Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Co., 1960. First book club edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Harper Lee on the half title page. Additionally inscribed by Truman Capote on the rear panel of the dust jacket photograph of Lee, which was taken by Capote. Fine in the original dust jacket with some wear and tear.
