Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. The last word in atrocity, cynicism, and horror" in a superb example of the rare first jacket First edition of the author's landmark first book, with the earliest issue of the dust jacket with the plot summary on the rear panel. The earliest issue is so rare that Richard Layman describes only a later issue with reviews from The Bookman, The Outlook and The Chicago Post.Red Harvest, which was originally published in four issues of Black Mask from November 1927 to February 1928, is acclaimed as the foundational text in the hardboiled detective genre, giving a darker cynical twist to the classic great detective figure exemplified by Sherlock Holmes. Drawing from his personal experiences as an operative with the Pinkerton Detective Agency, Hammett portrayed a seedy, violent milieu inhabited by gangsters, corrupt cops, and flawed detectives hired to clean up the place. André Gide called Red Harvest "a remarkable achievement, the last word in atrocity, cynicism, and… Read More

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. First edition of the author's first book and "acknowledged literary landmark" (New York Times Book Review). Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with a few small chips. An exceptional example in a completely unrestored early issue dust jacket, which is usually encountered with restoration. Rare and desirable. When the last honest citizen of Poisonville was murdered, the Continental Op stayed on to punish the guilty--even if that meant taking on an entire town. Red Harvest is more than a superb crime novel: it is a classic exploration of corruption and violence in the American grain. Time included Red Harvest in its 100 Best English-Language Novels from 1923 to 2005. The Nobel Prize-winning author Andre Gide called the book "a remarkable achievement, the last word in atrocity, cynicism, and horror." "Hammett's prose [is] clean and entirely unique. His characters [are] as sharply and economically defined as any in American… Read More

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. First edition. Previous owner name in ink to front free endpaper, small light stains to margins of first several text pages, some rubs and a small stain to rear cover, a very good or somewhat better copy. No dust jacket. (19129). Octavo, pp. [1-12] [1-3] 4-270 [271: publisher's data] [272-276: blank] original red cloth, front stamped in yellow and black, spine stamped in yellow and black. Author's first novel, featuring his Continental Op character, one of the earliest and most important contributions to the establishment of the hard boiled detective. "Taken as a whole, and chronologically, the novels may be seen to speculate on the way a man should deal with disorder, on the things to which he should give his allegiance. In Red Harvest, the Continental Op is motivated by what appears to be a work ethic. He finds Personville corrupt and he cleans it up for no better reason than it's his job..." - St. James Guide to Crime & Mystery Writers… Read More

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929 First edition, first printing. Publisher's red cloth, stamped in black and yellow with skull and crossbones motif to front board. An excellent copy with a very slight touch of fading to the spine and very minor rubbing to the corners, former owner bookplate and a small bookseller sticker to front endpaper, else fine. Overall, a beautiful and fine example of Hammett's first book. Red Harvest was originally published serially in four installments in the pulp magazine Black Mask from November 1927 - February 1928. Like Hammett's subsequent novel The Dain Curse, Red Harvest features the protagonist the Continental Op, an operative of the Continental Detective Agency's San Francisco office. The Continental Op is regarded as one of the earliest archetypal hard-boiled detective characters, similar to Hammett's later character Sam Spade and Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe. The Op is a short middle-aged man, who has few interests or activities… Read More

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. First edition. Near Fine. Publisher's cloth binding stamped in black and yellow. Lacking the rare dust jacket. A Near Fine copy, spine a bit faded, evidence of bookplate removed from the front paste-down, otherwise an attractive copy overall. The first of Hammett's novels, Red Harvest drew on his true-to-life experience as an operative for the notorious Pinkerton Detective Agency. Narrated by Continental Op, who becomes a recurring character in Hammett's work, the novel explores humans' violent tendencies when power and money are on the line. Arriving in town too late to meet his newspaper contact, who is murdered, Continental Op decides nevertheless to stay. He discovers that rival gangs have begun to loosen the control of the local industrialist (and father to the newspaperman) who had long been considered the most powerful figure in town. And as he begins to uncover how deeply corruption runs in the town, even implicating the police force, Continental Op becomes… Read More
