1 Blatty, William Peter I, Billy Shakespeare!
Garden City NY Doubleday & Company, Inc. 1965 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj and illustrations) Victoria Chess 
[nice tight copy with no discernible wear; jacket very clean and attractive, with a short closed tear and associated creasing at top of spine]. (line drawings) "A wildly amusing first-person narrative (from tapes) by a phantom William Shakespeare, in which the Bard of Avon's ghost discusses many things -- particularly the charges that he didn't write the plays. He demolishes Marlowe, the Baconian Society, Ben Jonson, and others. He also proves, for some readers, that Queen Elizabeth was the real playwright." Blatty's third (and scarcest) book.

2 Blatty, William Peter The Exorcist
New York Harper & Row (c.1971) 0-06-010365-5 / 9780060103651 1st Edition (stated) Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by (dj design) Frederick Cantor 
[tiny bit of visible wear at extremities, book very slightly twisted on its axis but "squares up" nicely on shelf; jacket lightly rubbed, no chips or tears, with a slight dulling/yellowing to the spine (noticeable only on the light-colored lettering but otherwise unobtrusive due to the black background) and also visible at the edges of the flaps and along the top edge of the rear panel]. Best-seller about the demonic possession of a young girl, and the rather extreme curative measures applied thereto; basis for the still-riveting 1973 film adaptation, directed by William Friedkin. The first printing (with all applicable book & jacket points accounted for), this would also appear to be a review copy, with a mimeographed Harper & Row press release (dated March 1971) laid in, along with a mimeo'd biography of Blatty (dated December 1970); both these items are browned/creased/torn along their left-hand edges, no doubt from having been left sticking partly out of the book for many years.
