1 Spillane, Mickey Black Alley
Pennsylvania The Franklin Library 1996 First Edition SIGNED by the Author
In Near Fine condition. Bound in full burgundy leather, lushly gilt-stamped on all sides. Raised bands on the spine. All page-edges gilt. Octavo. Marbled endpapers and a sewn-in red ribbon bookmark. 234pps. No dustjacket, as issued. The head of the spine is very mildly rubbed and there is a slight crease at the top edge of the first three preliminary pages. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. SIGNED by the author exclusively for members of the Signed First Edition Society on a limitation page. Includes a color frontispiece by Nick Gaetano specially commissioned by The Franklin Library. Also, an Introduction by Spillane that is not included in the trade edition.

"...Yes, Mike Hammer is back, and in deeper trouble and darker danger than ever before. He has the gunning down of an old army buddy to pay back with interest. He has two generations of the most powerful family in the Mafia to beat at their own gory games. He has a missing chunk of vital memory blown out of his head by a bullet in his guts. And above all, he has a missing cache of $89 billion to find in a slick maze of false clues, phony stories, brutal betrayals, and deadly twists and turns, before the bad guys get their hands on it and their sights on him. And to complicate matters, the Feds have dealt themselves into the game, eager to beat everybody else to the loot. On his side, against this awesome array of evil, he has only his beautiful, loving, and when necessary lethal secretary, Velda. Plus a pair of rock-hard fists. And his old reliable companion, his well-oiled .45. Yes, Mike Hammer is definitely back with the kind of action and excitement that only he delivers. Which is another way of saying that fans of the greatest of hard-knuckled heroes are once again in the hands of the grand master, Mickey Spillane, at the very top of his form..."

2 Spillane, Mickey Day of The Guns : Introducing Tiger Mann, Master of Counterespionage
New York Dutton 1964 First Edition, First Printing 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full salmon-colored cloth. The spine is stamped in black. Octavo. 192pps. Stated First Edition. There is mild rubbing to the spine-ends and a small store price-label is affixed to the front pastedown. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is rubbed along the folds and has light wear at the extremities; the original price is intact. A very nice copy.

"...Tiger Mann doesn't start out on a Communist-hunting assignment. He is just eating lunch with a columnist friend when his attention -- and that of everyone else in the restaurant -- is caught by the arrival of an outstandingly beautiful girl. The columnist identifies her as Edith Caine, an English girl of fine heritage and equally unusual abilities as a U.N. translator. But Tiger knows better: he recognizes her as Rondine Lund, an Austrian who was a Nazi spy during the war. Tiger had been in love with her -- had even saved her life. She had repaid him by shooting him and leaving him for dead.
Now Tiger is determined to get even -- to kill Rondine in his own good time -- after he finds out what she is up to at the U.N. For Tiger, it is largely a personal vendetta. But the secret organization behind Tiger wants him for a bigger mission: to stop a major Communist conspiracy..."

4 Spillane, Mickey Kiss Me, Deadly
New York Dutton 1952 First Edition Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
Very Good in a Very Good dustjacket. Brown tweed boards. The spine is stamped in silver; the front panel in blind. Octavo. 251pps. Stated First Edition. There is slight rubbing wear to the tips and the spine-ends and some of the silver stamping has been flecked from the spine. There is a faint abrasion near the bottom of the ffep., as if a label has been neatly removed. Otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has touches of rubbing: particularly at the extremities and along the folds; there are a couple of crinkles in the rear panel and a remnant of tape on either flap. The original price is intact. SIGNED and inscribed by the author to the original owner with 'Mike tangles with a platinum blonde for a change -- good to see you and best of luck.' ".The blonde dame was close enough to death without jumping in front of Mike Hammer's car. Of course, she didn't know who was driving or she would have known he would pick her up. Berga Torn had escaped from a sanitorium with nothing on but a loose coat, and she gave Mike trouble from the start. Running a police road-block, Mike's car is run off the road by a gang of thugs who kill Berga and think they have killed Mike. Nothing could be farther from the truth. When Mike regains consciousness and learns what has happened, nothing will stop him until he has brought to justice -- his, Mike's particular kind of justice -- the ones responsible. He knows the people who worked him over are just the tools of those higher up. Mike learns how much higher up those names are when the F.B.I. steps in."

He's the kind of bad news you steer clear of -- unless you're a woman. The Hood knows his way around the corruption jungle, and he's met all the animals -- from two-bit killers and strung-out hookers to the biggest czars in the International Syndicate. Now he's hired out to the cops for the highest price the Department's ever paid: carte blanche to kill...

7 Spillane, Mickey My Gun Is Quick
New York Dutton 1950 First Edition Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Very Good- dustjacket. Gray boards. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in red. Octavo. 250pps. Stated First Edition. The spine is slightly sunned and there is a small abrasion, as of a price-erasure, in the upper corner of the ffep. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has moderate chipping at the spine-ends (and a small one at the top of the rear panel), a tear extending upward about 1 1/2" from the bottom of the front flap-fold, and modest touches of rubbing and soiling; the original price is intact. Quite a nice, presentable copy -- scarce in jacket -- of Spillane's second novel (following 'I, The Jury'). Filmed in 1957 by United Artists, starring Robert Bray as Hammer.

