<B>HISTORY </B>van het Huis van Adriaan. Een grappige Vertelling. Amsterdam, D. Noothoven van Goor, (ca. 1870).
The rare Dutch counterpart to the English chapbook "The History of the House that Jack built", Jack here replaced by Adriaan. Just like its English original the story starts with "This is the House of Adriaan", and continues from "This is the corn that lay in the House of Adriaan" and "This is the rat who ate from the corn that lay in the House of Adriaan" until the final: "This is the stable of the horse, that rode away with Philip with a horn in his mouth, who caught the fox, that stole the cock, that awakened the farmer's daughter, who milked the cow, that tossed the dog, that chased the cat, that caught the rat, that ate the corn, that lay in the house of Adriaan". The plates very nicely illustrate all that is happening.
Good, but rather used copy.- (Loose in spine and frayed at edges; several plates strengthened at outer margins).
Cf. Cat. Van Rijn 730 (Amsterdam ed. of H. Freijling, stated to be the first); Cat. De Koning 298 (ed. published without date or address under the title: "Dit is het Huis van Adriaan" in about 1840).
Sm.8vo. Orig. colour-printed illustrated wrappers.

McBain, Ed (First Edition): The House That Jack Built: A Matthew Hope Novel (First Edition) New York Henry Holt and Company 1988
Lawyer Matthew Hope of Calusa, Fla., stars again as an amateur sleuth searching for evidence to exonerate a client. This time the accused is a visitor from the Midwest, Ralph Parrish, charged with murdering his gay brother, Jonathan, after a wild party at a Florida beach house. Although unhappy over Jonathan's debauchery and sexual orientation, Ralph loved his brother, and Hope believes in his client's innocence. Setting out on a serpentine path, the lawyer comes into the presence of people with secrets he can't pry loose: a priest at the church near Jonathan's house, a pair of married homosexuals, Arthur Hurley and Bill Walker, and their traveling companion, young, pregnant Helen Abbott. At the last turn in the road, Hope meets elderly Sophie Brechtmann and her daughter, Elise, owners of the famous Brechtmann Brewery, where the investigator learns how to make beer (and so does the reader) in the episode that ends a tale as spellbinding as McBain's Goldilocks, Puss in Boots and his other bestsellers. McBain's first success, published under the name Evan Hunter, was THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE (1954) - a tough novel of New York life, about an idealistic teacher in a slum high school. It was later made into a film with Glenn Ford and Sidney Poitier. Since then he has written more than eighty novels, writing under several names, but most famously as Evan Hunter and Ed McBain. He has also written many screenplays, including the one for Hitchcock's film THE BIRDS. As Ed McBain, he is the author of the 87th Precinct novels, the longest, the most varied, and possibly the most popular crime series in the world. These novels are about a team of policemen, usually including Detective Steve Carella, and are set in an "imaginary city". The 87th Precinct novels have garnered a huge, enthusiastic following. His numerous awards include: Mystery Writers of America Award, 1957, for short story THE LAST SPIN. Grand Master Award, Mystery Writers of America, 1986, for lifetime achievement. First American to receive the British Crime writer's Association Cartier Diamond Dagger, 1998. Frankfurt Original e-Book Award, best fiction, 2002.
