Sometimes when writing blog posts, I plug keywords into the library’s catalog of our rare books. Since there’s a cold front coming through, I chose “cold.” While not surprising, one of the results was Truman Capote‘s important work that helped launch the true crime genre.
What is surprising is that our copy is a hard bound limited first edition. In fact, it’s 261 of 500 and signed by Capote.
It’s always fun to find extraordinary little gems hidden in our rare books collection.
