OMNIBUS

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1935. first one-volume edition. A small plump octavo, containing three books: Red Harvest, The Daim Curse and The Maltese Falcon, with 270, 272, and 267 pages, which were first issued separately in 1929 and 1930. This copy has a narrow paper break at page 22-23, but is otherwise internally very good and without markings of any kind. It is bound in orange-stamped green cloth, which has a half-circle cup stain on the rear panel, and some wear to edges and the top of the spine, which is sunned and very slightly frayed. The book lacks its dustjacket, so this is a very good but not brilliant copy. Thanks to Knopf's typographic skills, the right weight of paper (that lies flat) and generous leading between the lines of type, the book gets an A+ for readability. Item #7066

Price: $125.00
