CHANDLER, Raymond

CHANDLER, Raymond Playback

Houghton Mifflin, 1958.

First American Edition. Original brown cloth in Richard Tiback designed dustwrapper. Author's presentation copy to Donald Yates, literary scholar and detective fiction expert. Inscribed "With kindest regards, Raymond Chandler", on the front endpaper, under Yates' ownership signature. A fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper that shows a little light rubbing to the spine ends.

Dr. Donald Yates is professor emeritus of Spanish-American Literature at Michigan State University. He has written extensively on the subject of detective fiction, particularly in Spanish literature and had a regular correspondence with Chandler on the subject.
Inscribed Chandler is uncommon, particularly as this edition was preceded by its English counterpart.
