Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First edition of one of the earliest and most influential detective novels ever written. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine first-issue dust jacket priced at 2.00 with the dust-jacket blurb quotes Joseph Shaw, editor of Black Mask, "We want to go on record as saying that this story is a marvelous piece of writing - the finest detective story it has ever been our privilege to read in book form, in any magazine of any kind, or in manuscript..." with some expert restoration. Rare and desirable, as most examples have been price-clipped.   Originally serialized in Black Mask Magazine in 1929, Dashiell Hammet's The Maltese Falcon is considered to be the first hard-boiled detective novel and the progenitor of the genre. The third-person narrative unfolds in San Francisco where private detective Sam Spade is hired to follow Floyd Thursday, the man who has run off with his client, Miss Wonderly's sister. Multiple shootings, romance, and intrigue prevail… Read More

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First printing. Near fine. First edition in book form of the hard-boiled classic, in which private detective Sam Spade chases a valuable artifact with the femme fatale Brigid O'Shaughnessy, rarely found with the original dust jacket (here professionally restored). Hammett, a former Pinkerton detective, was one of the primary pioneers of a distinctly American strain of detective fiction: the hard boiled. THE MALTESE FALCON captures many of the key traits of the genre, including a gritty setting (in this case 1920s San Francisco), morally ambiguous characters where no one seems entirely "good, " and an isolated, lone-wolf protagonist who lacks the gentlemanly demeanor of famous antecedents like Sherlock Holmes. It was first published in a series of five issues of THE BLACK MASK beginning September 1929. Although the book didn't live up to Knopf's hopes, selling about a tenth the copies A FAREWELL TO ARMS did the previous year, it was vaulted to icon status with the… Read More

Description:
Alfred A.Knopf, London and New York, 1930. The first UK edition (first printing), issued five months after the US issue. 8vo. 280pp. Blue smooth-weave cloth lettered in red at the spine with a small black-stamped falcon design to the backstrip and the upper corner of the front board.
