        I am a Fugitive from a Georgia Chain Gang!

      New York: Vanguard Press, 1932. First Edition. The author's first book, originally issued as a six-part serial in the pages of True Detective Mysteries in 1931, and picked up by Vanguard the following year. A slightly fictionalized but largely autobiographical account, written while in hiding, of the author's adventures with the Georgia penal system, beginning with his arrest for stealing $5.80 from an Atlanta grocer in 1922. Burns's intent was to expose the brutality and corruption of the chain gang system, and he succeeded; the book created an instant furor upon publication and became a bestseller for Vanguard. It served as the basis for the Mervyn LeRoy film released later the same year, starring Paul Muni in the role of Burns. The film heralded a new genre - the prison drama - and won three Oscars including a Best Actor Award for Muni. Copies in dustjacket are rare, this being only the second jacketed copy we have handled. SUVAK 38. Octavo (21cm); light gray cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in blue on spine and front panel; blue topstain; dustjacket; 257pp. Contemporary owner's name and date to front endpaper, light foxing to right edge of textblock, with some light offsetting to endpapers and a few faint splash marks to topstain; Near Fine.
