AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY. Theodore Dreiser. AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY.
New York: Boni & Liveright, 1925. First edition. The trade edition in two volumes, as issued. Precedes the limited edition by a year. Much scarcer in nice condition, in our experience, than the limited. One of Dreiser's most acclaimed books. Made into the 1931 film of the same name and 1951's, "A Place in the Sun," starring Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor and Shelley Winters. This enduring classic is a Haycraft-Queen title and on Time Magazine's 100 Best Novels list. Based on the notorious 1906 murder of 20-year-old Grace Brown. Chester Gillette, who claimed Brown's death was accidental, was convicted of her killing in a trial that drew international attention. (Wikipedia) Bright and fine in bright dust jackets much nicer than usually seen. The jacket on volume one with chip at base of spine filled in but otherwise both jackets are very nearly fine. In the original gray paper-board slipcase with printed paper label pasted to one side. Slipcase shows general wear and minor repair to hinges but is still quite good. Scarce in original slipcase and this nice condition. MUCH SCARCER IN THIS NICE CONDITION THAN THE LIMITED.

THE FINANCIER: A Novel. Theodore Dreiser. THE FINANCIER: A Novel.
New York: Boni & Liveright, 1927. A completely revised edition of his third book. INSCRIBED, "For Brills son Edmund from Theodore Dreiser 1928." The first of the trilogy on Frank Cowperwood, a financier and businessman during an epic period of American history, from the Civil War through the end of the century. Dreiser based the character on Charles T. Yerkes, a traction magnate who had a well-documented and colorful career as an organizer of companies, an art collector and womanizer. Dreiser is still considered a trailblazer in our literature for his honest treatment of American life and the vagaries of human nature. The latter, of course, caused him many problems with the critics of the time. The book is a little cocked and cover has a small mark on bottom right corner, otherwise very good to fine, clean, bright copy. Lacking dust jacket. INSCRIBED BY DREISER.

THE COUNT OF MONTE-CRISTO. Alexandre Dumas. THE COUNT OF MONTE-CRISTO.
M. Valentin. New York: Burgess, Stringer and Company, 1846. First U.S. edition. Two volumes in one, as issued, freshly re-bound in three-quarter leather over marbled boards. This famous tale of revenge and retribution, of which the publisher said "his African blood is warm, and in his pages we accordingly discover the glowings of a heart gushing with feeling....," was inspired by Dumas' own Haitian-born father, an enslaved black man. Two editions were published in the U.S. in 1846; the other being in Boston. Though no known priority has been established, the bibliographies available to us (F.W. Reed, London: 1933 and Douglas Munro, New York: 1978) list only this one and we therefore believe it to be the first. Further, Reed's bibliography states an American reprint was issued the same year as the Burgess, Stringer edition, "but with plates so badly printed as to be almost caricatures of the original." Both the New York and Boston editions are based on the Chapman & Hall, London edition of the same year and include 12 of the 20 M. Valentin illustrations, as called for. [Rusty Mott of the bookselling firm Howard S. Mott, Inc., kindly pointed us to an 1847 ad in Marguerite Blessington's MARMADUKE HERBERT for this book; the ad states, "The work is published in one large Volume, likewise in two Volumes:--in either form it is sold at One Dollar, accompanied by Twelve splendid engravings"]. The Boston edition has appeared twice at auction (in 1940 & 1997). There are NO AUCTION OR SALE RECORDS of this New York edition and only a handful of copies in libraries worldwide making it AN ACTUAL RARE BOOK. Pages a little age-darkened and light foxing or staining, primarily to margins, throughout. Still textually good to very good with the binding being quite fine. A TRULY RARE BOOK.
