Listed below is my current stock in this subject, sorted in alphabetical order, by author. Please note that it is difficult to categorize some titles, which overlap different subjects; in these cases, the easiest procedure would be use the search box, which covers my entire stock. However, if searching for a particular title on this page only, the simplest method is to use "Control-F" to bring up the "Find" dialogue on screen. I have described the books as accurately as possible but will of course accept returns if a particular item is inadvertently not as described.

In a 1972 letter (which was inserted into a copy of the American edition) Ambler describes in detail how this classic novel was conceived. "The Mask of D[imitrios] was started -- in the mind anyway -- during a night train journey from Paris to Marseille. I was travelling 3rd class on a very hard seat and sleep was impossible. So was reading by the dim blue light provided. So I thought of a journey from Istanbul to Paris and drew a wiggly line in a notebook to remind me later. The journey, I thought, should be a kind of odyssey and that the traveller should be a criminal. When dawn came at Avignon and I could see better I wrote down the name 'Demetrius' spelling it then with 'e's and a 'u.' I also put a question mark as a precaution. Ideas evolved during sleepless nights rarely survive the day that follows. I wrote the book in a Montparnasse hotel called the Liberia which was little better than a flop-house, but very cheap --50 cents a night at the 1938 rate of exchange -- though I then thought it rather expensive. However, the walls were thin and interesting conversations could sometimes be heard through them. The 'masterful technique' you mention came painfully. Three times I decided to abandon the project as rule-breaking chaos, unlikely to prove readable; but in the end arrogance triumphed. Besides I was getting old -- 29 if a day -- and it was time I broke rules." — Stock No. 5487 — £40.00

Booth, Martin — Dreaming of Samarkand — London: Hutchinson, 1989 — 6Ό" x 9½". 308pp. Black cloth gilt in a scuffed and rubbed, price-clipped d/j, otherwise Very Good Plus. "Dreaming of Samarkand" is a novel of a love affair sought in loneliness -- not the loneliness of body but that of the soul. The three central characters were real people: the archaeologist/soldier T. E. Lawrence, the British poet James Elroy Flecker and Flecker's Greek wife, Helle. The background is the Middle East, England, and Switzerland on the eve of World War I. Feeling manipulated by a system he abhors and wracked by tuberculosis, Flecker ekes out a hand-to-mouth existence as a minor consular official in Lebanon. what he wants is to be accepted as a poet, as a writer, as a thinker and intellectual in the circle of peers he had known in England. Yet his is doomed to living in Beirut, where distance makes it impossible for him to become part of literary London, where the climate aggravates his disease, and where he cannot escape from his job as field controller for a spy and, by proxy, a spy himself. Although he is devoted to his wife, only one thing lifts him from his depression and from his inevitable precipitous slide to death. The spy for whom he is the control is T. E. Lawrence, who brings to Flecker a vitality he envies, a dream he wishes he could share, and a vibrancy he knows he wants to claim for himself. Both Flecker and Lawrence were in the employ of D.G. Hogarth, the noted archaeologist and spy-master who recruited them from Oxford University. Flecker and Lawrence fall in love; note merely sexual love -- their physical contact is reduced to a minimum by Lawrence's eccentricities and reticence -- but a deeply spiritual one. Lawrence also affords some escape for Flecker from his banal consular existence. The story develops into one of deception, illness and death -- the partly Jewish Flecker who aided the man who loved Arabs, the supposed enemies of Zion; the Englishman, Lawrence, who went native and supported the Arab cause.  Nothing, however can save Flecker from his fate. The temporary respite this love affair gives him is soon destroyed and his becomes a hopeless life. Only love keeps him going until his death: his love of Lawrence, his love for his wife, his love of poetry and words and beauty. — Stock No. 4669 — £20.00

"From the author of the award-winning Mamur Zapt books, the second in a new series introducing Seymour of Special Branch and set in the British embassies and Consulates of Europe in the early 1900s. The Second Secretary of the Embassy in Istanbul has died in decidedly strange circumstances while attempting to swim the Dardanelles Straits, the passage between Europe and Asia, heavily used by warships, liners, tankers and cargo vessels of all kinds. A romantic attempt to repeat the legendary feat of Leander, as the Embassy says? Or an attempt to spy out a possible landing place for a British military expedition, as the Turks insist? Whichever, Cunningham has ended up with a bullet in his head. The suspicious circumstances of his death have to be investigated so the Foreign Office sends out an officer of the Special Branch: Seymour. As Seymour tries to untangle the threads which lead to Cunningham's death, their ends lead him into all parts of the city, from the little box shops of the Avenue of Slippers to Les Petits Champs des Morts, where fashionable Turkish ladies loiter among the tombs to eat sweets; from the crowded coffee houses around the Galata Bridge where men sit all day smoking bubble pipes to the heart of the Topkapi Palace itself." — Stock No. 6359 — £24.00
