        Death on the Nile

      Collins, The Crime Club, London 1937 - 1st impression, 13 x 19cm orange cloth with black stamped titles to the spine, 284pp (4) publisher's advertisements. The spine is a little faded as is often the case with this book. The boards are a little marked mainly on the front which has 3 cup rings and a couple drip marks. The cloth has some rubbing particularly to the corners, two of which are rubbed through, and spine tips which have a little fraying at the head and three splits in the cloth of between 2mm and 1.5cm along the foot. The binding is firm and square. There are a couple of drip marks to the fore edge of the text block but these do not impinge inside the book, which is very clean and bright without spotting or finger marks. The only slight blemishes appear to be a neat ownership name to the front free endpaper, a corner crease and a 3mm closed tear to one page. In all, a very bright survivor of one of Agatha Christies most popular works. If you have any questions or require further images please do not hesitate to ask.

        The complete Hornblower:] The Happy Return (1937); A Ship of the Line (1938); Flying Colours (1938); The Commodore (1945); Lord Hornblower (1946); Mr Midshipman Hornblower (1950); Lieutenant Hornblower (1952); Hornblower and the Atropos (1953); Hornblower in the West Indies (1958); Hornblower and the Hotspur (1962); Hornblower and The Crisis (1967).

      London: Michael Joseph, 1937–67 - 11 works, octavo. Recent dark blue morocco, titles and gilt ship decoration to spines, single gilt rule to boards, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Some minor spotting to a few leaves, an excellent set. First editions, first impressions. Forester (real name Cecil Smith) was called to Hollywood to write a pirate film, working under Arthur Hornblower. However, before they had finished the script, another studio released Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn, and using the same historical incidents that they had counted on. Rather than seeking another position, hounded by the prospect of a paternity suit, Forester jumped aboard a cargo boat bound for home. Another passenger was the photographer Barbara Sutro. In the voyage, he took a one-day cruise around the Gulf of Fonseca in the ship's motor lifeboat, and by the end of the voyage he had a new novel worked out, The Happy Return, with its characters Hornblower, Bush, and Lady Barbara. Hornblower, with all his human indecisiveness and cross-grainedness, was Forester as he wished he had the courage to be, and Forester wrote about Hornblower again and again. This set includes his unfinished novel Hornblower and The Crisis. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

      London: Chapman & Hall 1937 - First edition, first printing, two of the first issue points called for by Smith: loose type in "holding" on p. 260 and "S. Veller" uncorrected on p. 342. Illustrations by Robert Seymour, Robert William Buss, and Hablot Knight Browne. Contemporary three-quarter tan calf with five raised bands and two spine labels, red and green, over mutli-colored marbled paper-covered boards, light brown endpapers, top edge stained brown, other edges speckled in red. Very good or better with some rubbing to boards, especially around spine and other extremities, plates with foxing as usual, text block generally clean, previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown. Overall an attractive copy. Smith I, 3. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club was originally published serially in twenty numbers, bound in nineteen monthly installments from April 1836 - November 1837. This first edition was published shortly after on November 17, 1837. The project was originally conceived by illustrator Robert Seymour, who envisioned a series of humorous stories about the adventures of amateur Cockney sportsmen. Chapman and Hall employed Dickens to create a cohesive narrative that provided a background story for the illustrations. However, the bold young writer purportedly wrote with little regard to the illustrations, even making suggestions for their alterations at times, much to Seymour's displeasure. After the second installment was completed, Seymour committed suicide and was replaced in the Pickwick project by Robert Buss. However, Dickens found Buss' work unfavorable, and Hablot Knight Browne ("Phiz"), who would continue to illustrate many of Dickens' subsequent novels, took over as the Pickwick illustrator. Smith comments on the complicated history of Pickwick's illustration: "The history of the creation of the plates is perhaps as complex as that of the printing of the text, and different states of a plate and different plates for the same subject may vary from one bound copy to another seldom, in fact, are all of the plates located in copies in the original cloth or rebound ones," which he partially attributes to the lack of a list of illustrations.

First edition of the carefully researched narrative of 'Britain's worst military defeat since the surrender of Cornwallis's army in 1781 during the American Revolutionary War ... The town of Kut in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, surrendered to the Turkish Army on 29 April 1916. The occupying British-led and mainly Indian Army force had been besieged for four months. 12,000 soldiers were taken into captivity and were to suffer almost as much as their countrymen did in different circumstances under the Japanese nearly thirty years later. There had been 3,776 casualties during the siege, 23,000 men were killed or wounded during the unsuccessful relief attempts and a further 4,000 were to die, subsequently, as prisoners. (online summary of Patrick Crowley's, Kut 1916. Courage and Failure in Iraq, 2009). Lady Neave (1880-1955) had been taken in her early years to Turkey by her father and lived there for 26 years. Her good Turkish connections helped her to gather information on the siege of Kut al-Amara on the banks of the Tigris.

Small smudge away from Mencken and his inscription and apparently part of the image. Few pencil notes on verso. Striking portrait of the master satirist and crusading journalist in Fine condition [Attributes: Signed Copy]
