Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition hardback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  Minor bumps to head and tail of book spine.  Some tanning to pages.  The dust jacket is complete, still shows the price but is showing signs of wear to the extremities.  Some creasing at top and bottom of jacket spine to correspond with the bumps.

FACSIMILE signature to half title (Elmore Leonard died 2 years before the publication of this book).

SYNOPSIS  “When Elmore Leonard died in 2013, he left behind a 60-year legacy of crime novels, many of which have become modern classics.  He also left behind a treasure trove of unpublished early stories.

Largely written during his years as a copy writer at a Detroit advertising agency, these stories find Leonard exploring far-flung locations, from the bars of small-town New Mexico to a military base in Kuala Lumpur.  They also introduce us to unforgettable characters, some of whom – like ageing lawman Charlie Martz and former matador Eladio Montoya – star in his other works but were born in these pages.”
