Dashiell Hammett - The Maltese Falcon

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1945 (originally published February 1930). 267pp. A Black Widow Thriller. Reprint. Hardcover. 8vo. Brown boards with green lettering. Fair to poor condition. Binding is somewhat rolled. Foxing, toning, and misc. areas of discoloration to pastedown pages, endpapers, and text-block. The dust jacket is in poor condition with closed (and open tears), chipping, discoloration and loss to corners and various areas at the rear (see photos). The dust jacket is not price clipped. Front flap is torn vertically but mended.

Overall, a rough but (no-less) 'handsome' copy of Dashiell Hammett's classic. We feel its rugged exterior only increases its character/charm.
