Notes

Galley sheets sent out in advance of publication to garner reviews. With the editor's typed cover letter to Vincent Starrett the noted author and collector of detective fiction. "If you find in any of this grounds for comment, we should like nothing better than to have a letter from you in our correspondence column in the January issue. In any case you may enjoy what he has to say about Dashiell Hammett." A rare printed manifestation of the earliest version of one of the greatest essays pertaining to the detective story. And a fine association.
