Description:
Boston, New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, Delacorte Press, 1982. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First editions. Mostly fine in fine dustwrappers (see below for details). The first twelve of the approximately forty Spenser novels, one of the premiere detective series of the last quarter of the 20th Century. The series was extremely influential in the detective fiction world, incorporating an idealistic and indefatigable detective hero with an unbreakable personal code descending in a direct line from the hardboiled protagonists of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chander, and Ross Macdonald.After the first dozen Spenser novels the series, although entertaining and engaging, became increasingly formulaic. However, reading the first dozen novels in real time was a revelation. Spenser's tense interactions with his sometimes rival and sometimes friend Hawk practically crackled off the page. Condition details as follows:1. *The Godwulf Manuscript* 1974. Fine in fine price-clipped dustwrapper. Inscribed to "a collector… Read More

Description:
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1974. First edition. Near fine in very good plus jacket. Signed first printing of Parker's debut crime novel, in which private detective Spenser is hired to recover a distressed medieval manuscript held for ransom by criminals with no respect for literature or the niceties of the rare book trade. First of Parker's long-running and highly successful series of 'Spenser' novels, inspiration for the '80s TV series "Spenser: For Hire" and the recent film Spenser Confidential (2020). Parker, a onetime English professor at Northeastern who wrote his doctoral dissertation on "The Violent Hero" in the hard-boiled detective novel, set his debut novel at an unnamed Boston university full of student radicals, criminal schemes, and dark departmental politics: realism, more or less. 8.25'' x 5.5''. Original brown cloth with ornate "G" stamped in darker brown. In original price-clipped dust jacket, designed by Paul Bacon. Tan endpapers, red topstain. [6], 186 pages. Signed by… Read More
