The High Window. [The Brasher Doubloon].

by Raymond. Chandler

Publication: The World Publishing Company, 1946, Cleveland and New York

Second printing of the Tower Books edition. First edition with THE BRASHER DOUBLOON dust jacket. Book cover and title page are printed THE HIGH WINDOW, but the dust jacket is titled THE BRASHER DOUBLOON. Bruccoli's Raymond Chandler, A Descriptive Bibliography page 21, # A 3.1.d says, "Reprinted 1946 with dust jacket title, The Brasher Doubloon." Pages uniformly browned, else a fine copy in dust jacket with a hint of wear to the foot of the spine. Really the finest copy of this title that we have seen. Attractive dust jacket illustrations from the Fox film, based on THE HIGH WINDOW, which starred George Montgomery as Philip Marlowe. An exceptional copy.
