Footprints in the Sands of Crime.
An offprint from the October issue of The Sewanee Review. In his essay, McLuhan traces the line of decent of the detective in literature, from Machiavelli and Christopher Marloew, to Sherlock Holmes and Hammett’s Sam Spade. It was published five years prior to McLuhan’s first book, The Mechanical Book. Uncommon.
