  • May We Borrow Your Husband? and Other Comedies of the Sexual Life – Graham Greene – First Edition – 1967

    May We Borrow Your Husband? and Other Comedies of the Sexual Life – Graham Greene – First Edition – 1967

    Published by the Bodley Head in 1967, a first edition.

    Octavo, 188 pages, with super dust jacket designed by Stephen Russ. Very good if not better condition with a fine complete dust jacket

    Greene twelve short stories – “Comedies of the Sexual Life” many of which rank among his best.

    The subtitle we are told not to be interpreted too narrowly … and we agree. Many different characters and settings, from the South of France to the Caribbean. The title piece is really super and packs in so much in just 40 pages. We also like the reality of “The Over-night Bag” and the Invisible Japanese Gentlemen

    Greene wit at its best .. makes a great and thoughtful gift.

  • Travels with My Aunt – Graham Greene – First Edition 1969

    Travels with My Aunt – Graham Greene – First Edition 1969

    Published by the Bodley Head, London a first edition in 1969.

    Octavo, 319 pages, decorative jacket designed by Stephen Russ. Very good condition albeit with a some tiny dust jacket chips around the spine top. Protected in Brodart as are all our dust jackets..

    Surely Graham Greene’s funniest book – as with many of his, the basis of a movie success. Parts of this appeared in Playboy!?

    Aunt Agatha travels with her young lover Wordsworth; Curran from the CIA gets involved; Visconti wanted by Interpol … caught up in all of this is Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager .. well its time they had a bit of fun.

  • Brighton Rock – Graham Greene – Scarce Australian First – 1944

    Brighton Rock – Graham Greene – Scarce Australian First – 1944

    First Australian edition published by Invincible Press printed by “Truth”. Published in 1944. Really scarce. Octavo, stapled 175 pages. Card covers in pink with black ink title and notes, repaired closed tear. Showing some age, covers but not text giving a bit at the staples. Still a pretty good copy given its obvious fragility. Cover design identical to the UK first.

    The Publisher summary on the front cover is taken from the Heinemann first UK edition of 1938 … “A story of murder and love, of guilt and faith, of the perpetual conflict between evil and good, Brighton Rock is one of the most powerful and exciting novels the publishers have handled” … and it certainly is …

    Many regard this as Greene’s greatest work. Being short in form he still regarded it as an “Entertainment” rather than a fully formed and sized novel.

    Dickie Attenborough starred in the first film adaptation … now recognised as a classic … Dickie was brilliant in the role of the central character

    The Honorary Consul – Graham Greene – First Australian edition 1973.

    Published by The Bodley Head in Australia, Sydney in 1973. A first Australian edition.

    Octavo, 335 pages one of Greene’s more substantial novels. A couple of scuffs to dust jacket now protected like all our books in removable Brodart, name on end paper, really a very good copy.

    Provincial Argentina, revolution in Paraguay and more than the usual array of unusual characters that inhabit a Greene novel.

  • The Tenth Man – Graham Greene – First Edition 1985

    The Tenth Man – Graham Greene – First Edition 1985

    Graham Greene wrote a script in 1944 – it surfaced in 1983 – unused. Greene published it as a novel (or an entertainment) for the first time in 1985 – this edition published by The Bodley Head, London.

    Tall octavo, 158 pages, a little sign of age, still a very good copy.

    A rather provoking story and seamlessly laid out. If you are inclined to blame, then this might be the one for you

    The Tenth Man – Could he be your reflection?

  • The Captain and the Enemy – Graham Greene – First Edition

    The Captain and the Enemy – Graham Greene – First Edition

    Greene’s last novel a First Edition published by Guild, London in 1988. Octavo, 189 pages. Very good if not better condition.

    A slightly strange one to end on … thought provoking, complex and much more than seems at first. Notwithstanding that comment the opening paragraph is a classic … too long to repeat here.

    Greene’s last but not least
