Description:
London: Arthur Barker Ltd, 1934. First U.K. Edition. Hammett's fifth and final novel, a commercial success upon publication, selling more than 30,000 copies within a few months of its release on 8 January, 1934. The UK edition followed Knopf's four months later, with portions of the text revised by Hammett, and like all UK editions of Hammett books, it is considerably scarcer than its American counterpart. Basis for W.S. Van Dyke's film of the same name released later the same year, and spawning a successful series of subsequent films through 1947. Uncommon in dustjacket, with the last collectible example offered at the Rechler sale (Christies, 2002). Layman A6.3; Hubin, p.185. First Impression. Octavo (19.5cm); orange cloth, with titling and pictorial elements stamped in black on spine and front cover; dustjacket; [6],7-284,[4]pp. Pictorial bookplate and private library stamp of Italian bibliophile Giuseppe Orlando, with his holograph signature and date of acquisition (Feb.1935) at upper margin of… Read more

A key issue, marking Horace McCoy's debut in Black Mask with a story called "The Devil Man," additionally containing stories by Erle Stanley Gardner, Julian Kilman, Victor Shaw, Tom Curry, and others.

Description:
New York: Lawrence E. Spivak, 1943. First Edition. First edition of Hammett's "novel" comprised of two stories - "The Big Knockover" and "$106,000 Blood Money" - in which the Continental Op "sets out to find the gang that robbed the Seaman's National Bank of several million dollars, and does battle with perhaps his most ruthless antagonist" (Pronzini & Muller, p.334). Both stories, which first appeared in the pages of Black Mask in 1927, are among Hammett's most anthologized works, and fine examples of the hard-boiled genre. As Hammett associations go, few are more coveted than those inscribed to his romantic partner; only two other titles inscribed to Hellman appear in the auction record, both in the Maurice Neville sale (Sotheby's, Nov.16, 2004): a fifth printing of The Maltese Falcon ($12,000) and the dedication copy of The Thin Man ($102,000). We are unable to locate any others among either Hammett's or Hellman's papers at the Ransom Center, or the Hammett collection at the University of South… Read more

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1931. First American Edition. Attractive copy of Hammett's fourth novel. "Like Personville in Red Harvest, the city is controlled by crooked politicians in league with various mobster factions; but in The Glass Key Hammett gives us an insider's view of the corruption and in fact creates a corrupt political henchman as his protagonist" (Pronzini & Muller, p.335). Widely regarded as one of Hammett's finest works, The Glass Key was serialized in the pages of Black Mask between March-June, 1930; Hammett would later settle down and revise the novel for Knopf, who published it first in London in January, 1931, and then in New York in April, 1931. Filmed twice, most notably Stuart Heisler's 1942 film noir starring Brian Donlevy, Veronica Lake, and Alan Ladd. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone title. Layman A4.2.a. First Printing.
