This is a 1931 first edition and first printing of The Glass Key by Dashiell Hammett, who also wrote The Maltese Falcon and other detective stories, published in New York by Alfred A. Knopf Inc. in 1931. It’s said to be the author’s favorite of his novels. This is a hardcover book covered in pale green cloth; it’s missing its dust jacket, unfortunately. I came across it cleaning out a family house.
