One critic has said of this American classic, "In the twentieth century, To Kill a Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism."

"Nelle" Harper Lee (1926- ) worked with publisher J. B. Lippincott & Co. to complete her loosely autobiographical novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, during the summer of 1959. The novel's highly ethical country lawyer, Atticus Finch, was modeled on Lee's father, an attorney. His character has epitomized moral heroism and integrity for many readers.

The plot turns on an event that occurred near Harper Lee's hometown Monroeville, Alabama, in 1936, when she was 10 years old, like the character Scout.

Originally published on July 11, 1960, the novel became an immediate bestseller. It earned critical acclaim and won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1961. It remains a bestseller with more than 40 million copies in print. In 1999, a poll conducted by the Library Journal voted it the "Best Novel of the Century." Harper Lee was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her contribution to literature in 2007.

This special gift edition in its original shrinkwrap has been enclosed in a slipcase with the original book jacket design and a ribbon marker. No previous owner or remainder marks.
