His work includes "Stranger on the Third Floor" (1940), "The Uninivited" (1944), and "The Snake Pit" (1948), each groundbreaking in the areas of film noir, ghost stories, and insane asylums, respectively.

Description:
Alfred A. Knopf, 1943. First edition, first printing. Very slight lean, small spot to fore edge, gentle pressing to spine tips and front corners, still near fine in near fine, faintly toned dust jacket with very shallow chipping to corners, in mylar cover.. Known for cannibalizing his short stories, Chandler drew upon his previously published "Bay City Blues," "No Crime in the Mountains," and the eponymously named "The Lady of the Lake." Fueled by his patriotism and written shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Chandler makes several references within the narrative to America's involvement in WWII. Where most authors fill the back of the dust jacket's with accolades, endorsements, and self-publicity, Chandler uses the whole of the rear jacket pleading for his readers to purchase War Bonds and Stamps and in so doing, "buy a share in the miracle" that is funding the war. It is rare to find a copy of this most notable and scarce work (only 6,000 in the first print run) in such a beautiful… Read More

Description:
NY: Knopf, 1943. Bound in light green cloth, stamped in forest green. Only flaws to book are a bit of dustiness to edges and a small number 5649 written on the ffep. The dustwrapper has had some minor restoration work done to the top of the spine. Shows a little darkening to the rear panel. But no chips, tears to speak of. One of 6000 copies in the first edition. Overall, a tight, clean copy of the book in original dustwrapper -- rare in this protected condition. Basis for the bizarre movie directed by George Haight of the same title that starred Robert Montgomery as Marlowe -- but because of the "subjective camera" method -- you rarely see the actor. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
