Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1934. It is sometimes easy to trace a literary genre to its source, and James M. Cain's first novel, The Postman Always Rings Twice, is the noir novel that paved the way for all the noir fiction that followed. The famous film starring Lana Turner and John Garfield is notoriously dark, but the novel is even more full of despair and devoid of hope. It is a short book--little more than a novella--but its searing characterization and depiction of tawdry greed and lust is branded into every reader's memory" (Otto Penzler). Listed by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century.

Description:
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. Unsentimentally realistic, this classic novel is a reflection of the effects of poverty on tenant farmers in the South during the Great Depression. It focuses on the Lester family, former cotton farmers who continue to live on their ancestors' plantation even though it has long ceased to be prosperous. Jeeter and Ada Lester have 17 children, two of whom still live at home: Ellie May, their only unmarried daughter who has a cleft lip, and Dude, their youngest son who is mentally handicapped. The family's antics, while at times vile and perverse, depict the racism and moral ambiguity that existed among some impoverished Southerners at that time and represent Erskine Caldwell's critique of the failed economic system and its consequences. It was the basis for the Broadway show which ran from 1933 to 1941 (then the longest-running play on record), and adapted into the 1941 film directed by John Ford starring Charley Grapewin, Marjorie Rambeau,… Read more

Geneva: Apud Iohannem le Preux, 1592. Rare early printing of Calvin's seminal work on systematic theology and one of the most influential works of Protestant theology. Folio, bound in full contemporary vellum with a burgundy spine label lettered in gilt, elaborate woodcut printer's device to the title page, woodcut headpiece and initial to the first page of text. In near fine condition with ownership inscriptions to the front free endpaper. An exceptional example. One of the most influential works of Protestant theology, John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion was first published in Latin in 1536 (at the same time as Henry VIII of England's Dissolution of the Monasteries) and soon in his native French language in 1541, with the definitive editions appearing in 1559 (Latin) and in 1560 (French). Calvin published the work with the intention of publishing an introductory textbook on the Protestant creed covering a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and… Read more

London: Imprinted by Thomas Dawson for John Harison and George Byshop, 1577. First edition in English of John Calvin's commentaries on the Pauline Epistles. Octavo, bound in full speckled calf with raised bands to the spine, all edges red, rebacked. Title within architectual woodcut border, woodcut initials. In very good condition. First editions are rare. One of the earliest extant Christian documents, the Pauline Epistles constitute thirteen books of the New Testament and are largely attributed to Paul the Apostle. As part of the canon of Christian theology and ethics, the Epistles offer an unprecedented insight into the beliefs and controversies of early Christianity. The Pauline epistles are usually placed between the Acts of the Apostles and the general epistles in modern editions of the New Testament. Most Greek manuscripts, however, place the General epistles first, and a few minuscules place the Pauline epistles at the end of the New Testament. French theologian and reformer John Calvin… Read more
