E bravo Peter Chambers! [My Business Is Murder] (Italian hardcover, 1958)

SKU: 125716

Kane, Henry (author)
Milan: Gialli Giumar 2, 1958. Translation of "My Business Is Murder." Slightly larger than standard paperback. Featured is unnamed model in white nightie & heels on the front jacket panel. Likely an Italian model, as other models were credited when known on the jacket front flap. The Gialli line is one of Italy's finest mid-century offerings, Italian translations of (mostly) American crime fiction w/ lush full-color pin-ups of the era's most popular models, even Jayne Mansfield, Lili St. Cyr, & June Wilkinson have appeared on the covers, & this particular series was rather short-lived (others ran into print runs of 100+). Very Good in Very Good jacket. Jacket tears. Uncommon.  [Book ID: 125716]  [Mystery and Crime Fiction]
