        First Publication of Raymond Chandler's Story "Guns at Cyrano's" in: Black Mask, January 1936

      New York: Pro-Distributions Publishing Company, 1936 - First Edition, First Printing. New York: Pro-Distributions Publishing Company, 1936. Vol. XVIII, No. 11. A near fine copy, the front cover of which is slightly creased, but has very few tears. Pages extremely clean, supple and much less browned than usual. Other than Chandler's "A complete novelette", contents include the Editor's "Firearms And Crime" - Frederick Nebel's "Fan Dance" - Paul Cain's "Death Song" - Dwight V. Babcock's "G-Man Chuck Thompson" - W.T. Ballard's "Numbers with Lead". In addition there are the four features "Winners of the Ninth Monthly Warner Bros.-Black Mask Contest", "Continuing the Great Warner Bros.-Black Mask Mystery Story Contest", "The Murder of Dr. Harrigan Groom", and "In February". This is a Canadian copy. On the differences between US and Canadian editions, prominent pulp seller David T. Alexander wrote to us: "In many cases collectors will pay the same for the Canadian and US printings from the mid and early 1930s. There are some collectors who feel that certain Canadian variants are much more elusive than the American version and I think this is probably correct as it does not seem that the publisher would send more copies to Canada than to the US in the 1930s when much of Canada was wilderness. The only difference in the 1930s editions is the cover price in Canadian funds and the line on the cover that says 'Printed in Canada'. The contents and ads are almost always the same as the US editions. Many historians think they were printed in the same print run at a US printing company, with the Canadian variation printed with the slight cover changes at the end of the run. In the 1940s the Canadian copies were probably printed in Canada as these have different covers, different ads for Canadian businesses with Canadian addresses, and the stories did not follow the same sequence as the US copies. Of course, the Chandler era was not in the 1940s." Malvern, hotel owner and PI, clears up the case of a mob-biased senator who is blackmailed by what turns out not to be his daughter born out of wedlock and falls for a girl called Jean Adrian - a tramp with guts and deep blue eyes. "Ted Malvern, 'All American sucker', wants to see for himself what is behind the guns at Cyrano's."

        Nothing So Monstrous

      New York: Pynson Printers. 1936. First. First Separate Edition (originally published as part of The Pastures of Heaven, 1932); Goldstone A2f; noting that the paper supply allowed only 370 copies to be printed. Lightly worn at the edges, about fine. Published for subscribers to use as Christmas gifts, the colophon was customized with the subscriber&#39;s name following "made by the Pynson Printers of New York at the request of --- for presentation to [blank]." Goldstone notes 50 copies were so designated for Elmer Adler, 100 for Frederick B. Adams, Jr., 150 for Ben Abramson, 50 for Edwin J. Beinecke and 20 for antiquarian bookseller Howard Mott (although evidently fewer were issued with his name; only one is known). Unknown to Goldstone, this is one of apparently only six copies with Steinbeck&#39;s name in the colophon. In a letter to Frederick B. Adams, Jr., one of the publishers, Steinbeck requested six copies as he couldn&#39;t "afford any more." Steinbeck has filled in the colophon with the name of Elsie and Martin Ray, and has Inscribed upside-down on the rear free endpaper, "For Rusty and Elsie, Whose back rubbing has made me a little less monstrous than I have been. John Steinbeck." In the proper place, right side up on the front free endpaper, the author has Inscribed "I am a dope (see last page) John Steinbeck." Steinbeck was a guest at Martin (Rusty) and Elsie Ray&#39;s Mt. Eden Winery in Saratoga, California, where he is said to have written a portion of The Grapes of Wrath. .

In near fine unfaded dust-wrapper, merely a few signs of minor edgewear. A lovely copy. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Conan Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe&#39;s best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterize his work, as well as the Gothic horror of &#39;The Pit and the Pendulum&#39; with other similarly wierd tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin; the history of the detective story begins with the publication of &#39;The Murders In the Rue Morgue&#39; (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent death, in cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe&#39;s mystery of &#39;The Purloined Letter&#39; is a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond.

      Visionary Publishing Co, Everett 1936 - First edition. [The precise state/issue/printing of this variant has not been clearly established. Nor, for that matter, has the exact priority been clearly established for nearly any of combination of variants that have been reported]. This is one of an unknown, but reportedly small, number of copies that surfaced years ago, from storage in the publisher's archives. The text paper is quite white and fresh, as is the paper stock of the Dust Wrapper. The the black cloth casing [that is, the boards] is consistent with most others that I have seen. Book and Dust Wrapper [white paper, without the Frank Utpatel artwork] both have horizontal, mixed case, silver lettering. 158 pages, illustrated. As New [About Fine] copy in As New [Fine] Dust Wrapper. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
