Notes

First edition, first printing. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "to Raymond Chandler Jacquin Sanders" and with Chandler's La Jolla ownership stamp beneath which he as written "From Little Brown & Co - God Knows why!" In a letter to the budding writer James Fox in May 1954 Chandler writes, "Your publishers for no reason that I can understand sent me a book called Freak Show by Jacquin Sanders (where the hell does a character get a name like that?). I haven't read it and don't want to."
