Lame Excuse Books  (Total items found: 9)
    Author: Manly Wade Wellman

Information about this author from Lame Excuse Books.
   I have a number of Wellman's books available, including his fantastic work, his historical and YA books, and even a few non-fiction titles.

Click title for more details. Click dealer name to contact or purchase direct from dealer.
1.   Wellman, Manly Wade.   To Unknown Lands.   Publisher: Holiday House, 1956.. First edition hardback, VG- with soft head and bump at heel, some slight general wear to boards, and the faint trace of what appears to be a beverage ring to the front boards themselves, otherwise sound but, alas, lacking the dj. Normally I wouldn't carry a jacket-less book like this, but it's one of the rarest of Wellman's YA historical novels, following the adventures (based very loosely on a few snippets of historical fact) of an Englishmen and an Irishman left behind from Columbus' expedition to the new world. Recommended.

Appr.:   AUD 2.80 CAD 2.65 EUR 1.76 GBP 1.29 JPY 200.00 MXN 25.00 ZAR 25.00 

Purchase direct from: Lame Excuse Books. Item number: LP716.

2.   Wellman, Manly Wade   Appomattox Road   Publisher: Ives Washburn, 1960.. First edition hardback, NF/VG-, with slight spotting and dust-staining to top page block, shallow chipping at dj head and heel, and significant age spotting and staining to white dj rear. Young adult historical novel, third in a series about the Confederate Iron Scouts, preceded by The Ghost Battalion and Ride, Rebels! One of Wellman's more difficult firsts.

Appr.:   AUD 13.99 CAD 13.25 EUR 8.81 GBP 6.45 JPY 1,000.00 MXN 125.00 ZAR 125.00

3.   Wellman, Manly Wade (David Drake)   Sin's Doorway and Other Ominous Entrances (Collected Wellman Volume 4)   Publisher: Night Shade Books, 2003.. First edition hardback, Fine, new and unread, sans dj, as issued. Introduction by David Drake. Some of Wellman's best work in here, including most of the work in the excellent (and now very expensive) Carcosa collection Worse Things Waiting. Recommended.

Appr.:   AUD 33.57 CAD 31.79 EUR 21.15 GBP 15.48 JPY 2,400.00 MXN 300.00 ZAR 300.00

4.   Wellman, Manly Wade   Twice in Time   Publisher: Avalon Books, 1957.. First edition hardback (no statement of printing on copyright page, as per Currey), an Ex-Library copy (albeit not an Ex-APL copy) with all the usual flaws, including a jacket trimmed a quarter of an inch at top and bottom, flaps glued to book, stamped, stained, etc.; call it good/good only, with spine lean and noticeable wear at head and heel. Still, no stickers on dj exterior, making it slightly more acceptable as a space filler copy.

Appr.:   AUD 27.97 CAD 26.49 EUR 17.62 GBP 12.90 JPY 2,000.00 MXN 250.00 ZAR 250.00

5.   Wellman, Manly Wade   A Double Life   Publisher: Century Movie Book (Century Publications), 1947. First edition paperback original (PBO) (though a trim size about 1/4" shorter and 1/8" wider than today's mass market paperbacks), a VG copy with spine lean, spinewear, crease along front join, general wear, and usual paper darkening for a pulp item of this era. Novelization of the Ronald Colman/Ruth Gordon film, complete with black and white stills from the film. A fairly rare item; I've only seen two copies, and the only other one online they want $125 for. This copy seems to be in better condition, and I'm offering it at less than half that price.

Appr.:   AUD 68.53 CAD 64.90 EUR 43.17 GBP 31.61 JPY 4,900.00 MXN 612.50 ZAR 612.50

Edgar Award Winner for Best Crime Non-Fiction.

Appr.:   AUD 12.59 CAD 11.92 EUR 7.93 GBP 5.81 JPY 900.00 MXN 112.50 ZAR 112.50

7.   Wellman, Manly Wade   They Took Their Stand   Publisher: Putnam, 1959.. First edition hardback, a Fine- copy with just a trace of softness at head and heel, in a VG+ dj with slight crinkling and hairline cracks at head and heel, a 3/4" semi-closed tear at top rear fold join, including a tiny sliver of dj loss at fold, slight rubbing at fold edges, and tiny spots of age darkening to rear panel, otherwise a fairly bright and attractive dust jacket with the spine unfaded. Non-fiction work on the first months of the Confederacy.

Appr.:   AUD 16.78 CAD 15.89 EUR 10.57 GBP 7.74 JPY 1,200.00 MXN 150.00 ZAR 150.00

8.   Wellman, Manly Wade   The Invading Asteroid   Publisher: Stellar Publishing Corporation, 1932.. First edition chapbook original, a VG copy with a tiny bit of "rounding" at head, i.e. a tiny bit of paper loss where it looks slightly nibbled, but it's only about a 1/16 of an inch, but less browning than usual to paper stock. No. 15 in Hugo Gernsback's Science Fiction Series, and Wellman's first separate publication.

Appr.:   AUD 68.53 CAD 64.90 EUR 43.17 GBP 31.61 JPY 4,900.00 MXN 612.50 ZAR 612.50

John Thunstone supernatural detective novel.
