1 Cain, James M. Cain X 3
New York Knopf 1969 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good+ in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt; the front panel in metallic green. Octavo. viii + 465pps. New Inrtoduction by Tom Wolfe. First Collected Edition (not to be confused with the much more common book club issue: there is no book club slug on the rear panel). There is mild bumping to the spine-ends and faint touches of dustspotting to the fore-edge. Also, the publisher's red 'H' stamp (remaindered?) is on the ffep. Otherwise clean, bright, and soundly bound. No previous ownership markings. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has modest general edgewear and a light touches of soiling. A nice, collectible copy. Assembles three of Cain's classic novels: 'The Postman Always Rings Twice,' 'Mildred Pierce,' and 'Double Indemnity.'

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.

2 Cain, James M. Three of a Kind : Three Short Novels
New York Blakiston / Knopf 1944 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Pebbled red boards. The spine is stamped in gilt; the front panel in blind. Octavo. Red topstain. [xv] + 327pps. There is mild rubbing and bumping to the tips and the spine-ends, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a small abrasion at the top of the front panel and modest general edgewear. A very nice copy of this early omnibus edition. Includes 'Career In C Major,' 'The Embezzler,' and 'Double Indemnity.'

"...Like his great successes, 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' and 'Serenade' -- like almost everything he has written -- these stories deal with violent deeds and violent emotions. Passion and murder are their materials, and they are presented with the amazing skill that makes any Cain story an adventure in suspense. They are indeed three of a kind -- and every one of them an ace..."
