I, the Jury (First UK Edition)
Price: 700.00 USD
London: Arthur Barker, 1952. First UK Edition. Very Good plus in a Very Good dust jacket. Some light soil to the boards. Jacket has a chip at the crown (titling not affected) and a couple of smaller chips at the corners, with light rubbing overall. A very presentable copy of Spillane's first book, the first Mike Hammer mystery, and the progenitor to a whole generation of books featuring ultra-violent detective heroes. Basis for the 1953 film noir.
