Dashiell Hammett Dain Curse First Edition

The Dain Curse is a suspenseful classic centered around Hammett’s original recurring character Continental Op and first published in 1929. Like Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, The Dain Curse was originally published serially in the magazine Black Mask. First edition copies of the book are known to have the typo “dopped in” instead of “dropped in” on page 260 and feature a cover with bright yellow cloth boards and a skull and crossbones front and center.

A first edition of The Dain Curse recently sold for nearly $28,000.
