About this Item: Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1934. First edition of one of the most important crime novels of the twentieth century, adapted as a motion picture seven times. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly Signed by James M. Cain on the front free endpaper. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing to the crown. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very nice example, rare and desirable signed. "It is sometimes easy to trace a literary genre to its source, and James M. Cain's first novel, The Postman Always Rings Twice, is the noir novel that paved the way for all the noir fiction that followed. The famous film starring Lana Turner and John Garfield is notoriously dark, but the novel is even more full of despair and devoid of hope. It is a short book--little more than a novella--but its searing characterization and depiction of tawdry greed and lust is branded into every reader's memory" (Otto Penzler). Listed by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. Seller Inventory # 114122

About this Item: Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1934. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First edition. Boards are slightly soiled and near fine, with a supplied proof dustwrapper which came directly from the estate of the artist Arthur Hawkins, Jr. The jacket has been folded with a crease at the spine, Knopf's small Borzoi logo has been cut away from the rear panel (possibly for another design by Hawkins), and Hawkins has written the date "1933" on the front flap, although the book wasn't released until 1934. However the jacket is exceptionally bright and otherwise fine, and about 1/4" taller than the finished version, to which we have compared it (although otherwise identical to it). The jacket was unsigned by Hawkins, unlike most of his work, but is credited to him in Heller and Chwast's seminal study of jacket design, *Jackets Required* - the survival of this proof in his estate seems to confirm their research. A milestone of hardboiled literature that was the basis for the classic 1946 film featuring Lana Turner and John Garfield (as well as at least three other versions). *Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone.* This proof jacket is likely unique.

About this Item: Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1934. First edition. First printing of the bleakest and most shocking of the 20th century's classic crime novels, in the scarce original dust jacket. A genre-defining blueprint for the golden age of film noir and a masterfully brutal anti-melodrama, THE POSTMAN draws the boundaries of a world driven by loveless passion and existential despair, where violence is certain and its victims subject to an unknowable blend of fate, chance, and the malice of their closest companions. 7.5'' x 5''. Original orange and blue cloth. In original unclipped ($2.00) dust jacket. Dark blue topstain. [8], 188 pages. Contemporary review slip (4'' x 5.5'') laid in. Typical offsetting to endpapers, spot of soil to lower corner of text block. Jacket with gentle edgewear, a few spots of staining to jacket flaps, and a short closed tear at spine head, spine somewhat sunned. Near fine in very good plus jacket. Seller Inventory # 1165
