Hiney, Tom & MacShane, Frank - The Raymond Chandler Papers

New York, Atlantic Monthly, 2000. First American edition.  A collection of selected letters and nonfiction from 1909 to 1959, the year of Chandler's passing.  An inveterate letter writer, the author's letters reveal something of a stream of consciousness whereby he might start a letter by writing of Truman, then veer off into his cat, the theater, Russian literature, and who knows what-all.  Fine in fine DJ with the latter showing just a touch of rubbing.  $25.00.
