New York: Random House, (1965).
Hardcover. First edition. Very small stain on page edges, spine ends lightly sunned, near fine in a fair to good only age-toned dustwrapper completely split at the front joint, extremities chipped and torn. NOT the book club edition which often is offered as a first edition. Capote's neighbor and close friend Harper Lee acted as his secretary during his investigations into the tragic murders. Basis for the excellent film adapted for the screen and directed by Richard Brooks, with Robert Blake, Scott Wilson, John Forsythe, Quincy Jones's music, and Conrad Hall's famous cinematography.
