    Robert Bloch: The Selected Stories of Robert Bloch Three-Volume Set. Comprised of Final Reckonings (371 pages), Bitter Ends (368 pages), and Last Rites (398 pages). (Columbia, Pennsylvania: Underwood-Miller, 1987), first edition, halfbound in red and black leather with gilt lettering on spine and marbled endpapers, each volume 8vo (6.25" x 9.5"), no dust jackets, issued in black cloth angular slipcase. Chalker indicates that the set halfbound in red and black leather was published in a run of 8, stamped "Presentation Copy" and "NFS", and signed. The set presented here is numbered 9 of 11 copies halfbound in red and black leather, and is not stamped "Presentation Copy" or "NFS", but is signed "Robert Bloch" on the limitation page in Volume One. No information can be found to explain the difference in the releases, if there indeed is a difference. This collection draws together dozens of Bloch's lesser-known stories, compiled by the author himself. The set offered here is in fine condition, with no noticeable wear to the books, and only a few small paint drips on the top of the slipcase. A rare set of Bloch stories in a handsome display. From the Ventura Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
