Item #242 Galley Proofs of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Truman Capote.

Galley Proofs of Breakfast at Tiffany’s

New York: Haddon Craftsman, 1958. First Edition. 2 vols. The publisher’s own master set of long galley proofs of the 1st edition (Haddon Craftsman), with some author directed changes, and many editorial corrections. Another set trimmed to page proofs is included. Smudges to first and last few leaves (production use) but both sets are near fine. Both are complete. Each is unique. The transit stage between manuscript and book, and the first setting in type of an immortal shard of Western literature, urging the reader to always be a little kinder than necessary, tackling the struggle between a need for stability and a desire for freedom, and featuring an investment in friendship more simply and truly portrayed than if it had really happened. Near fine. Item #242
