        Nikola Tesla - Memorandum Book on the Occasion of His 80th Birthday

      520 pages. Black and white illustrations. Text in French, English, German and a fourth language which is presumably Yugoslavian. Some Russian may also be mixed in.

Printed on poor quality paper which has become embrittled, chipped and yellowed, particularly at extremities. Binding extremely fragile. Please Note: pages 6 through 10 missing.

Bishop William Mallory consults with Perry Mason about the statute of limitations in a manslaughter case that took place in California twenty-two years ago. Curiosity about the bishop's stutter prompts Mason to question the man's true identity, and he decides to launch an investigation of the manslaughter case. Mason learns that Julia Brownley, the woman charged in the case, is now desperately trying to prove that her daughter, whom she gave up for adoption, is actually the rightful granddaughter of wealthy businessman Renwold Brownley, and that the girl currently living in Brownley's home is an imposter. There is an enormous fortune at stake, and when Brownley is found dead, Julia becomes the prime suspect in his murder. An attractive copy of an elusive title.

        Journey Without Maps

      London: Heinemann, 1936., 1936. Tall 8vo. Publisher's lemon cloth, decorated and titled in brown to spine, illustrated map endpapers, top edge red.Text block clean, ink ownership (1936) to half-title, minor toning to extremities of binding. A clean, presentable copy of a most uncommon title. FIRST EDITION. Greene's first travel book. Several critics suggested that the author's trip to Liberia and the resulting published work mark a change both in his mind and in his fiction. Greene talks of how the journey to Africa is not just back into time or to beginings, but to a place where elemental power exists without modern sophisticated trappings. When Greene compares the African manifestations of that power with his dreams in the short section 'Mythology' (p.209), he suggests that evil united with Power is more a qualioty of civilization. A second travel book 'The Lawless Roads. A Mexican Journey' was published in 1939, which was followed by the Mexico-based prize-winning novel 'The Power & the Glory' in 1940, both of which bear close relation to Journey Without Maps.

        THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH

      Visionary Publishing Co, 1936, Hardcover, Book Condition: As New in As New dust jacket, First EditionFirst edition. [The precise state/issue/printing of this variant has not been clearly established. Nor, for that matter, has the exact priority been clearly established for nearly any of combination of variants that have been reported]. This is one of an unknown, but reportedly small, number of copies that surfaced years ago, from storage in the publisher's archives. The text paper is quite white and fresh, as is the paper stock of the Dust Wrapper. The the black cloth casing [that is, the boards] is consistent with most others that I have seen. Book and Dust Wrapper [white paper, without the Frank Utpatel artwork] both have horizontal, mixed case, silver lettering. 158 pages, illustrated. As New [About Fine] copy in As New [Fine] Dust Wrapper.
