The Long Good-Bye by Raymond Chandler 1st / 1st, 1953
London: Hamish Hamilton, (1953).
First edition. This is a very good or better copy. The dust wrapper, illustrated by Fritz Wegner is clean and highly presentable; the corners feature a mild wear, the top and bottom edges are mildly scuffed, and the rear panel is browned in places. It has not been price clipped. The boards are covered in a deep red cloth and are without marks. They are tightly bound at the spine and sharp at the corners, The text blocks are bright and white but has mild foxing on the side. Overall, this is a very good or better copy and is particularly rare in this condition. The sixth novel featuring the private investigator, Philip Marlowe.
