To Kill a Mockingbird.Philadelphia, J. B. Lippincott Company, 1960 Stock Code: 133798
NotesFirst edition, first printing, first issue jacket. Lee's debut novel became an immediate bestseller and won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. It is "an authentic and nostalgic story which in rare fashion at once puts together the tenderness and the tragedy of the South. They are the inseparable ingredients of a region much reported but seldom so well understood" (Jonathan Daniels).
The first issue jackets have, as here, the Truman Capote blurb printed in green to the front flap and the Jonathan Daniels blurb on the rear flap.
Octavo. Original green cloth-backed brown boards, spine lettered in brown. With the dust jacket. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery.
A little faint foxing to edges and endpapers; a near-fine copy in the bright jacket, couple of nicks to extremities and some slight rubbing and creasing.
