Condition: See description

New York: Random House, 1958. First Edition. First Edition. A collection of the title novella and three short stories: "House of Flowers," "A Diamond Guitar" and "A Christmas Memory," with the title novella serving as the basis for the 1961 film directed by Blake Edwards and starring Audrey Hepburn in perhaps her most iconic role. Near Fine in a Very Good dust jacket. Jacket has a couple of short closed tears at the extremities, one closed tear at the front joint, a hint of fading to the spine panel, and mild soil. Overall, an attractive copy of Capote's best known work.

The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torch-bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.
