1 Woolrich, Cornell (as William Irish) After-Dinner Story
Philadelphia Lippincott 1944 First Edition Cloth 
Near Fine in a Very Good- dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in brown and black. Pale green endpapers. 210pps. First Edition Stated. There is mild bumping and rubbing to the extremities and the pages, though vaguely yellowed, are immaculate: no apparent reading wear and no previous owner's markings. The binding is clean, square, and sound. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a loss of 1/4" - 1/2" at either spine-end. Smaller chips at the tips (and one amid the spine), rubbing wear along the gutters, and modest general edgewear with some creases and closed tears. A few of these flaws are tape-repaired from the inside. The original price is intact. Overall, an excellent copy of this difficult title in a flawed, though colorful dustjacket. The original price (2.00) is intact. ".In these six stories William Irish stresses the almost unbearable horror of man's inhumanity to man, the sheer awfulness of fate's perverse timing, the futility of man's struggle against his appointed destiny. 'After-Dinner Story', the title story of the volume, and 'The Night Reveals' both demonstrate man's vain striving against a personal and malevolent fate. In 'An Apple A Day' is told the story of a man who, desperately needing ten thousand dollars, unwittingly throws away five times the sum. 'Marihuana' emphasizes the loathsomeness of the cheap and evil girl who sets a hopped-up armed murderer loose in the city. Also includes 'Rear Window' and 'Murder-Story'." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
