I just bought this copy of Sweet and Sour, so I thought it was a good time to put together a post of a few of my first editions by O'Hara, as well as a few nice ones I don't possess. I love the design of this book jacket!
The fifties were arguably the golden age of science fiction, and here are a few highly collectible novels from that era by such giants as Isaac Asimov & Ray Bradbury. The first six are from the bookseller L.W. Currey. They have an especially wide range of first edition science fiction and fantasy books. The last two are from my own library.
From my library. Raymond Chandler and James M. Cain knew how to capture the seamy underside of the human condition. Here are two of their best that were also the basis of memorable 40s films featuring the steamy pairings of Bogart + Bacall and Garfield + Turner.
