Publisher's light grayish brown cloth, lettered in purplish red; in the original pictorial blue dust jacket designed by Hans J. Barschel, with an illustration of a man falling from a window to the front board and spine, lettered in white and yellow.

Overall, a handsome copy. Bruccoli A3.1.a In The High Window, private investigator Philip Marlowe searches for the wealthy Murdock family's missing rare coin, the Brasher Dubloon. What seems to be a simple case turns into a complicated web of crime and deceit. In classic Chandler fashion, he keeps the reader guessing until the very end. This novel is also demonstrative of Marlowe's sensitivity underneath his tough exterior, which distinguishes him from similar hard-boiled detective characters such as Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op and Sam Spade. After uncovering the victimization of the Murdock family's secretary Merle, Marlowe makes a point to remove her from her harmful living situation.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Total War Battle Map.

      Winchester, MA. Ernest Dudley Chase. Copyright 1942. Color pictorial map, 15 x 35 1/4 inches, on sheet 16 x 36 1/2 inches. Professionally mounted on linen, minimizing abrasion to fold lines. SIGNED IN PENCIL AT LOWER LEFT by the artist. Light discoloration along right vertical fold. An inspirational World War II map of the world designed and published by Ernest Dudley Chase with poetical note at lower centre: A Battle Map, to set the stage For "total war" on land and sea; And, in the border, just a hint - A prayer - for total victory! In addition, the cartouche declares: "Certain Victory Will be Ours!" The five border vignettes feature 'A Yank Tank,' 'Coast Artillery,' 'Mobile Field Gun,' 'Flying Fortress' and 'New Anti Aircraft Gun Mounts by Westinghouse.' Germany and Japan are marked in black. There is extensive treatment of the Pacific Islands, a major battle field. It is signed in pencil by the mapmaker with his full name Ernest Dudley Chase (his maps were often signed E.D.Chase). This map is often seen with red accents (to the V signs in the border, in the vignette images at map edges, to the title lettering) which are not present on this copy. The blue coloration is also different in quality from other examples (here a deeper, brighter color) suggesting that there were different printings made of this iconic map, designed to inspire the patriotism of the American public.

        Duo for Violin and Piano

      National Blue Print Co., New York 1942 - 11 by 13-1/2 inches. An early printed edition of this work, issued on blue-print paper, reproducing Sessions' handwritten score (the commercially published edition appeared in 1947). Sessions was an important American 12-tone composer who won the Pulitzer Prize for music. First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in spiral-bound wrappers (paperback). Inscribed by Sessions in 1944 to Albert Elkus, who brought the composer to UC Berkeley, where Sessions taught for many years. A scarce book, with no copies of this 1942 edition on OCLC. A second version of the score (piano only - your cataloguer believes), printed on a single accordion-fold sheet, is laid in. This edition is also unrecorded. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
