London: Chatto & Windus, 1913. First edition. Not published in the U.S. 32 pages of publisher's ads at rear, as called for [Harvey, A41]. In his entry for this book, Harvey quotes a letter from Ford effusing over YOUNG LOVELL as "a pretty big and serious historical work, rather like 'Fifth Queen' " but goes on to note that years later Ford himself omitted it from his list when proposing a collected edition of his works. Good only with evidence of damp stain to rear board, ads at rear darkened, covers showing some staining and wear, and light foxing on prelims and page edges.

THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. Ellen Glasgow. THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
New York: Doubleday, Page & Co. 1900. First edition, second printing per Kelly (pp.9-13) without publisher's device on title page and with battered type to "near the" on p.39:4 and very slightly to "warm" p.41:3. We'd say this copy is a mixed state but presume instead there is a typo on p.10 of Kelly's bibliography and the intended reading is "p.4 unrevised" (i.e., "the affability") and "p.360 revised" (i.e., "lost one colour"). Octavo green cloth stamped in dark green and white on front and spine and with photographic plate on front. About very good with name and address on pastedown, spine a little dulled and photographic plate a bit rubbed.

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.
