    Inscribed and Signed by Raymond Chandler

    [Raymond Chandler]. Rockwell Kent. N by E. New York: Blue Ribbon Books, Inc., 1936.

    Eighth printing. Lovely full-page inscription by famed novelist and screenwriter Raymond Chandler on the front free endpaper: "To/ Skip and La Verne Joyce/ in memory/ of hard winters not/ spent in Greenland/ From/ Cissy and Ray Chandler/ December 25th 1936/ Corn Center, California". Octavo. 281 pages. Illustrated by the author.

    Original publisher's brick-red cloth with titles stamped in black on the spine. Spine panel slightly faded, boards spotted, more so on the rear board, small, partially torn off Santa Monica book shop label affixed to the lower left corner of the front free endpaper, contents toned. Trivial wear to dust jacket. A sound copy, most interesting with the Chandler inscription.
