2 Greene, Graham The Labyrinthine Ways
New York Viking 1940 First American Edition Hardcover 
Very Good in the publisher's mustard yellow cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in blue. Blue topstain. 301pps. No dustjacket. This copy is the quite scarce first printing (March, 1940), first-issue, with pages 165 and 256 transposed (page 165: '.A voice said.'). There is light soiling and sunning to the cloth with rubbing wear to the tips and the spine-ends. Also, there is browning to the pastedowns -- particuarly at the gutters -- due to the binder's glue. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The text is in excellent condition. No previous ownership markings. Originally published in England as 'The Power and The Glory'.

"...Mr. Tench went out to look for his ether cylinder: out into the blazing Mexican sun and the bleaching dust. A few buzzards looked down from the roof with shabby indifference: he wasn't carrion yet. A faint feeling of rebellion stirred in Mr. Tench's heart, and he wrenched up a piece of the road with splintering fingernails and tossed it feebly up at them. One of them rose and flapped across the town: over the tiny plaza, over the bust of an ex-president, ex-general, ex-human being, over the two stalls which sold mineral water, towards the river and the sea. It wouldn't find anything there: the sharks looked after the carrion on that side. Mr. Tench went on across the plaza."


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.
