Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First Edition. A very good copy in a good, price-clipped dust jacket with splitting at the folds, numerous chips and tears. Celebrated and admired for a number of reasons, among the least of which might be that it’s a Haycraft-Queen cornerstone, among the greatest of which is almost certainly its basis for a remarkable movie version. Perhaps, above all else, it’s a great work of fiction.

Description:
New York, 1930. Hammett, Dashiell. ONE PAGE TYPED LETTER, SIGNED ["Sincerely, Dashiell Hammett"]. 135 East 38th Street, New York, April 21st, 1930. Highly desirable unpublished early letter from one of Hammett's most creatively fruitful years in which he makes mention of all three of his greatest novels. To "Dear Mr. Hammett" (Walter Hammett of Yale University in New Haven, who had initially written wondering -- incorrectly as it turned out -- if they shared any kin), it reads: "Thanks a lot for the latest of your always kind notes. The Falcon seems to be going over pretty well and I think Earl Boothe's going to produce it on the stage in the Fall if I can get time off from the current book to do the dramatization. The next book, 'The Glass Key' is scheduled for publication in September or October, and then 'The Thin Man' and 'The Darkened Face' in February and August, 1931. Beyond that deponent saith not. Best of luck to you with the poetry… Read more
