£1,500.00Price

FIRST UK EDITION published by Hamish Hamilton in 1966. The wrapper is in excellent condition with no toning or marks. It has not been price clipped. The book has very light toning to the text block. Also a light indentation mark to the side text block. A small penned mark to the lower text block. Overall a near fine copy with this one being particularly rare due to the author's inscription on the front free end paper. 

 

A very sharp copy of Capote's classic crime title. The non-fiction novel is about the brutal slaying of the clutter family by two  would-be robbers. It would be remembered as a trail-blazing experiment that has influenced many writers since. The book was successfully adapted into a film of the same name in 1967 and again in 2005 as the biographical portrait Capote. There hasn't been any record of the UK edition being signed by the author at auction over the past 30 years. Making this one very scarce.
