        The Battle For Investment Survival.

      New York: Hurry House Publishers, 1953. Second edition. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Signed by Gerald Loeb on the front free endpaper. The second edition was expanded by 18 chapters and is the preferred edition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare signed. In The Battle for Investment Survival, the goal is to preserve your capital at all costs, and to win is to "make a killing without being killed." Originally written in 1935, The Battle for Investment Survival treats investors to a straightforward account of how to profit--and how to avoid profit loss--in what Loeb would describe as the constant tug-of-war between rising and falling markets. "Most of today's advisors are telling us to diversify into stocks, bonds, foreign stocks, and perhaps gold, to spread the risk; Loeb tells us to put all our eggs in one basket, and watch the basket" (John Rothchild).

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1953. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Light dampstaining to a few of the back pages, near fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with a few small closed tears and light wear. Casino Royale was written by Ian Fleming in Jamaica over a period of around two months, largely from his own experiences and imagination; he also devised the artwork for the cover. "Within the first few pages Fleming had introduced most of Bond's idiosyncrasies and trademarks, which included his looks, his Bentley and his smoking and drinking habits. The full details of Bond's martini were kept until chapter seven of the book and Bond eventually named it "The Vesper", after Vesper Lynd" (Andrew Lycett). It has been filmed twice as a feature film, the first being the 1967 spoof starring David Niven, and later as the twenty-first official Bond film starring Daniel Craig as James Bond.

        Medical Jurisprudence and Toxicology.

      Edinburgh and London: E. & S. Livingstone Ltd.,, 1953. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in silver. With the dust jacket. 234 photographs to the text of which 88 in colour. A fine copy in the very gently spine-sunned dust jacket. Ninth edition, revised reprint. Presentation copy, inscribed by the original author's son and academic successor, also named John, "To Erle Stanley Gardner. With grateful appreciation of his sustained kindnesses. John Glaister. 17th February, 1953". Originally published in 1902, "Glaister's was the first British textbook to use photographic evidence to illustrate violent death and other aspects of forensic medicine, each further edition amplified by his latest cases. In court his textbook was often quoted back at him by defence counsels, notably the eminent Craigie Aitchison" (ODNB). It went through five editions before his death in 1932, with further editions produced by his son, who had succeeded him to the Regius Chair of Forensic Medicine at the University of Glasgow. "One of the biggest fans of Glaister's monumental treatise was the American crime novelist Erle Stanley Gardner, who regularly scoured its pages for plot ideas, background research, and fact checking. In 1964 Gardner repaid the debt in some measure by dedicating his book 'The Case of Horrified Heirs' - loosely based on the Buck Ruxton case - to the eminent scientist" (Evans, Murder Two: The Second Casebook of Forensic Detection, p. 93). Gardner in fact went as far to identify Glaister as the direct inspiration for criminal defence lawyer Perry Mason, the creation upon whom his reputation rests: a superb association.
