Capote, Truman (Author) & Perry, Frank and Eleanor (Film Directors). TRILOGY: A CHRISTMAS MEMORY/MIRIAM/AMONG THE PATHS TO EDEN. New York City, NY: MacMillan, 1969. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 276 pages. Fine/Fine.

Landmark collaborative book. One of Truman Capote's most rare titles. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. An unusual and fascinating artistic collaboration between the great writer and the husband-and-wife filmmaking team of Frank and Eleanor Perry. Beautifully produced using thick, pristine-white glossy stock paper. Three of Capote's finest short stories were produced as separate TV films and later, as a single feature-length film. The original texts of the short stories followed by the film scripts enable the reader to see the transformation from the written original to the finished film version. With a lengthy, engaging, and Illuminating Introduction by the Jesuit film scholar, John M. Culkin. A "must-have" title for Truman Capote completists. This title has been out-of-print for thirty years and is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A very scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white stills from the films. Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood" is widely regarded as one of the greatest books of the 20th century. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER TRUMAN CAPOTE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $50.00
