1 Layman, Richard (editor); Rivett, Julie M. (editor) The Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett : 1921-1960
New York, NY, U.S.A. Counterpoint 2001 1582430810 / 9781582430812 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover 
Near Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Brown boards with a black, silver-stamped backstrip. Burgundy endpapers. 650pp., with numerous plates and pictures. There is mild bumping to the spine-ends and a remainder mark on the bottom of the textblock, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a faint 1" scratch on the back panel; no chips, soiling, or tears. The original price of $40.00 is intact on the front flap. A nice copy. ".Here is a volume that generations of readers have longed for -- the first-ever selection from the letters of Dashiell Hammett, the onetime private detective who, in five astonishing books written between 1927 and 1933, invented the modern American crime novel. Hammett was not only the founding member of the hardboiled school, he also was its greatest practitioner, and even after Chandler and all the rest, his body of work remains the solid-gold standard. The best of his work is literature -- without the quotation marks." --BOOK JACKET Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile.
