1 Capote, Truman Other Voices Other Rooms
New York Random House 1948 First Edition, First Printing Cloth 
Very Good in a Good dustjacket. Bound in full beige cloth. The spine is stamped in red and green; the front board in green. Octavo. Fading green topstain. 231pps. Stated First Printing. There is a slight, almost indiscernible lean to the spine, the pastedowns have touches of tanning and the bottom corner of the front free endpage has been clipped off. Otherwise quite clean, bright, and soundly bound. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has chipping along the top edge and at the extremities; the front flap is mostly detached but kept securely in place by the mylar sleeve. The original price (2.75) is intact. A nice, clean copy in a flawed dustjacket of the author's first book.

"...Mr. Capote's first novel, like his shorter tales, expresses a delicate and highly personal fusion of the familiar, the everyday, the 'realistic,' with the strange, the perilous, and even the ghostly. On the surface, it is the narrative of a young boy's experiences in a desolate Southern rural community during one long and lowering summer, as he moves painfully and at times terrifyingly into emotional maturity. Below and beyond the surface, 'Other Voices, Other Rooms' is rich in poetic meanings and metaphorical intimations; it abounds in the imagery of solitude, doubt, and fear, of discovery and love. It is a work of no mere precocious talent but of assured creative mastery; it is one of the leading incidents in the emergence of a new mode in American fiction."

2 Capote, Truman The Thanksgiving Visitor
New York Random House 1967 First Edition, First Printing 
Near Fine in a Very Good+ slipcase. Beige boards quarterbound in red cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Blue-green endpapers. 63pps. There is mild rubbing to the board-edges, otherwise clean, tight, and bright. The text is immaculate; no previous ownership markings. The slipcase -- with a pastedown label showing the author as a child with Miss Sook Faulk -- has some faint sunfading and rubbing; it is structurally sound with no cracks or chips. A very nice copy of this uncommon issue.

"...Buddy and his closest friend, his eccentric, elderly cousin, Miss Sook -- the memorable characters from Capote's 'A Christmas Memory' -- love preparing their old country house for Thanksgiving. But there's trouble in the air. Odd Henderson, a scrawny, freckled, red-headed bully makes Buddy the target of his relentless torment. But Miss Sook only counsels patience and understanding, 'He can't help acting ugly; he doesn't know any different,' she says. Filled with emotions that are universal to both young readers and adults, this poignant story brings to life what we all should cherish and be thankful for -- the gifts of friendship and love..."
