Ex-library book, but still in quite good condition - usual ex-lib type markings such as spine and front sticker and a couple internal stamps, jacket attached to book. Cover has light edgewear, corner bumping and small paper loss at bottom corners. Paper split at spine inside back cover but no loose pages. Pages otherwise clean and intact. Scuffed laminate has been removed from front and back cover and jacket is bright and clean, with minor scuffing. Profusely illustrated in colour & b/w. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 144 pages; From Kirkus Reviews: What do Sam Spade, Doc Savage, Tarzan, and the Shadow have in common? The same thing as Raymond Chandler, Isaac Asimov, Cornell Woolrich, and H. P. Lovecraft: They all cut their teeth on the pulps--which are accorded a magnificently illustrated, authoritative homage here by Brooklyn-based writer Server....Server organizes his unwieldy subject into categories of pulps: adventure, romance and sex, horror and fantasy, private eye, weird menace, science fiction. Each receives a lively capsule history that covers trends, reader (and sometimes, as in the case of the ``Spicys, '' government) response, and writers' bios--which, though sketchy (Hammett's Hollywood experience gets one sentence) , resurrect a number of relatively obscure but seminal and fascinating figures..... (890)
