2 Hecht, Ben The Florentine Dagger: A Novel for Amateur Detectives
New York Boni and Liveright (c.1923) First Edition Hardcover Good Illustrated by Wallace Smith

(B&W frontispiece + 4 plates) Mystery novel, the protagonist of which is "Prince Julien de Medici -- of Broadway." Basis for the 1935 film of the same name, directed by Robert Florey, with which Hecht himself does not appear to have been involved. NOTE that a prefatory note about the Wallace Smith illustrations refers to "the five illustrations contained in the following pages," but in fact one of those is the frontispiece, preceding that note, and therefore only four illustrations are actually to be found in "the following pages."
