Farewell, my Lovely
Raymond Chandler, 1940
CHANDLER, Raymond (1888-1959). Farewell, my Lovely. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1940.

A remarkably fine copy of the first edition of Chandler's second novel, and another Haycraft-Queen cornerstone. The blurb on the rear panel of the jacket says it best: "Shocks and thrills aplenty lie ahead in ths fast, close-knit, and utterly hard-boiled story of murder, extortion, and assorted rackets and depravities on the criminal fringes of Los Angeles." Bruccoli A2.1a.

Octavo. Original cloth; pictorial dust jacket (head of spine panel a little rubbed, short closed tear with a little creasing at flap fold on rear panel); custom box.
