THE LIGHT OF DAY, Ambler, Eric
61 Ambler, Eric THE LIGHT OF DAY
William Heinemann 1962 0434019712 / 9780434019717 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Good dust jacket 
Heinemann 1962 First Edition. HC/DJ - very good/good minus. Hardcover is clean and intact, with with no markings, a little fading and bumping to spine to spine ends. Good minus jacket is age tanned, with light soiling and several edge tears and chips, edge rubbing. . ; 8vo; "The Light of Day was the basis for Jules Dassin’s classic film, Topkapi. When Arthur Abdel Simpson first spots Harper in the Athens airport, he recognizes him as a tourist unfamiliar with city and in need of a private driver. In other words, the perfect mark for Simpson’s brand of entrepreneurship. But Harper proves to be more the spider than the fly when he catches Simpson riffling his wallet for traveler’s checks. Soon Simpson finds himself blackmailed into driving a suspicious car across the Turkish border. Then, when he is caught again, this time by the police, he faces a choice: cooperate with the Turks and spy on his erstwhile colleagues or end up in one of Turkey’s notorious prisons..." [354-not]

THE MASK OF DIMITRIOS, AMBLER, Eric
62 AMBLER, Eric THE MASK OF DIMITRIOS
Fontana 1978 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Fontana 1978 edition, ISBN: 0006142060. Pages are clean and unmarked, fairly heavy age tanning to pages and covers. One split at spine but no loose pages. Cover has light creasing and light edgewear, light soiling bottom edge of pages. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; Review: "....The Mask of Dimitrios is a sombre romp through England, Istanbul and most of the Levant, coming full circle in that city created for novelists, Paris. Dimitrios is a master spy but his adversary and pursuer, bored Oxford don and crime writer Latimer's investigations bring to light the creation and perfection of Dimitrios. It is the career of Dimitrios which forms the core of the book, closing with an eerily silent, bloody coda. What is so remarkable about that book is that every character is one we would want to meet sometime in a humdrum life, every locale the perfect antithesis of the cloistered, the mundane and the routine. It is everyman's fantasized adventure remarkably executed by everyman, the bookish, inwardly challenged, cynical Mr. Latimer...." [135-osl]

SEXUAL METAMORPHOSIS An Anthology of Transsexual Memoirs, Ames, Jonathan (Editor)
63 Ames, Jonathan (Editor) SEXUAL METAMORPHOSIS An Anthology of Transsexual Memoirs
Vintage Books 2005 1400030145 / 9781400030149 First Edition Softcover New 
New & unread, no markings. 319 pages. B/w photos. "But who could describe my fright when, on the next morning, I awoke and found myself feeling as if completely changed into a woman? Case 129, Autobiography, from Psychopathia Sexualis, a Medico-Forensic Study by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing. At the time the passage above was written, people who felt trapped in the wrong gender automatically became case-studies. Today they become the men and women they always felt they were. Transsexuals test our notions of what it is to be male or female and, more provocatively, what it means to be one self as opposed to another. Their stories, says Jonathan Ames, hold the appeal of an adventurer's tale. In Sexual Metamorphosis, Ames presents the personal narratives of seventeen gender pioneers.

His adventures took him through fierce fighting, over mountain passes and shooting the rapids in a homemade boat. By the time the ice broke the following spring, Rory earned the right to be called a "sourdough", a real '98er, instead of that jeering tenderfoot name "Cheechako".....; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
