In Cold Blood. A True Account Of A Multiple Murder And Its Consequences
New York, NY: Random House, 1965 [1966]. [True Crime Novel] FIRST EDITION together with an ADVANCE REVIEW COPY. Two volumes. Octavo (25 x 18cm), pp.[12] 343 [1]. Publisher's brown cloth with gilt titles and silver decoration, brown endpapers, top edge tinted black, and fore-edge untrimmed. With the dust-jacket designed by S. Neil Fujita, priced at $5.95 with correct date code (1/66) and five-line publisher imprint to rear flap. Advance copy identical, but without tinted top edge, and with soft covers instead of cloth boards and jacket. Presented together in a red quarter morocco fleece-lined clamshell box, with gilt titles to spine and matching cloth over boards and sides. Both volumes lightly toned throughout, as usual. Gentle bruising to jacket edges, and a little extra toning to spine. A fine copy. Review copy read, with a cocked and heavily browned spine. Rubbing to joints; covers toned. Very good. Attractively presented in the new protective box. Capote's ground breaking non-fiction work on the murder of a Nebraska family in 1959. Dated 1965 to title page, but actually published in January 1966. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
