Book Gallery: THE CONTIENTAL OP

 
Today we present some of the many covers devoted to Dashiell Hammett's Man With The Unnamed Name. Excluded are books we saw here on Friday and Sunday, those that will appear tomorrow, and those with only postage-stamp sized images on the 'net. If I've guessed wrong on some these foreign jobs, I'm trust you multi-lingual detectives will chastise me.

My favorite is the 1940's green cover.

WOW!!

Amazing how many there are, but then the book has been in print for a long time. If I'm not mistaken there is a translation into Japanese but I have never seen a cover of it.

Love all those great covers! Rick Robinson is reading the Continental Op, too. And I just reread THE MALTESE FALCON. Clearly, Great Minds think alike.

"The Gutting of Couffignal" has a great closing paragraph.
