About This Item

This is a very handsome copy of Truman Capote's famous book In Cold Blood, which was first serialized in the New Yorker, and was published in book form in 1965. This is a first book club edition from the International Collectors Library.

It is about the 1959 murders of the Clutter family, in Kansas, by a couple of drifters. Next to Vincent Bugliosi's book Helter Skelter, it is the #1 true-crime book in publishing history.

This copy is in pristine condition, except for a tiny bit of shelf wear at the top and bottom of the spine. It is red boards covered in leather, or leatherette--I can't quite tell but I think it's leather.

There is brilliant gilt on the cover and the spine. There is a bound-in red silk bookmark.

All of the the pages are clear and creamy white; there are no marks of any kind in it or on it.


Note: If you are outside of North America, the quoted shipping price is for surface mail without tracking. For other options, please contact me.


326 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Synopsis

In Cold Blood is a 1966 book by American author Truman Capote. The book details the brutal 1959 murders of Herbert Clutter, a wealthy farmer from Holcomb, Kansas, and his wife and two of their children. When Capote learned of the quadruple murder before the killers were captured, he decided to travel to Kansas and write about the crime.
