Farewell, My Lovely
Hamish Hamilton, new edition 1949
Originally published in 1940, this being a copy of the new edition 1949 with different dustrapper art.
Hardback in dustwrapper. 196pp. 7.5 x 5 inches approx. (192mm x 130mm).
Dustwrapper a little rubbed and worn to spine ends and corner tips; short tear to top edge of rear panel; ‘nibble’ with loss to bottom edge of front panel. Light shelf wear to covers otherwise nice and clean; spotted/foxed to page edges and dusty to top edge otherwise generally clean throughout.
Overall, light wear but otherwise a nicely preserved copy – attractive.
