In the UK Chandler’s books were published by Hamish Hamilton. Hamish ‘Jamie’ Hamilton and Raymond became good friends, corresponding over many years and HH was – and still is – a great home for Chandler’s books. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of his death, they have released hardcover editions of The Big Sleep, Farewell, My Lovely, The Lady in the Lake, The Little Sister and The Long Goodbye. As you will see from this long, slightly dull post on the Penguin blog, they tried to base the covers on the first editions of the books and in that they were largely successful. I look forward to getting my hands on a set when I get home.
