        The Heart of the Matter.

      The Viking Press, New York 1948 - First American edition of what many consider the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Bob Goldstein from Graham Greene Nothing under $200,000." Light wear, else near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The Heart of the Matter tells the story of a good man enmeshed in love, intrigue, and evil in a West African coastal town. Scobie is bound by strict integrity to his role as assistant police commissioner and by severe responsibility to his wife, Louise, for whom he cares with a fatal pity. When Scobie falls in love with the young widow Helen, he finds vital passion again yielding to pity, integrity giving way to deceit and dishonor—a vortex leading directly to murder. As Scobie's world crumbles, his personal crisis develops the foundation of a story by turns suspenseful, fascinating, and, finally, tragic. ''Graham Greene was in a class by himself.He will be read and remembered as the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety" (William Golding).

        The Second World War

      - London, Toronto, Melbourne, Sydney and Wellington - Cassell and Co, 1948. - London, Toronto, Melbourne, Sydney and Wellington - Cassell and Co, 1948 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A complete set of Churchill's most famous work. First edition, first impression. The Second World War is a history of the period from the end of the First World War to July 1945, written by Winston Churchill. It was largely responsible for his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953. Churchill labelled the moral of the work as follows: In War: Resolution, In Defeat: Defiance, In Victory: Magnanimity, In Peace: Goodwill. When Churchill assumed office in 1940, he fully intended to write a history of the war then beginning. He said several times: I will leave judgements on this matter to history but I will be one of the historians. To circumvent the rules against the use of official documents, he took the precaution throughout the war of having a weekly summary of correspondence, minutes, memorandum and other documents printed in galleys and headed Prime Minister's personal minutes. These were then stored at his home for future use. As well, Churchill actually wrote or dictated a number of letters and memoranda with the specific intention of placing his views on the record for later use as a historian. These arrangements became a source of controversy when The Second World War began appearing in 1948. Churchill was not an academic historian, he was a politician, and was in fact Leader of the Opposition, still intending to return to office, so his access to Cabinet, military and diplomatic records, which was denied to other historians, was questioned. Churchill's privileged access to documents and his unrivalled personal knowledge gave him an advantage over all other historians of the Second World War for many years. With many folding maps, and several illustrationsthroughout the text. Theseworks had enormouspopularity in both Britain and the United States. While Churchill's name appears on the book's cover as the author, he did not write the book alone: it was put together by young researchers. The Second World War, particularly the period between 1940 and 1942 when Britain was fighting with only the support of the Empire and a few Allies, was the climax of Churchill's career and his personal account of the inside story of those days is unique and invaluable. Four of the volumes feature their original unclipped dustwrapper. Complete in six volumes. Condition: In original cloth bindings with four original unclipped dustwrappers. Externally, dustwrappers are bright, although with chipping, closed tears, and occasional loss. Cloth has some damp staining. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and generally clean, aside from a few instances of light marks to the textblock edges, and the odd handling mark. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEEDwithFAIR dustwrappers.

        LE GRANT TESTAMENT DE FRANÇOYS VILLON illustré et gravé par Schem.

      A Paris, aux dépens de l'artiste, s.d. (1948) - Curiosa : Le grant testament de Francoys Villon illustré par Schem (Raoul Serres). Exemplaire de tête avec dessin original et suite. Françoys VILLON - SCHEM (Raoul SERRES) illustrateur LE GRANT TESTAMENT DE FRANÇOYS VILLON illustré et gravé par Schem. A Paris, aux dépens de l'artiste, s.d. (1948) 1 volume in-4 (33 x 25 cm), en feuilles, 136-(1) pages. Emboîtage de l'éditeur (légèrement passé et frotté). Livre en très bon état. Dos de la couverture illustrée rempliée légèrement et partiellement bruni, petite fente à un mors, sans gravité. 1 eau-forte en couverture, 54 (55 en réalité) gravures au total tirées sur les presses des Ateliers d'Art Desjobert. Typographie en deux tons de l'imprimerie La Ruche. ÉDITION DE BIBLIOPHILE IMPRIMÉE A 320 EXEMPLAIRES SEULEMENT. CELUI-CI UN DES 46 EXEMPLAIRES SUR GRAND VÉLIN DE RIVES AVEC UN DESSIN ORIGINAL ET UNE SUITE AVEC REMARQUE (18 estampes à mi-page avec remarque au bas). Belle et ample illustration libre de SCHEM alias Raoul Serres. Raoul Serres (1881-1971) signait ses oeuvres érotiques du pseudonyme Schem. Son illustration à caractère pornographique des œuvres du Marquis de Sade fait scandale en 1936, il adopte alors le pseudonyme « Schem » pour ses dessins licencieux. Les oeuvres de cet artiste au trait très assuré et imaginatif sont aujourd'hui très recherchées. Le testament facétieux et satirique, où Villon qui n’a rien parle comme un homme très riche et imagine les legs les plus comiques aux gens qu’il déteste, ne commence qu’au vers 793. Une première partie, souvent appelée les Regrets, exprime un jugement sur lui-même (il est seul, pauvre, prématurément vieilli) et sur son passé, une méditation poignante sur la vie et la mort. Ce volume contient Les Lais et le Testament et les Ballades. La pagination annoncée à la justification semble erronée, le volume apparaît complet tel que présenté. BON EXEMPLAIRE AVEC UN JOLI DESSIN ORIGINAL REHAUSSÉ AU CRAYON DE COULEURS. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

