Fifteen Rare editions of Dashiell Hammett novels AND a Maltese Falcon replica were pinched from John’s Grill, a century-old restaurant and home to a museum in San Franciso dedicated to Hammett. A $25,000 reward offered for return of the Bird, no word on the reward for the books. Indeed I didn’t pass this along before as I had only read that the Bird had flown the coop, but now I hear the books had gone bye bye as well. Strange that the books we overlooked for so long. If they are the RIGHT books, they would exceed the reward for the promotional prop. [partially via Philobiblos]
