Description

When the Folio Society first published this box set of Raymond Chandler’s iconic novels (1989), it was the first occasion in which they used a silhouette on the boards of each book, incrementally receded so that, when the books are placed in their correct order, the image appears also across the spines.

This is the third impression (2000) with new illustrations by Geoff Grandfield replacing those by Sue Bradbury which appeared in the first and second impressions.

Chandler’s novels (The Big Sleep; Farewell My Lovely; The High Window; The Lady In The Lake; The Little Sister; The Long Goodbye; Playback) have never been published singly by the Folio Society despite having produced a couple of his short story collections.

A beautiful and very uncommon set in excellent condition, appearing largely unread.
