First Printing. Octavo; red cloth, with titles stamped in black and gray on spine and front panel; 306pp. Inscribed in the year of publication to Edward G. Robinson and his wife: "August 29, 1934 / For Mr. and Mrs. Edward G. Robinson, sincere best wishes / W.R. Burnett." Some faint, scattered soil to spine and panels, with a few foxed spots to text edges; Very Good+. Dustjacket is unclipped, lightly rubbed along joints and spine ends, with a few short edge tears; Very Good+ to Near Fine - an extremely well-preserved example. A significant association between Burnett and Robinson, who played the iconic role of Rico in the 1931 film 'Little Caesar,' based on Burnett's 1929 debut novel. A terrific contemporary inscription, and one of the best Burnett association copies we've seen or handled. Bookseller Inventory #
