Dashiell Hammett Signed book Red Harvest

10 Feb

Signed book: Red Harvest. Second printing. NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. Hardcover with a facsimile dust jacket, 5.5 x 7.75, 270 pages. Signed and inscribed on a free end page in fountain pen, “For James Starr, with best regards, Dashiell Hammett, Hollywood, Oct 3, 1930.” Autographic condition: fine, with a small spot of soiling to the lower right and a bit of feathering to ink. Book condition: VG/NF. Red Harvest was Hammett’s first novel and narrated by the Continental Op, a frequent detective character in his fiction. This is considered one of the greatest detective novels ever written, and books signed by Hammett are quite scarce, especially from this early point in his career. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
