Paris: Albien Michel, 1930. First French Edition (and correct first). Presentation copy, INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper. The large paper edition, one of 40 copies (this being No. 31) printed on Hollande paper.
Basis for two superb films: director Jean Renoir's "La Chienne" (1931) and the American film noir classic, "Scarlet Street" (1945), directed by Fritz Lang and starring Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett and Dan Duryea.
Very Good or better in original wrappers, slightly cocked with an equally slight roll and some faint creasing to the spine panel.
