Publisher's light blue paper-covered boards, spine stamped and lettered in silver, publisher's device stamped in blind on front board, in original dust jacket. Spine gently leaning, board edges worn with faint dulling of the binding. Endpapers faintly discolored with a light tidemark on the rear free endpaper. Dust jacket with some light edgewear and a short (just over one inch) closed tear at the base of front spine fold; trace foxing and a couple small stains to the rear panel and rear flap. A nicely-preserved, very good copy of a cheaply produced book.

    [Together with:] Mickey Spillane. The Big Kill. New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, 1951. First edition, signed bookplate with note affixed to half-title-page. Octavo. 224 pages. Publisher's dark blue paper-covered boards, spine lettered and stamped in dark red, publisher's device stamped in dark red on the front board, in original dust jacket. Board edges and joints worn; backstrip dulled. Faint offsetting to endpapers. Dust jacket edges lightly worn, with a few chips or short closed tears addressed with tape on verso; small dampstain to crown and a few more at the edges of the rear flap fold; spine panel faintly dulled; trace rubbing or minor soiling. About very good. The fifth Mike Hammer mystery.

    [And:] Mickey Spillane. Kiss Me Deadly. New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, 1952. First edition, signed by the author with a note on the front endpaper: "Hi - / There's little I / can say - except / a big hello! / Mickey Spillane." Octavo. 251, [5, blank] pages. Publisher's red paper-covered boards, spine lettered and stamped in silver, publisher's device stamped in blind on the front board, in original dust jacket. Front board lightly rubbed; edge and joints a little worn. A touch of foxing to the endpapers; over-opened at page 130 and 159 with gathering just slightly sprung, a couple other, less severe, over-openings throughout. Dust jacket edges worn with chips at edges of folds and a few short closed tears; front panel rubbed with a small bruise; margins and verso somewhat foxed. Still, about very good. The sixth Mike Hammer mystery and source for his best-remembered film adaptation with Robert Aldrich's 1955 fever dream starring Ralph Meeker. From the KoKo Collection.
