To Kill a Mockingbird

By Lee, Harper




To Kill a Mockingbird is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It was instantly successful and has become a classic of modern American literature. The plot and characters are loosely based on the author's observations of her family and neighbors, as well as on an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936, when she was 10 years old. The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with serious issues of rape and racial inequality.

First edition identification and notes

It is estimated that only 5,000 copies of To Kill a Mockingbird were published in the first printing, and two states of the book were printed. The order of the states are heavily disputed, with one of the states including a review by Shirley Ann Grau and Phyllis McGinley, and the other state featuring a review by Jonathan Daniels. There was not a printing statement in the first printing, but the price tag of $3.95 can be found on the lower corner of the front flap of the dust jacket. The first edition also has a quote from Truman Capote reading “Someone rare has written this very fine first novel: a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humor. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable.”--Truman Capote.


Other collectible or notable editions

Like Mockingbird, the cover art for the first edition of Watchman features a tree and the same signature type font. An unknown number of copies in the first UK edition were misprinted, with pages 252-277 missing text at the bottoms of the pages. As those copies are most likely quite rare, some have already skyrocketed in value.

To Kill a Mockingbird.

Lee, Harper

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1960. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1960. First edition of Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel which had an initial print run of 5,000 copies. Octavo, original green cloth backed brown boards, titles to spine in gilt. Signed by both Harper Lee and Truman Capote on the front free endpaper. Truman Capote's friendship with Harper Lee began in the summer of 1929 when the two became next door neighbors in Monroeville, Alabama; both were the age of five. They shared a love of reading and began collaborating when Lee was gifted a typewriter by her father as a child. Lee drew on their friendship as inspiration for the characters Lee and Scout in her masterpiece To Kill A Mockingbird; Capote based his tomboy character Idabel Thompkins in his first novel Other Voices, Other Rooms on Lee. They worked together on Capote's true crime novel, In Cold Blood; Lee acted as his 'assistant reasearchist' and edited the final draft of the book. Upon its publication in 1965, Capote failed to acknowledge Lee's contributions to the book, after which their relationship was never the same. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing and wear to the extremities. Jacket design by Shirley Smith. Housed in a custom full morocco clamshell box. Exceptionally rare, this is the first example we have seen signed by both Lee and Capote. To Kill a Mockingbird became an immediate bestseller and won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. The New Yorker declared it "skilled, unpretentious, and totally ingenious". It has gone on to become of the best-loved classics of all time and has been translated into more than forty languages selling more than forty million copies worldwide. Made into the Academy Award-winning film, directed by Robert Mulligan, starring Gregory Peck. It went on to win three Oscars: Best Actor for Gregory Peck, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Black-and-White, and Best Screenplay for Horton Foote. It was nominated for five more Oscars including Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Mary Badham, the actress who played Scout. In 1995, the film was listed in the National Film Registry. In 2003, the American Film Institute named Atticus Finch the greatest movie hero of the 20th century. In 2007 the film ranked twenty-fifth on the AFI's 10th anniversary list of the greatest American movies of all time. It was named the best novel of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal).

Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1960. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. A bright, attractive first edition of Lee's powerful novel.

The dust jacket also Near Fine with a few short tears at the top of the front panel and corresponding creases, and minor wear at the spine ends and corners.

Housed in a lovely custom slipcase with chemise. Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning coming of age novel, set in Maycomb, Alabama. An American classic, the novel took over two years for Lee to write- it was inspired by her own upbringing. (In fact, Lee's father was a lawyer who had defended black clients at the cost of his practice). Its production was not without difficulty and Lee once became so angry over the course of writing the novel that she tossed the manuscript out a window. The book has never been out of print, sold tens of millions of copies, and is required reading for the American adolescent. To Kill a Mockingbird was also adapted by Horton Foote into a 1963 film, directed by Robert Mulligan and starring Gregory Peck. The film would win three Oscars. "...skilled, unpretentious, and totally ingenious." (Contemporary New Yorker review). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

To Kill a Mockingbird

Lee, Harper

New York: HarperCollins, 1995 35th Anniversary Edition. First edition thus, later printing. Inscribed by Lee on the half-title: "To Mary Evelyn Hollaway / - best wishes, / Harper Lee". Publisher's black cloth over black boards, metallic copper lettering to the spine; in the original black pictorial dust jacket, with a tree illustration after the original first edition dust jacket art to the front panel. Book fine; price-clipped dust jacket, with some minor creasing to the extremities, else fine. A beautiful copy, inscribed by Lee at a book signing in Lee's hometown, Monroeville, Alabama. To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic Southern Gothic novel that tells the story of protagonist Scout Finch, who is coming of age in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Great Depression. Along with her brother Jem, Scout watches as her father Atticus defends an African-American man who has been falsely accused of raping a white woman during the height of Jim Crow Era racial inequality. Despite its controversial and emotional themes, To Kill a Mockingbird is beloved as a warm and entertaining bildungsroman; Harper Lee loosely based the plot on an event she witnessed as a child in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama and many of the characters were inspired by her friends, family and neighbors, infusing the novel with the author's sentimental memories of her childhood in the American South. To Kill a Mockingbird was adapted into a film of the same name in 1962 starring Gregory Peck and Mary Badham.. Inscribed by Author. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
