New York: Random House, 1949. 8vo, (8), 209pp. Title-page with tinted illustration in blue/grey. Original black cloth, grey dust-jacket lettered in white, lower cover with the iconic photo of Capote by Cecil Beaton. First edition, with the price present on the front d/j flap $2.75. Inscribed by Capote: “For Mr. and Mrs. William Schimpf Truman Capote”. A miraculously fine copy, with the Rockwell Kent bookplate of Fred Adams whose sale catalog listed Capote’s first four books inscribed to the same couple, making one wonder if they were family friends or otherwise connected to Capote. Despite going from the recipients via Adams and at least one auction, through another owner to a bookseller in Brooklyn to a bookseller in San Francisco, the book is in virtually flawless condition.
