Description:
Dating from July 31, 1944 - July 5, 1945, typed single space (one letter is typed at one and a half spaces) on thin, air mail paper. Three of the letters are two pages, and the rest are one page each. One letter is signed “Dash,” and the rest in pen and in pencil as “SDH.” There are a few small corrections in Hammett’s hand and an occasional note in Mrs. Whitfield’s, who was married to Hammett’s friend and hard-boiled writing colleague, Raoul Whitfield. The letters reflect Hammett’s warm, intimate feelings for the recipient, and are mostly filled with cheery chat and stories of idle, lonely army life. “I’ve been half-seriously monkeying with the notion of doing --or trying --a longish poem that would be called ‘The Aleutians Don’t Give A Damn’...This notion too...will likely as not be put away in the drawer marked Projects thought up in the absence of women, which is already pretty full...Tonight I’m going to treat myself to a tub bath, the first in about fifteen months,… Read More

Description:
New York: King Features Syndicate,, 1935. His superb illustrations give the pulp fiction tales an unexpected patina of the haute monde Highly appealing original artwork for the strip published on 3 January 1935, by the creator of Flash Gordon, signed by the artist in the third panel. Alexander Raymond's place in the history of cartooning "is secure, established by his brilliance as an illustrator of four successful and influential comic strips … His work and [Harold] Foster's created the visual standard by which all such comic strips would henceforth be measured" (ANB). "In late 1933 King Features officials began looking for features to compete with two popular Sunday comic strips offered by rival syndicates – Buck Rogers, space adventures in a science fiction future, and Tarzan, jungle action in the mould set by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Raymond submitted samples for both and was awarded a Sunday page with Flash Gordon on the bottom two-thirds and Jungle Jim at the top. At the same time, Raymond… Read More

Description:
("Dashiell Hammett") in black fountain pen ink on pictorial Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer letterhead. Culver City, California, July 15, 1938. Also signed in green fountain pen ink by Eddie Mannix as Lowe’s Vice-President. 3 separate pages. Fine, fresh. For a sum of $12,500.00 Hammett agrees to let MGM have right of first refusal on any of his past writings, as well as any new writings to be created in the next year. The document goes into great detail on all specifics, effectively giving MGM control over his creative output past and present. Hammett's writing skill had failed him by this time. Although, he did manage to finish his final 144 page screen outline for "Another Thin Man." He was drinking heavily, had gambled away his earnings on the horse races, was in debt and owed six months on his penthouse suite at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel (Nolan p. 165). In 1943 he staged a brief comeback when he wrote the screenplay of Lillian Hellman's "Watch On The Rhine." Hammett… Read More

Description:
1944. One page, 8 1/2 x 11 in Fine condition with envelope. On "Yank" Alaska edition letterhead. Writing to an Army friend in Detroit "Don't let this paper fool you....It only means I'm using Yank's office tonight and I'm going to stop it and take my trade elsewhere if they don't put darker ribbons in their typewriters....Last week I wound up on a four-month--some ten thousand miles in all--romp....Anything you want to know about Alaska and the Aleutians, just ask me. Yes, the Eskimo girls at Nome are often very pretty, usually very good-natured and practically always very diseased. No, there's no sense in trying to rig up a sea otter poaching racket on Amchitka, because, while you could angle it OK there, you couldn't peddle the skins anywere except, perhaps, in the London black market. Yes, Kodiak is a little gem, whether you want to shoot, fish, drink or futz around with dames...." Hammett continues for another paragraph with discussion of his future travel plans, closing "I'm going to...get… Read More

Description:
To Prudence Whitfield, wife of Raoul Whitfield, a fellow "Black Mask" writer and one of Hammett's closest friends. Hammett and Prudence (Pru) shared a wealth of correspondence and many are written, signed or addressed in a manner that feed the speculation that they were lovers, even while he was in a relationship with Lillian Hellman. Our letter is addressed to "Pru darling" and signed, "Much love, sweetheart..." with initials "SDH." Hammett talks about the letters he had received from her, of which there were many. She apparently wrote daily at that time. He also talks about it being winter in Alaska, saying, "We're a pretty white world." He comments on life in the Army and about writing. "Of my own affairs in the Army there isn't a single God-damned bit of news," but notes that "sitting here at ease in my newspaper hut, putting on a little weight and practically bloated with health, I've no trouble being phlegmatic about it all. This is by no means the worst way of fighting a war that any enlisted… Read More

Description:
Hammett writes to Army buddy "Gottlieb...your go sounds like a good one, but I don't think I'd trade places with you. All the good goes aren't in the States. For instance, I'm now running a post daily newspaper and make my own hours, which means I usually choose to work at night, and we have an eleven p.m. mess for night workers. And then again it's more than six months since I have (1) answered a rollcall...(2) been in a formation...(3) taken a step as in marching of any kind, (4) tied a necktie around my neck, (5) shined a shoe, (6) had anything inspected, (7) had a crease in any of my clothes, (8) had to bother about whether I was in uniform - we wear whatever we like...(9) paid more than a nickel for a pack of cigarettes, (10) had to look at anybody policing an area, (11) had a lights-out time, (12) had to make a bed...(13) had to bother about how my clothes were hung or what was piled on my shelf or on the floor around my bed, (14) -- but that ought to be enough to give you the idea.

Ventura, CA: John Anthony Miller Studio, 2014. A rendered facsimile dust jacket for the 1930 first edition book of "The Maltese Falcon."

Jacket comes trimmed and enclosed in a Mylar jacket protector, ready to put on the book. There will be an attached signed label on the verso of the jacket signed and stating that this is a facsimile dust jacket. This jacket will also fit the very early printings by Knopf, but the later printings are a bit different from the first isue dust jacket issued in 1930. We can also make this jacket to fit the Grosset and Dunlap edition of the book, just let us know the dimensions. There is no extra charge for this. Thank you, John Anthony Miller, fine artist..
