First Publication of Raymond Chandler's Story "The King in Yellow" in: Dime Detective, March 1938
Chicago: Popular Publications Inc., 1938 - First Edition, First Printing. Chicago: Popular Publications Inc., 1938. Vol. 26, No. 4. An excellent copy: it is really quite sharp, essentially in very fine condition. The front cover has a slight smudge to the "D" and "E" of "DETECTIVE". The pages are near white. The head of spine is a tiny bit bumped. There is virtually no other wear to this copy. Apart from Chandler's "Gripping Complete Novel-Length Murder-Action Thriller", contents include Carroll John Daly's "A Corps on the House: A Race Williams Story" - Frederick C. Davis's "Crimson Broadcast: A Keyhole Kerry Story" - William Edward Hayes's "Death by Enlargement" - Maxwell Hawkins's "R Murder" - A Department "Ready for the Rackets" - The Editor's "In Our Face Red!" and "The April Thrill Docket". A small portion of this story went into The High Window, so: "Meet The King in Yellow who stepped off his bandshell to mix murder with his blue notes and only achieved a corny interlude when Steve Grace, house dick at the Carlton, started to best his time." This item from our catalogue 9, which you can download at ygrbooks.ch. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
