Description

    Mickey Spillane. Original Typescript for I, the Jury. [New York: August 28, 1946]. Compositor's copy, hand-corrected throughout by Spillane, with marginal notes in other hands. Loose quarto sheets (8.5 x 11 inches). Complete with 195 leaves, five leaves of preliminaries and 190 comprising the text. Printed rectos only. Textual leaves three-hole punched at a later date, with adhesive paper hole reinforcements; preliminaries with old paper clipping and diagramed onion skin paper inserted. Page edges worn, particularly on the preliminaries, with occasional minor paper loss to margins; faint marginal discoloration throughout; several leaves soiled, as expected. Very good. Mickey Spillane's debut novel, and the world's introduction to detective Mike Hammer. Source for the 1953 3-D film noir by Harry Essex. A significant artifact from the hard-boiled canon. From the Estate of Mickey Spillane.
