The novelist signs on this FDC honoring Mark Twain
First Day Cover Signed: "Truman Capote", 6½x3½. First Day Cover honoring Samuel Clements postmarked Hannibal, Missouri, February 13, 1940, 10-cent stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Cachet contains illustration of Tom Sawyer whitewashing his fence and is headed: "Samuel Langhorne Clements - Author." Slightly creased. Label on verso (no show through). Fine condition. Accompanied by unsigned photo of Capote, b/w, 7½x9¾. Fine condition. Flamboyant jet-setter Capote (1924-1985) wrote about fellow jet-setters in The Dogs Bark: Public People and Private Places (1973). He also introduced audiences to Holly Golightly in his novella, Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958, film 1961) and shared his childhood memories in short stories, such as A Christmas Memory (1966) and The Thanksgiving Visitor (1968). In stark contrast, Capote created a new genre, the "nonfiction" novel, with the mesmerizing In Cold Blood, the account of the murder of a Kansas farm family (1966, film 1967). Two items.
