    Harper Lee. To Kill a Mockingbird. Philadelphia & New York: J. B. Lippincott & Company, [1960].
    First edition of Harper Lee's first and only novel. Octavo. 196 pages.

    Publisher's quarter green cloth over brown boards. Spine decoratively stamped and lettered in brown. Very slightly skewed, spine very slightly darkened, top edge slightly dust soiled, tiny ding to upper edge of front board. A very good copy. In the original color pictorial dust jacket designed by Shirley Smith. First issue dust jacket with the $3.95 price still intact on the front flap, the Truman Capote blurb in green on the front flap, the Jonathan Daniels blurb in black on the rear flap, and the photograph of Harper Lee on the rear panel by Truman Capote. Jacket with minor edgewear and a few tiny chips, a small chip to the top edge of the rear panel at the spine fold, and some slight browning, but totally unrestored.

    "Someone rare has written this very fine first novel: a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humor. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable.-Truman Capote" (front flap of dust jacket).

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
