RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE. Zane Grey. RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE.
New York: Grosset & Dunlap, Before 1918. An early reprint edition with illustrations by Douglas Duer and the frontispiece illustration reproduced as the dust jacket cover, as in the original Harper edition. SIGNED BY GREY in "Lackawaxen, Pa.," from where we understand he moved in 1918, so an early reprint. This title is considered by many critics to have played a significant role in shaping the formula of the popular Western genre. It tells the story of Jane Withersteen and her battle to overcome her persecution by members of her polygamous Mormon Church, a leader of which, Elder Tull, wants to marry her. Withersteen is supported by a number of Gentile friends, including Bern Venters and Lassiter, a famous gunman and killer of Mormons. It was made into a number of movies starting in 1918 with one starring William Scott and directed by Frank Lloyd; then again in 1925 with Tom Mix, 1931 with George O'Brien, 1941 with George Montgomery and on TV in 1996 with Ed Harris and Amy Madigan. This copy was OWNED BY THE MOVIE STAR AND BOOK COLLECTOR Jack Palance and has two bookplates attesting to this below Grey's signature. The book is very good with minor wear and the jacket has chipping and some tape on the outside across top inch of spine and extending onto the front and back covers. Still, scarce in any early jacket and signed by Grey. EARLY REPRINT SIGNED BY GREY.

BEAT THE DEVIL. James Helvick. BEAT THE DEVIL.
Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, (1951). First edition. A REVIEW COPY with slip laid in. Helvick was the pseudonym of Claud Cockburn, a noted British radical journalist. Born in Peking, China, in 1904, he was the scion of an aristocratic family--one of his ancestors was the British commander who ordered the burning of the White House during the War of 1812 and his cousin was the novelist Evelyn Waugh. The book was made into a 1953 film directed by John Huston, with the screenplay by Huston and Truman Capote, and starring Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones and Gina Lollobrigida. Huston intended it to be a tongue-in-cheek spoof of "The Maltese Falcon" (1941), also directed by Huston, and other films of Film Noir-style that Huston himself had pioneered (Wikipedia). Near fine with light rubbing to the cover, light bump to top front cover, and faint offset to the endpapers. In a dust jacket which is about an eighth-inch short. We've informed that at least one other copy with a little shorter jacket has been cataloged, so perhaps publisher produced (Graham Gateson reported cataloged by Bauman Books) Also minor edge rubbing and soiling, and a few shallow chips to the spine ends and corners. Cover art still clear and bright.

PRINCES OF THE NIGHT. Joseph Kessel. PRINCES OF THE NIGHT.
New York: The Macaulay Co. (1928). First American edition. Basis for the French movie "Nuits De Princes." Translated by Jack Kahane, writer and publisher who founded the Obelisk Press in Paris in 1929 after his publisher, Grant Richards, went bankrupt. Kahane mixed serious work with smut in his list of publications--he was able to take advantage of a legal loop-hole whereby books published in France in English were not subject to the censorship otherwise practiced at the time.The Obelisk Press published Henry Miller's TROPIC OF CANCER and other works which fellow publishers would not touch for fear of prosecution, among which were LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER and some of Joyce's works. Back cover has minor water stain, though not rippled, and there is a tiny insect hole at fore edge of 20 or so pages, otherwise the book is bright and near fine in price-clipped dust jacket with some water staining on verso resulting in some minor darkening showing through on front. Still, close to very good.
