Grisham, John
A Time To Kill: Novel of Retribution.
New York: Wynwood Press, 1989. First edition of Grisham's first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page in the year of publication, "For Kenneth Haxton- Father of my good friend Ayres. I hope you enjoy it this book. Best Regards John Grisham 12-29-89." The author and Ayres Haxton served together in the Mississippi House of Representatives at the time Grisham wrote his early novels. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. Jacket design by Susanne DeMarco. A nice association. A Time To Kill was rejected by numerous publishers before Wynwood Press eventually published it in a small first printing of only 5,000 copies. "Grisham's pleasure in relating the Byzantine complexities of Clanton politics is contagious and he tells a good story...An enjoyable book" (Library Journal). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books [United States]
