1 Hecht, Ben, and Maxwell Bodenheim Cutie: A Warm Mamma
New York Boar's Head Books 1952 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good- dj 
[moderate shelfwear, a little dust-darkening to top edge; jacket browned at edges, spine, and 1" strip along top of front panel, and a couple of small edge-tears along top edge have been internally tape-repaired]. Bodenheim, in his preface, calls this "a satire on ultra-prudish hypocritical censors and assailers of sexual candor and incisiveness in literary and pictorial work -- both official and amateur apostles of so-called cleanliness and righteousness." (The original publication of this piece was in 1924, in various issues of the Chicago Literary Times, co-edited by Hecht and Bodenheim.)

3 Hecht, Ben The Florentine Dagger: A Novel for Amateur Detectives
New York Boni and Liveright (c.1923) First Edition Hardcover Good Illustrated by Wallace Smith 
(no dust jacket) [reading/reference copy only; soiling to covers and edges of text block, dampstain at upper page corners affecting about the first 25 pages, stains/smudges on several other pages]. (B&W frontispiece + 4 plates) Mystery novel, the protagonist of which is "Prince Julien de Medici -- of Broadway." Basis for the 1935 film of the same name, directed by Robert Florey, with which Hecht himself does not appear to have been involved. NOTE that a prefatory note about the Wallace Smith illustrations refers to "the five illustrations contained in the following pages," but in fact one of those is the frontispiece, preceding that note, and therefore only four illustrations are actually to be found in "the following pages."

4 Hecht, Ben To Quito and Back
New York Covici, Friede (c.1937) First Edition Hardcover Very Good 
(no dust jacket) [a bit of shelfwear to bottom edge, bumped at base of spine, slight bumping/fraying to bottom front corner, spine cloth lightly sun-browned]. Melodramatic/romantic drama about a disillusioned American author who gets mixed up in a proletarian revolution while traveling in South America. The play, with a not-too-subtle anti-fascist message, has been cited as marking Hecht's turn away from his more comedic earlier plays to address more serious political concerns.
