    First Edition of Harper Lee's Classic To Kill a Mockingbird

    Harper Lee. To Kill a Mockingbird. Philadelphia and New York: 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. Price-clipped 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 minimal light wear and fading around the edges, and a couple of very small scuff marks. Last few leaves of text, including the rear free endpaper, have slight soft creases. The jacket has no restoration, and minor rubbing around the edges as is typical with this book. A few minuscule chips and slight short tears at the corners, and a small faint dampstain to the top of the rear panel. A very good, handsome 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 Pulitzer prize for 1961.
