Description:
A scarce (and deservedly so) pre-war mystery about an ape-like mad professor who attempts to make his inamorata immortal through vampirism. Don't worry -- it makes even less sense than that description would imply. Second mystery featuring Rex Huxford. This copy is in Good condition -- the binding is slightly discolored in a few places, the cheap paper it's printed on is browning on the edges, and there are two previous owners' signatures on the front endpapers. The jacket, rarely seen at all, is only in Fair condition: it's missing several chunks, the biggest on the spine, and is held together by brown paper tape (not my fault!). Copies with even a partial original jacket are very hard to find. An acceptable place-holder copy until one can find that pristine one in jacket that is still out there somewhere. The jacket picture shows the whole jacket, with flaps, in its newly-supplied jacket protector. If you want other pictures, or more detailed ones, please ask.

Description:
London: W. H. Allen, 1970. First UK edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/good. Presentation copy of Gores' first novel, a rather gripping hard-boiled tale of revenge. Inscribed to (according to friends) Gores' agent at the time: "Art -- Since you're hung up on hardcovers, here," a note pointing out where "the sex-stuff" is in the book, "Enjoy ... enjoy/Joe, Oct '71". A very warm and personal inscription on the book that started a major career in modern hard-boiled mysteries, Book is very clean, with slight spine bumping; dustjacket is worn on the edges, with a noticeable closed tear at the upper left corner of the front panel, about 1cm in length, and two whitened rubbed patches about 1mm round on the left edge of the front panel. Winner of the Edgar for Best First Novel in 1970. A very nice associational copy of an important book. Gores died early in 2011.
