1 Beeding, Francis (pseud. for John Leslie Palmer and Hilary Aiden St. George Saunders) Hell Let Loose
New York Grosset & Dunlap (c.1937) Reprint Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dj 
[nice copy, square and solid, faint shelfwear at top and bottom edges; jacket edgeworn, various small tears, still attractive]. "Against an authentic background of war-torn Spain, [the author] tells of a struggle for a tremendously important military secret -- pitting the secret agents of four nations against one another and ranging in his story from Madrid to Seville, from underground dugouts to airplanes above the battle lines." One of numerous thrillers by this pseudonymous authorial team to feature Colonel Alastair Granby, D.S.O., of the British Intelligence Service.

2 Beeding, Francis The House of Dr. Edwardes
New York A.L. Burt Company (c.1928) NO Reprint Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dj 
[solid copy, light wear to bottom edge, bumped at base of spine, spine slightly turned; jacket has tiny tears and minor paper loss at most top corners, still quite presentable]. Suspense novel set in a "private asylum for the mentally deficient." Later served as the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 thriller SPELLBOUND, with Gregory Peck as the man whose innermost torment is expressed in a memorable Salvador Dali-designed dream sequence. Very difficult to find in any sort of a dust jacket; I believe this uses the same art as the first American (Little, Brown) edition, but I've never seen one of those because it's super-damn-rare, as opposed to this one, which is only kinda-sorta rare. (Even the primary supplier of facsimile dust jackets seems to have been unable to track down an example of the first, since the one he offers is the Burt edition.)
