An exceptionally beautiful example of a Victorian book emphasizing the importance of women role models and the variety of positions they held in society."In the history of the world, back to the remotest ages, there are passages at every stage of human progress which assert the influence of womankind upon the destiny of nations. Yet that influence seldom appears in a prominent position from being hid among the overwhelming events it has assisted in maturing. Nevertheless, it is acknowledged by the most eminent historians and biographers, that women have succeeded where men have failed, in developing some of the greatest… Read more

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1931. First American edition. Very Good +. A presentable copy of Hammett's fourth novel. Book Very Good + with the spine a bit toned and some spotting to the rear board; extremities a bit rubbed. Otherwise, internal contents are in excellent condition. Lacking the dust jacket.The Glass Key follows a gambler, Ned Beaumont, who gets in over his head when he becomes involved in a murder investigation. It is considered by many to Hammett's best work. It was a major influence on the hard boiled genre from one of its greatest practitioners. The book was adapted into a radioplay starring Orson Welles in addition to a well reviewed 1942 film with Veronica Lake, Alan Ladd, and Brian Donlevy. Writing in The Guardian, author James Ellroy said of the book: "The Glass Key is Hammett's last great work of fiction. It's a model of economical storytelling. It's sombre and invigorating in equal measure. It's a predator's vision of the American jungle, and a book with a deep and troubled… Read more

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1959. First American edition. Very Good/Very Good. A Very Good copy of the book with the spine well cocked, rubbing and fraying to the lower edge of the rear board and staining to the closed text-block on the upper fore-edge. In a Very Good dust jacket that has minor wear at the spine ends and a bit of soiling. But, here's the interesting part, this copy retains both prices on the front flap $2.95 (upper) and $3.00 (lower) and is stamped "Sep 23 1959" on the flap. In addition, "Copy #1" is written on the front end paper in ink. Our suspicion is that this was one of the publisher's file copies. The vast majority of these dust jackets are publisher clipped, usually on the upper flap, retaining the $3.00 price. The unclipped jacket offered here would be the true first state jacket. So few of these jackets remain that is seems likely that only the publisher file copies and a handful of other advanced copies given out before the publication date would have retained both… Read more

Jacket with slight rubbing to the front panel, a small chip at the lower front corner and one small tear with a tape repair on the verso. Overall a very clean and attractive example.Set in Georgia during the Civil War and Reconstruction, the novel follows the fall of the South and its gentility as experienced by Scarlett O'Hara, one of literature's most ruthlessly optimistic characters. More than a war story, Gone With the Wind is a reflection on humanity. "Mitchell carefully analyzes the nature of human resilience, and hold up hopefulness as the critical tool for getting through the worst of times" (The Guardian). Popular from its release and an almost-immediate best-seller, Gone With the Wind won the Pulitzer Prize the following year and would be transformed into one of the most iconic Hollywood golden-era films, starring Vivien… Read more
