        First Publication of Raymond Chandler's Story "Killer in the Rain" in: Black Mask, January 1935

      London: The Atlas Publishing and Distributing Co.; Ltd., 1935 - First Edition, First Printing. London: The Atlas Publishing and Distributing Co.; Ltd., 1935. Vol. XIII, No. 4. A very fine copy of the UK edition with only the slightest of browning of the paper. Covers in gorgeous condition. Apart from the different numbering of this volume, contents and pagination are almost the same as the New York edition. However, since there are significantly fewer (and different) advertisements, two stories - Capt. George F. Shearwood's "And Death Passed By" and Ellsworth Braun's "A Boa Glides In" - were added to fill the 128 pages. Other than Chandler's "A complete novelette", contents include the Editor's "The Jury System And Justice" - Frederick Nebel's "He Was A Swell Guy" - Erle Stanley Gardner's "Winged Lead" - George Harmon Coxe's "Murder Picture" - Roger Torrey's "Beginner's Luck" - George Alden Edson's "Hot Lead" - Sergeant George W. Schattle's "A Fool For Luck". In addition there are the two features "What Do You Know" and "In February". The Ur-Big Sleep features a nameless detective who is hired to get a dame off the hands of some pornographers and blackmailers. Violets M'Gee is introduced and the idea that it never rains in southern California put to rest. "A roughneck comes into big money, but it's only dough to him and bullets mean nothing when he fights for the girl he tries to protect."

[solid, clean book with only light shelfwear to bottom edge; the jacket is somewhat darkened with age, with some minor paper loss at several corners and spine ends, some surface-scraping across the title on the front panel but no impact to the Covarrubias illustration; the jacket has also undergone some internal repair and reinforcement -- NOT restoration -- by a professional conservator]. (10 B&W line drawings) Hurston&#39;s second published book, and her first collection of African-American folklore (the second, "Tell My Horse," would appear in 1938). She had actually been shopping the idea of a "story book," drawing from the material she&#39;d gathered (under the patronage of Charlotte Osgood Mason) in small communities in Alabama and Florida from 1927 to 1931, to publishers for several years. However, it wasn&#39;t until the success of her first novel, "Jonah&#39;s Gourd Vine," in 1934, that she was able to raise any serious interest -- and even then, the publisher felt that the folklore material alone was not enough for an entire book, and persuaded Hurston to augment it with various other stories she had written, and a condensed version of an article on hoodoo that she&#39;d published in an folklore journal in 1931. The book was not universally well-received by critics (even black critics) at the time, but is now regarded as a classic of African-Americana and one of its author&#39;s most valuable works. [PLEASE NOTE that the somewhat fragile dust jacket on this book has benefited from some modest internal repair and reinforcement -- NOT restoration -- by a professional conservator.] .
