1 Wylie, Philip BABES AND SUCKLINGS
New York & London: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. First edition. Bound in vivid orange-red, blue and green decorated cloth; illustrated dust jacket. Hardcover. Pages lightly age-toned, as expected, top-edge coloring a trifle faded, else a bright, fine copy; in an age-darkened dust jacket with nicking and short edge tears, separation at both spine folds, and tape shadows to reverse of jacket at the spine folds. 
Third book and second novel from the author and polemicist who wrote a slew of self-described potboilers, but whose best work (GLADIATOR, THE DISAPPEARANCE) reflects passionate social concerns expressed in literate and compelling narratives.

2 Wylie, Philip GLADIATOR
New York: Shakespeare House, (1951). B000EAEBBA Reprint. Small octavo. Hardcover. Very nearly fine, in black leather shelfback over tweed-effect boards, top-edge gilt; in a fair dust jacket: with substantial chipping, nicking, and with some separation at the spine folds. 
Nifty little reprint of Wylie's powerful, visionary superman yarn (which spawned an entire subgenre of sf) tells of a biologist's prenatal experiment with his own son--who, as a result, is born with super-human strength, a fine brain, and a gentle nature.

New York and Toronto: Rinehart & Company, Inc., (1949). First edition. Hardcover. A fine, bright copy in purplish cloth decorated and lettered in gilt and black; in a very lightly age-toned and mildly rubbed illustrated dust jacket. Jacket design by Robert Hallock. An unusually nice example! 
Freewheeling meta-fiction in the style of Wylie's earlier FINNLEY WREN; "the author conducts the reader through a short-term adventure which involves himself and a half dozen other characters."