First edition, first printing, preceding the UK edition by a year. A collection of 12 essays, most having already appeared in various journals.

      [Los Angeles]: Paramount Pictures, Inc., 25 February - 8 November 1948.. [Los Angeles]: Paramount Pictures, Inc., 25 February - 8 November 1948.. [3],130 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only of white, light blue and dark blue stock. Punched and bradbound. A few minor corner creases, a couple of erasures and a small ink script number on cover leaf, but a very good copy. A "Final White Script" of Hume and Maibaum's adaptation to the screen of Fitzgerald's novel by way of Owen Davis's dramatization. Subsequent dated revises on two shades of blue paper mark further revisions, including a November rewrite of seven of the last eight pages. This version is the first sound, and the first surviving rendering of THE GREAT GATSBY to the screen, as the 1926 silent Famous Players production is a lost film. Elliott Nugent directed this production, and it starred Alan Ladd as Jay Gatsby, Betty Field and Barry Sullivan as Daisy and Tom Buchanan, MacDonald Carey as Nick Carraway, Ruth Hussey as Jordan Baker, Shelly Winters as Myrtle Wilson, et al. This adaptation, and particularly Alan Ladd's performance, have been praised for the dominance of mood and noirish elements over reliance on a manufactured reconstruction of '20s glitter in the portrayal of Gatsby. The release time of the finished film was 92 minutes, and this script, at 130 pages, suggests that there were likely significant cuts and differences between this draft and the final film, which saw release in July of 1949. An uncommon and important screenplay. BRUCCOLI 7.8.

        Road Through the Wall, The

      New York: Farrar, Straus, 1948. New York: Farrar, Straus, 1948. First Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine+/Fine-. First Edition of the author's first book. Small 8vo: [8],271,[1]pp. Publisher's coarsely woven tangerine cloth, spine lettered in white, pictorial dust jacket priced $2.75. Near Fine or better (lightly shelf-worn; pages toned, as usual; edges spotted) in a bright, about Fine jacket (flap edges slightly dust-soiled and browned). This, Jackson's neglected first novel, "deserves much more interest than it has hitherto received, not least because it anticipated the most prominent themes and settings of the wave of suburban-related fiction that appeared during the post-war period by several years. Jackson evoked the self-absorption and casual cruelty of the middle-class suburbs in a manner that would seldom be bettered, particularly because her focus is mostly upon the children of the neighbourhood, who in their petty rivalries, snobbishness and strict hierarchy, are mirror images of their self-satisfied parents."

With a few stray scuff marks in the black background. With bevelled edges; very clean and tight throughout. Top edges gilt; on heavy deckle-edged paper. This is the special limited edition: "This edition is limited to 1,426 copies, of which 1,401 are for sale. This is number 901.The "Facsimile of the D-Day Order of the Day" is not present. With spreading map endpapers: "Festung Europa, June 6, 1944" (front); and "The Mediterranean Under Axis Domination" (rear). A very handsome copy of the limited edition, unsigned by Eisenhower. "Five-star General Dwight D. Eisenhower was arguably the single most important military figure of World War II. For many historians, his memoirs of this eventful period of U.S. history have become the single most important record of the war. Crusade in Europe tells the complete story of the war as Eisenhower planned and lived it. Through his eyes, the enormous scope and drama of the war—strategy, battles, moments of fateful decision—become fully illuminated in all their fateful glory. Yet this is also a warm and richly human account. Ike recalls the long months of waiting, planning, and working toward victory in Europe. His personal record of the tense first hours after he had issued the order to attack—and there was no turning back—leaves no doubt of Eisenhower's travail and reveals this great man in ways that no biographer has ever surpassed."
