Lion Books 31 1950 1st Lion Books edition Paperback Good to Very Good Sextodecimo -- from 5.75" to 6.75"

(I don't think "probe" is the right word in this particular instance, although I do admit to the better part of my mind being a small back room); cover illustration by Wesley Snyder, and it features a sitting man with his back to a standing woman who couldn't look any more despairing and anguished if she learned he was leaving her for a threesome with both of her grandmothers; spine roll, light edgewear, some spine sunning, faint spotting, tiny dampstain to small portion of top edge of first couple of pages, tanned pages, light general wear;

25 Conway, Hugh (pseudonym of Frederick John Fargas) Bound By a Spell
Cleveland The Arthur Westbrook Company Wraps Good to Very Good Digest 
Nd (circa 1925). #186 in Westbrook's The Hart Series. The author died of typhoid fever in 1885, at the too-young age of 38. Curiously, bound into the back of the book are the first 39 pages -- ending in mid-sentence -- of another Conway/Fargas title, "Living or Dead," which Westbrook also published in The Hart Series as #167 (was this additional material a mistake?; an attempt to hook readers on another Conway/Fargas title?; a common Westbrook practice?; an Axis of Evil plot?). Rubbing, light smudging, crosscrack, spine scrapes, vertical creases to back cover, some soil/spotting to edges, tanned pages. A fragile item to begin with, this is an okay copy of an elusive edition.

26 Cook, Will We Burn Like Fire
Monarch 130 1959 First Edition Paperback Good to Very Good Sextodecimo -- from 5.75" to 6.75" 
Paperback original. We could call this a racing novel featuring fast cars and a fast woman, but dammit, the guy who wrote the copy on the back cover deserves a bit of a nod for this effort: "To Wendel Garland sports-car racing was an intimate and personal thing--like making love to his sensation-starved secretary, Alice Lavery [ummm--if he's making love to her and she's *sensation-starved*, what does that tell us?]. Every time he got on the track Wendel risked his neck to win. He knew the car could be the instrument of his death, yet there was poetry in danger -- as there was poetry and danger in Alice's dedicated depravity." (Dedicated depravity! I *knew* there had to be more to the allure of racing than just the cars! Sign me up.). Handling wear, light edgewear, gentle crinkling/creasing, some scraping to bottom portion of right edge of back cover. Internally tight and clean.

114 Seale, Sara The Dark Stranger
Winnipeg Harlequin 870 1964 1st Harlequin edition Paperback Very Good Sextodecimo -- from 5.75" to 6.75" 
When a gypsy fortune teller informs a young woman that a dark stranger will come into her life the young woman is disbelieving, since she has one of those evil stepmothers who keeps her "decidedly in the background." But this being a Harlequin and all, I figure it won't be long before the background becomes the foreground and romance blooms, especially after someone clubs the evil stepmother over the head, sets fire to her, then scatters her ashes to the winds screaming along the Cornish coast. Okay, maybe not that last part, but you gotta admit, it *would* be a nice departure from the usual 1960s Harlequin fare. 191 pages.

173 Whittemore, Edward Quin's Shanghai Circus
Avon Bard 61200 1982 1st Avon edition Paperback Near Fine Duodecimo -- from 6.75" to 7.75" tall 
An uncommon edition of the author's first novel, of special appeal to the completist collector of work by this creator of most peculiar tales. "Quin was on his way to the Orient to search for his parents, who disappeared there twenty years ago in the confusion of WWII. But he wasn't expecting to discover that Mom and Dad had changd the course of WWII--or that their spy ring included a pederastic Catholic priest, a one-eyed Japanese secret police chief, and a Russian anarchist, intellectual, and sensualist who specialized in erudite translations of Japanese pornography. Nor was Quin prepared to discover Mama, a nightclub owner and one-time laudanum addict who slept with 10,000 men before she was twenty-five. But these are just the beginning of Quin's revealations--" (Whoa! Hold on a minute there, Sparky. Ten. Thousand. Men? Before she was twenty-five? Consider that, boys and girls. Assuming sexual promiscuity begins around fifteen--although these days it seems like it's about twelve, but nonetheless, for purposes of this calculation we will use fifteen--that's ten years of sex. At 365 days a year and not even considering Leap Year, that's three thousand, six hundred and fifty days. And that, my children, works out to two-and-three-quarters men per day--or close enough to three as to make no real difference. Fercryinoutloud, when did she find time to do the laundry? Although, I suppose, if you're naked that much of the time, there's not a lot of laundry needs doing--well, not clothes, at least.)
