Description

    A Superb Copy of the Signed Limited Edition of
    In Cold Blood

    Truman Capote. In Cold Blood. New York: Random House, [1965]. First edition, number 321 of 500 specially bound copies printed on special paper and signed by the author. Octavo. 343 pages. Publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering on a red spine label, publisher's device and name in gilt at the bottom of the spine, as well as the author's initials in gilt on a red oval on the front panel. Original clear plastic jacket. Top edge stained maroon. Mustard-colored endpapers. Housed in the publisher's red paper slipcase. Very minor occasional rubbing to slipcase. Still, a superb copy, much better than usually seen.
    "The book is neither a who-done-it nor a will-they-be-caught, since the answers to both questions are known from the outset... Instead, the book's suspense is based largely on a totally new idea in detective stories: the promise of gory details, and the withholding of them until the end" (Tom Wolfe, "Pornoviolence"). From the library of John Carroll Collins.

    This is why I like purchasing from Heritage, you are so customer oriented and with your size and my meager purchases it always amazes me how quickly you respond.
