    Edition: First printing.

    Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Co., Inc., 1922. Hardcover first edition - Romantic novel centered on a talented young woman at a turning point in her career and a college professor and book collector. "When on one blustering afternoon in late March Professor Mark Fenn came into the dingy old college book-shop which was one of his favourite haunts, he passed by the magazine stand in a hurry, though it was thick with all the newest April publications and vivid with their colour. His mind was upon a certain row of bookshelves in the dimmest part of the back of the shop, where he had yesterday discovered rich treasure. Almost an hour later, when he had decided, rather against his judgment but wholly according to his inclination, to purchase the full tale of seven books which he needed to complete a special group in his collection, he passed the magazine stand again, and this time he halted. He had caught sight of the name of Mary Fletcher, emblazoned in large letters upon the cover of The Centrepiece." Although almost forgotten now, Richmond was both a prolific and highly-paid popular author who was never out of print for almost 40 years - reportedly Doubleday sold over 2 1/2 million copies of her books.

    ZEITOUN.
    Edition: Early printing.

    San Francisco: McSweeney's (2009). SIGNED hardcover - The story of one man's experiences after Hurricane Katrina. Abdulrahman Zeitoun, a successful Syrian-born painting contractor, decides to stay in New Orleans and protect his property while his wife (born in Louisiana and a convert to Islam) and children leave for safety. After the levees break, he uses a small canoe to assist other stranded residents, before being arrested at one of his rental properties along with three other men by an armed squad. They were swept into a vortex of bureaucratic brutality and imprisoned as suspected terrorists; for a long time all his family knew was that he had "disappeared." Highly praised at the time of its publication, this received the American Book Award. A few years later, his wife filed for divorce and he was arrested and indicted not only for extremely violent abuse but for allegedly conspiring to have his ex-wife murdered. He was acquitted of the murder-related charges which came from a "non-credible" source, but convicted of abuse, and for some this cast doubt on the entire story - although itis undeniable that the government's response to Katrina was not only inadequate but focused more on protecting property than on saving lives. At the end of the book, Eggers portrays them as broken but hopeful - unfortunately, they were not only broken but destroyed. SIGNED on the title page. 347 pp plus ads. ISBN: 978-1934781630.
