The Prisoner of Zenda, Hope, Anthony (S C Roberts, Intro) & Donald Spencer
41 Hope, Anthony (S C Roberts, Intro) & Donald Spencer The Prisoner of Zenda
New York Heritage Press 1966 1st Edition Thus; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Donald Spencer 
In slipcase, looks never read.The Prisoner of Zenda (1894), by Anthony Hope, is an adventure novel in which the King of Ruritania is drugged on the eve of his coronation and thus is unable to attend the ceremony. Political forces within the realm are such that, in order for the king to retain the crown, his coronation must proceed. Fortuitously, an English gentleman on holiday in Ruritania who resembles the monarch is persuaded to act as his political decoy in an effort to save the unstable political situation of the interregnum. Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope (9 February 1863 8 July 1933), was an English novelist and playwright.[1] He was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels but he is remembered predominantly for only two books: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works, "minor classics" of English literature, are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance, works set in fictional European locales similar to the novels. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name. (wikipedia); Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 185 pages

New York Harpercollins Publishers 2002 0060194413 / 9780060194413 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed to Barb and Jeff and signed by author. Dust jacket now in Brodart mylar protective (clear) cover.From the author of the New York Times bestseller In Her Defense comes a riveting new thriller of betrayal and redemption in the nation's capital.Philip Barkley had come far enough in Washington to know where those proverbial bodies were buried, but not so far that he'd lie about it. In the capital, that was no-man's-land, and his fall from grace was swift.When personal tragedy accelerates his downward spiral, all that remains is his integrity, and it's the price of a fresh start. The disappearance of Senate Intelligence Committee aide Martin Green indicates a breach of national security. Senator Warren Young, the party's best chance to keep the White House, needs a credible report that the missing man was no spy. Barkley is required to oversee the investigation and deliver the "right" result.As the case progresses, the signs grow more troubling, and even an FBI agent isn't what she seems. The pursuit of Green leads across generations, a trail of deception and murder that began with a woman's fall from a Bronx rooftop almost fifty years earlier.Barkley's odyssey finally brings him to the door of a retired detective haunted by a case he never solved. Together, the two men seek justice -- and their own renewal. .; 1.3 x 8.9 x 6 Inches; 330 pages; p; Signed by Author

Looks new. Signed by Author on Title Page. Plastic Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. New York City, 1965: Two Manhattan prep school students, Carole and Naomi, make a pact to lose their virginity before graduation. Eddie, a slick Upper East Side dropout, is handsome, fatally charming, and more than willing to help the girls accomplish their goal. But on one bitterly cold holiday weekend in an isolated cabin deep in the Vermont woods, a horrifying twist develops in the plan. Before the night is over, a stomach-turning secret is sealed between friends, setting in motion a series of events that will have dire and far-reaching consequences.

Sweeping across decades, moving from New York to Vermont to California and back again, Lewis tells an utterly gripping, psychologically nuanced tale of friendship between two very different women, of the life-changing burden of a secret, the lies we tell others to save ourselves, and the lies we tell ourselves when the truth is too painful to accept.; (Author Signed); 1.3 x 9.6 x 6.2 Inches; 352 pages; Signed by Author

Head Tide, Lincoln, Joseph C.
48 Lincoln, Joseph C. Head Tide
New York D. Appleton & Company 1932 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Fair dust jacket 
Blue cover has minor spotting. Dust has chips and tears with both front and back flap repaired with tape but now in brodart protective cover. Has former owners book plate in front. JOSEPH C. LINCOLN, author of Head Tide an Appleton publication, was born in Brewster, Mass,, on Feb. 13, 1870. Brewster is a typical Cape Cod town, settled by the Pilgrims soon after the landing at Plymouth, and was named for Elder Brewster. But Mr. Lincoln's Cape Cod, as portrayed in his stories, couldn't be found on any map. "His" Cape Cod is not bounded by stilted lines of latitude nor formal lines of longitude. If it suits the purpose of his story to locate an inlet where nature has built promontory, to erect a village in place of woods and marshes, the author has "never hesitated to do so." "Head Tide" is, like the thirty-one volumes which have preceded it in the twenty-eight years since Lincoln's first novel, "Cap'n Eri," was published [1904], about a Cape Cod community, and it is, like most of the later novels, the story of the conflict between an "import" and the natives. "Head Tide" is a good, man sized story of a good man sized job faced with courage. By this time readers are not so completely bedazzled by the quaintness of Mr. Lincoln's characters as they were at first, for they have become accustomed after thirty-one volumes to the local dialect which drove the readers of "Cap'n Eri " into spasms of glee.

Signed by Author on Title Page. Looks new. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Critically acclaimed novelist and award-winning short story writer Michael Malone is the smart, literate, compassionate voice of the American south. His gift for crafting the great American comedy, as he did in Handling Sin, is matched only by his ability to create mystery novels ripped with tension, twists and humanity. A womans body has been found-murdered, mutilated, tagged and addressed to Lt. Justin Savile V and Police Chief Cuddy R. Mangum. Dubbed the "Guess Who Killer" by a voracious press, Hillston, North Carolina, has a serial killer on its hands. The media and the mayor demand answers while the city lives in fear. Savile and Mangum are being taunted and stalked. Worse, they have no leads. Plot driven in the classic sense of a bestseller, yet written with literary style and substance, First Lady is a novel you will want to read and savor yourself and share with a friend. Continuing the series begun with lauded novels Times Witness and Uncivil Seasons, Michael Malones return proves a thrilling success. ; 1.46 x 9.33 x 6.42 Inches; 448 pages; p; Signed by Author
