THE HORSE'S MOUTH. Joyce Cary. THE HORSE'S MOUTH.
London: Michael Joseph Ltd. (1944). First edition. The third volume in his trilogy (first two volumes were HERSELF SURPRISED, 1941, and TO BE A PILGRIM, 1942). HORSE'S MOUTH follows the adventures of Gulley Jimson, an artist who exploits his friends and acquaintances to earn a quid. Made into a 1958 movie with script by Cary and Alec Guinness, starring Guinness and Kay Walsh. Very good in red cloth; in dust jacket with long tears along front spine fold and front flap fold backed with tape, front panel a little wrinkled and few small chips and closed tears. Still, a presentable example of this scarce jacket.

THE ICE KING. Daniel Casolaro. THE ICE KING.
Ardmore: Whitmore Publishing, (1981). First edition of his only book, a novel about mountain climbing. Full-page, intimate INSCRIPTION: "To a beautiful girl - - -." The author was an American freelance writer who came to public attention in 1991 when he was found dead, his wrists slashed 10-12 times, in a bathtub in a room in the Sheraton Hotel in Martinsburg, West Virginia. A note was found, and the medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. However, his death became controversial because his working notes suggested he had traveled to Martinsburg to meet a source in connection with a story he had dubbed "the Octopus," which centered around a sprawling conspiracy theory involving an international cabal. Fine in dust jacket with few small chips on corners. Unaccountably scarce--and we would guess rare signed.

APRIL TWILIGHTS. Willa Cather. APRIL TWILIGHTS.
Boston: Richard G. Badger, The Gorham Press, 1903. First edition of her first book; a "vanity press" production of thirty-six poems. Cather reportedly destoryed what remained of the edition in 1908. INSCRIBED, "Mr. J. W. Rankin / From an old friend / Willa Silbert Cather / New York / May Second / 1914." Cather moved to Pittsburgh in 1896 and taught at Central High School for one year. Rankin also taught there, and we assume that is where they formed their friendship. (She moved on to Alleghany High School in 1897 where she taught English and Latin, and became the head of the English department. She left Pittsburgh in 1906.) Recased with the original paper-covering laid down and with the original printed labels retained. Both labels are darkened, the front appears to have had the lettering touched up, and the spine label has been mounted upside-down (with the lettering running down instead of up) and slightly beneath its original location. Not ideal but quite scarce inscribed. HER SCARCE FIRST BOOK, INSCRIBED.
