    Description

    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, lettered in a darker green on the spine. First issue dust jacket with Capote blurb in green on the front flap, the Jonathan Daniels blurb on the rear flap and the Capote portrait of Harper Lee on the rear panel. Book has light wear and fading around the edges with modest soiling on the top page edge. The jacket has minor rubbing around the edges. A few small chips and slight short tears at the spine ends and corners. A very good copy, better than is typically encountered with this title.

    An important and scarce book, of which only 5,000 copies were printed. This is Harper Lee's only novel, which won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Literature.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
