1 West, Paul Alley Jaggers
New York Harper & Row 1966 First Edition Milton Glazer SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Fully bound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in blue and yellow; the front board in yellow. Bright gold endpapers and topstain. 242pps. This book is an association copy, SIGNED, dated (8 January, 1967), and inscribed by the author to 'La Fayette Butler' (the noted collector), with 'best wishes' on the ffep. A gift inscription 'affectionately for La Fayette Butler,' from friends, is on the dedication page. Butler's Fountain Lawn Library bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown. A small bookseller's label is in the lower corner of the rear pastedown. The text is clean and bright, the binding square and tight. All tips are sharp. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is very lightly rubbed and has a 1/16" nick at the head of the spine; no chips or tears. The original price is intact. A highly presentable copy in a bright and colorful dustjacket.

"...Alley Jaggers is a twenty-five-year-old plasterer, pursuing what appears to be a routine working-class English life: off to the job each morning with his lunch pail, home at night to a tasteless supper with his quarrelsome Mam and his fat wife, Dot.
But within the sooty walls of Alley's little house, each member of the family battles for survival. Dot soothes herself by baking her mother-in-law's false teeth out of shape; Mam, the war widow, threatens suicide and clings to her pet dachshund; and Alley retires to a secret workshop in the attic, where he builds sail-plane models.
Brilliant, bawdy, the wildest novel yet to come out of the steaming back streets of working-class England, Alley Jaggers marks the American debut of a young novelist not only acclaimed as the most imaginative of the new British realists, but also compared favorably to Gunter Grass and Samuel Beckett..."

2 West, Paul and Denslow, W. W. The Pearl And The Pumpkin
New York Dillingham 1904 First Edition Cloth Denslow, W. W. 
(1904). Very Good in the publisher's pea-green cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in green. Decorative gray, black, and orange endpapers. 239pps., with numerous gray, black, and orange illustrations, plus 16 full-page, full-color plates. Modest rubbing wear to the board-edges and light soiling and rubbing to the paste-label, which is in very nice condition. A good deal of the lettering has been rubbed from the spine, though it is barely affected on the front board. A small store-label is affixed to the upper corner of the front pastdown. The binding is shaken, though sound, with all pages and plates intact. Also, there is a small tear (1/2") in the endpaper near the top of the rear hinge; this is not a structural problem, but a slight cosmetic one and all the material is yet present. Overall light reading wear with the sporadic soil-mark or crimped page-end. The plates are all in fine, clean condition. A charming children's book with all illustrations by the celebrated W. W. Denslow, who'd done the original The Wonderful Wizard of Oz four years earlier. 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. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books. To assist with your decision, photos can be emailed upon request.
