Item Description: Avenel Books, New York, 1980. Large Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Reprint. Pages toned, ink gift note on front flyleaf. 726 pp. Brief introduction by Lillian Hellman. "Complete in one volume, the five books that created the modern American crime novel. In a few years of extraordinary creative energy, Dashiell Hammett invented the modern American crime novel. In the words of Raymond Chandler, "Hammett gave murder back to the kind of people that commit it for reasons, not just to provide a corpse. He put these people down on paper as they were, and he made them talk and think in the language they customarily used for these purposes." The five novels that Hammett published between 1929 and 1934, collected here in one volume, have become part of modern American culture, creating archetypal characters and establishing the ground rules and characteristic tone for a whole tradition of hardboiled writing. Drawing on his own experiences as a Pinkerton detective, Hammett gave a harshly realistic edge to novels that were at the same time infused with a spirit of romantic adventure. His lean and deliberately simplified prose won admiration from such contemporaries as Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, and William Faulkner. Each novel is distinct in mood and structure. Red Harvest (1929) epitomizes the violence and momentum of his Black Mask stories about the anonymous detective the Continental Op, in a raucous and nightmarish evocation of political corruption and gang warfare in a western mining town. In The Dain Curse (1929) the Op returns in a more melodramatic tale involving jewel theft, drugs, and a religious cult. With The Maltese Falcon (1930) and its protagonist Sam Spade, Hammett achieved his most enduring popular success, a tightly constructed quest story shot through with a sense of disillusionment and the arbitrariness of personal destiny. The Glass Key (1931) is a further exploration of city politics at their most scurrilous. His last novel was The Thin Man (1934), a ruefully comic tale paying homage to the traditional mystery form and featuring Nick and Nora Charles, the sophisticated inebriates who would enjoy a long afterlife in the movies."Keywords: NOIR MYSTERY AMERICAN CRIME NOVEL FICTION MALTESE FALCON RED HARVEST DAIN CURSE GLASS KEY THIN MAN.

Item Description: Diogenes Verlag, Zürich, 1996. Softcover. Book Condition: gut. Erste Aufl.. Illustrierte Broschur. Einband und Schnitte nachgedunkelt und berieben, die obere Ecke des Hinterdeckels mit kleinem Knick, der Vorderdeckel aufgrund montiertem Exlibris leicht gewellt, ansonsten noch gute Erhaltung (2-3). Der Malteser Falke (engl. Originaltitel: The Maltese Falcon) ist ein Roman von Dashiell Hammett aus dem Jahr 1930, der dreimal verfilmt wurde (1931, 1936 unter dem Titel Satan Met a Lady und 1941). Der Malteser Falke selbst ist dabei eine wertvolle, mit Edelsteinen besetzte Goldstatuette, die zum Zweck der Tarnung schwarz bemalt (möglicherweise emailliert) wurde. Dashiell Hammett kehrt in seinem Roman die klassische Rollenverteilung des Krimis von „Schurke" und „Detektiv" um. Im Verlauf des Romans wird es immer deutlicher, dass jeder Charakter in erster Linie seinen eigenen Vorteil sucht, ohne Moral oder Gesetze zu beachten. Der Leser wird darüber im Dunkeln gelassen, ob der Privatdetektiv Sam Spade in seinen Verhandlungen mit den Verbrechern ernsthaft an einer Zusammenarbeit interessiert ist, oder dies nur vorgibt, um den Fall zu klären. Nur ganz zum Schluss, als sich herausstellt, dass der „Schatz" nicht gehoben werden kann, werden die geschehenen Morde aufgeklärt. Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Krimis wird hier die Gesellschaft nicht in die „normalen" Rechtschaffenen und die „unnormalen" Verbrecher eingeteilt. Jeder erscheint als (potentiell) korrupt; Der Malteser Falke bricht mit traditionellen Klischees und gilt als einer der ersten Kriminalromane des Realismus. Die Verfilmung von 1941 mit dem Titel Die Spur des Falken (unter der Regie von John Huston und mit Humphrey Bogart in der Hauptrolle als Sam Spade), sowie Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor und Peter Lorre, gilt heute als einer der Klassiker des Kriminalfilms und bildet mit einigen anderen etwa zur gleichen Zeit entstandenen Filmen den klassischen Kern des Film noir.
