams. 20th Century Crime & Mystery Writers says, "Although these are not feminist novels, they often show Victorian women bored by narrow interests, incapable of self-preservation, held down by male authority, and Shearing is very successful in establishing a tone of brutal sexuality without recourse to explicit detail. Yet many of her "strong" women, are unsympathetic, calculating, and manipulative." A selection of Kevin Johnson's THE DARK PAGE, and an exceptional copy. THE DARK PAGE p. 220 & 221.

        The Secret People

      London. Newnes. 1935, 1935. First Edition. 8vo. Dark blue pebble grain cloth with gilt titling to spine, . The pebble grained cloth would appear to be a variant (unless it is the same cloth as the elusive Ferret Fantasy copy, although that is described as vertically ribbed blue cloth; the fact that we differentiate between details to this degree is in some way an explanation as to why you never see rare book dealers dating supermodels or movie stars...or indeed out in daylight...or even dating). Not only is this copy near fine in previously unknown blue cloth, but it is also clad in a splendid example of its fabulously scarce dustjacket; bright, clean, fresh and unfaded with a 2cm closed tear to the front spine hinge and a 1cm wound to the lower-mid spine panel, coupled with some slight cosmetic edgewear. Altogether a lovely and extremely rare object. This is Beynon-better-known-as-Wyndham's first novel; a lost race extravaganza set in (oddly enough) 1964, with a suitably prescient touch Queen Elizabeth the Second sits upon the throne of England (she wasn't in line for succession in 1935), our hero is flying his 'strato-plane' across the Sahara with a feisty redhead and her cat...there's a crash, there are decadent underground pygmies (obviously!), giant mushrooms, the feisty redhead is worshiped as a goddess, oh, and Italy is planning to flood the Sahara in order to turn it into an inland sea. All in all it makes genetically engineered man eating plants seem tame by comparison.

        The Diary of Samuel Pepys M.A., F.R.S

      London - G. Bell and Sons, Ltd, 1935 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The famous diary of Samuel Pepys with extensive additional notes from Braybrooke and Wheatley, in a decorative set, uncommonly including the dustwrappers. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering and unclipped dustwrappers. Complete in Ten Volumes. Pepys is a persuasive companion, and because when he speaks directly to his reader he is so palpably honest, he can seem to have the right of every argument. There is a powerful personality at work here, but also great art. As a diarist he is simply the best there was, with the good fortune to be close to the centre of momentous events. He has the continuing compliment of countless imitators; he is commemorated in a good few hostelries, and in the activities of the club which bears his name. (DNB)Henry Benjamin Wheatley, 1838 - 1917, was a bibliographer and editor. Pepys was the subject of his private scholarship as well as his public work: in 1880 he published Samuel Pepys and the World he Lived in, which was later followed in 18939 by the fullest edition of the diary before the Latham one. (DNB)Condition: The bindings are generally tight and firm. The front inner hinges of volumes 5,6 and 7 is slightly strained but still firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight bumping with faint discolouration. The duswtrappers have chipping and small closed tears, with discolouration. The dustwrappers have large sections missing, prominent to the spine panels. There are pencil inscriptions to the front panel of volume 6. The dustwrappers ofvolumes 1 and 2 are missing.
