(New York: Random House, 1948), THE AUTHOR'S FIRST PUBLISHED BOOK, this being the first issue with the reclining Capote on the rear dust jacket panel, with the Marguerite Young blurb. It is written in the Southern Gothic style and is notable for its atmosphere of isolation and decadence. It is considered semi-autobiographical and was also noteworthy due to its risque content and even the erotically charged photograph of the author on the jacket. First Edition. 8vo, publisher's original cloth and in the original dustjacket. A fine copy, save for some very slight browning in the rear inner gutter, in near fine fresh d/j that is a bit rubbed at the top and base of the spine.
