1 Davies, Robertson Murther & Walking Spirits
New York, NY Viking Penguin 1991 0670841897 / 9780670841899 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 

Price-clipped. Inlcudes a picture postcard of the author, plus a review of the book clipped from The New York Times Books Review.

"Ancestors. Forebears. Great-great-grandparents. To most of us they are nothing more than a name on a tombstone or a bearded or bonneted figure peering from an old brown photograph. We may know where they lived and when they died. But of their daily lives, the sound of their voices in joy and despair, we know nothing.
Imagine, then, the surprise of 'Gil' Gilmartin, the 44 year-old entertainment editor of a Toronto newspaper, when he is violently thrust into attendance at an unusual Film Festival, one involving his own forebears: "Unless I am entirely out of my mind, this is something which sets before me the core of my ancestral experience, captured, as a film captures experience, in a narrative that is coherent as what we call real life can never be."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

2 Davies, Robertson The Lyre of Orpheus
New York, NY Viking Penguin 1989 067082416X / 9780670824168 First American Trade Edition Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 

U.S. price clipped. Includes a clipping of the review in the New York Times Book Review, plus a review from the New York Times itself. Owner's name written inside front cover.

This is the third book in a series of novels about the life and times of Francis Cornish, following 'The Rebel Angels' and 'What's Bred in the Bone."
"There is an important decision to be made. The Cornish Foundation, set up with money left by the late Francis Cornish, art expert, collector, connoisseur, and notable eccentric, must choose a worth undertaking upon which to expend a portion of its considerable funds. As the Foundation's chairman, Francis's nephew Arthur Cornish (ably assisted by his loving, beguiling wife, Maria Theotoky), believes -- and prizing an image as a clashing, daring, imaginative patron of the arts has no small influence on his reasoning -- they should select a project worthy of the risk taker whose name the Foundation bears. . ."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
