New York: Random House, 1966. First Edition. The deluxe edition, copy #340 of 600 numbered copies signed by Capote. Above his signature, Capote has written "For Robert Wilson from" on the limitation page. This is an interesting copy, since Bob Wilson in his influential Modern Book Collecting (1980) chose Capote's A CHRISTMAS MEMORY as "One of the Fifty Most Important Books of American Literature Since the End of World War II". He wrote "It is to my mind the finest piece of evocative writing produced in America since World War Two". Wilson was the proprietor of The Phoenix Bookshop in Greenwich Village from 1962 to 1988. 8vo green cloth. Very fine in fine acetate dj and fine publisher's slipcase box.
