A Man lay Dead:

Novels/novellas: 
  • Suspense - Joseph Conrad
  • The Kreuzer Sonata - probably the novella by Leo Tolstoy, since the owner of the book is Russian

Other:
  • Webster‘s Dictionary
  • Eyes and No Eyes - There are several publications with this title and I can't begin to guess which one is being referred to, because the reference completely went over my head.
  • The Ideal Home - this appears to be a magazine along the lines of Better Homes and Gardens.

Stage works:
  • The Rat and the Beaver - an imaginary play by an author whose name is not given; the murder takes place on stage during a performance of it
  • The Pirates of Penzance - comic opera by Gilbert & Sullivan
  • Othello - Shakespeare 
  • Madame X - Alexandre Bisson

Other:
  • The Morning Express - newspaper, may have existed at that time but no longer
  • La Vie Parisienne - French erotic magazine (typically, the evil murder victim has a 'striking' framed picture from it hanging in his apartment)