"You had better buy this one right now, while you're standing here. This way you have it. If you start to read it here you won't be able to put it down and the chances are you don't have the time to spare right now to finish it here. When you get home you're still going to be thinking about it; by the time you get back in tomorrow to pick it up it may be gone. "You may never have heard of me before so I'll tell you I'm Mike Hammer, a private eye, or detective (it depends on how you look at those things), and I don't operate in what is generally known as 'the better places.' But I am a guy of action, and I DO have ideas of my own, try as some people will to do me out of them. "I don't make a habit of hanging around the not-so-fancy houses, the bars and the other joints down in the Bowery and the dirty little side streets and alleys off Third Avenue but my work does take me down there quite a lot. I don't make a steady diet of rescuing dames on the loose, either, but I even have to do that once in a while, too. I know my way around in this world, particularly in the less generally well-known parts of it. "If you want to take the nite off from some of your own more routine activities, buy this, come on with me and I'll take you down there below Delancey Street and introduce you to some of my acquaintances (a lot of them don't live long enough to become real friends) and I promise I'M not giving you a bum steer. And remember, My Gun Is Quick. -- Signed, Mike."

"...'They had left him for dead in a pool of blood in his own bedroom, his belly slit open like gaping barn doors, the hilt of a knife wedged against his sternum. But the only trouble was that he had stayed alive somehow, his life pumping out, managing to knock the telephone off the little table and dial me. Now he was looking up at me with seconds left and all he could do was force out the words, Mike there wasn't no reason.'
But that was the reason that Mike Hammer had to find the murderer. For who would want to kill a nobody like Lippy Sullivan and why?
Before Mike finds out the answers, he is running interference for the CIA, and he learns more than is good for him about germ warfare, the TV industry, and a certain blonde with eyelashes painted around her navel..."

10 Spillane, Mickey The Death Dealers : A Tiger Mann Mystery
New York Dutton 1965 First Edition Cloth 
Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Bound in full red cloth. The spine is stamped in black. Octavo. 190pps. Stated First Edition. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings.

"The third adventure of Tiger Mann calls upon the master of counterespionage to act as thoroughly unofficial protector of a visiting Arabian king. The result is a series of colorful and exciting incidents that make for a true Tiger Mann special, bound to please his many fans and all who want a story of international intrigue told at a machine-gun pace. The U.S. is courting the visiting ruler because an oil reserve has been discovered in his country -- and the U.S. has a special process for extracting the oil. The Communists want the king, too, but they prefer him dead -- with blame for the death placed on our government. So Tiger through his supersecret organization has to outwit the top Communist agent of the Far East, counteract Communist propoganda being fed the king, entertain the monarch's beautiful fiancee -- and still keep his own faithful Rondine placated."

"Deep was back in town after a twenty-five year exile -- to inherit an empire and avenge a death. He and Bennett had made the inheritance pact when they were kids -- blood brothers in crime. They had known then that even New York was too small for them both to share, and so they had tossed a coin to determine who would stay and who would build his organization in another town. Deep had lost and gone. But now Bennett has lost -- been murdered in his own home -- and Deep is ready to prove he is strong enough to take over. Deep wants Bennett's killer; the others want Bennett's job. And all too many of them -- including the beautiful Irish -- want Deep dead."

Otherwise clean, bright, and soundly bound. No previous ownership markings. SIGNED and inscribed by the author to a previous owner on the inside of the front cover.

"...Morgan's bride was beautiful, seductive, and too sexy to hide it. But the deal was strictly hands off.
Kim Stacy was an Intelligence agent assigned to accompany Morgan on his rescue-raid to Latin America. Morgan had pulled a forty-million-dollar robbery, smashed out of a maximum security jail, and the State Department wanted a watch-dog on him. Therefore the wife.
The proposition was this: Morgan would agree to crash a dictator's granite fortress and bring back a U.S. scientist alive -- or go to jail.
Morgan was the only man in the country who could do the job -- but Kim Stacy wasn't the only woman who had her hot eyes on Morgan the Raider, and that spells trouble for any man -- even Morgan!..."

14 Spillane, Mickey The Last Cop Out

SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the half-title page. ".'the sub-chieftain of East Side prostitution died on silken sheets in a high rise apartment building whose door he thought was absolutely pick-proof. Nobody heard a shot. Nobody saw an intruder.' With that, Spillane's high-octane prose zeroes in on the no-holds-barred story of Gillian Burke, 'The Gill,' an ex-cop who loves hard and hates hard. Mainly he hates the syndicate. Ever since the syndicate maneuvered him off the force, he's made it his business to know what the syndicate was up to. When some of the syndicate's most important operators are put out of business, violently and permanently, by a mysterious assassin, Gill is persuaded to put his badge back on and see if he can find the killer before any innocent people get hurt. His investigation has hardly begun when he becomes involved, in unforeseen and dangerous ways, with a ruby-lipped cop's daughter in the pay of a syndicate higher-up and with Helga, a luscious Swedish blonde."
