    A Marvelous First Edition of Harper Lee's Classic, in a Wonderful Example of the Original First Issue Dust Jacket

    Harper Lee. To Kill a Mockingbird. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, [1960]. First edition, in the first issue dust jacket. Octavo. 296 pages. Publisher's light green cloth back over rust paper boards. First issue dust jacket with Capote blurb in green on the front flap, the $3.95 price, the Jonathan Daniels blurb on the rear flap, and the Capote portrait of Harper Lee on the rear panel. A vibrant example of the book, with very clean text. Very light overall wear to the jacket, with minimal wear at the spine ends, folds, and corners. One tiny closed tear at the spine head. A couple of light creases to the flaps. A stunning example of Harper Lee's only novel, which won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Literature, in near fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
