Breakfast At Tiffany's in Esquire Magazine November, 1958

Softcover, Chicago: Esquire, 1958. Very Good+. November, 1958 issue of Esquire. It includes the true first printing of the entire text of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Breakfast at Tiffany's was first purchased by Harper's Bazaar for $2,000 and intended for publication in their July, 1958 issue. The Hearst Coporation, publisher's of Harper's Bazaar, ended up refusing to actually publish the story because they were unformfortable with its content. Capote then sold it to Esquire for $3,000 and the story was duly published in the November, 1958 issue of Esquire. This is the true first printing and came out before the book. This is the entire issue, except for pages 5 and 6, which included the table of contents and were torn out by a previous, presumably brain-dead, owner. The entire text of Breakfast at Tiffany's is present, it begins on page 134 and runs until page 162. I graded the magazine's condition as Very Good+, it would have been Near Fine if pages 5 and 6 were not torn out. All text, photographs, illustrations, and advertisements are clean and bright with no previous owner marks. Magazine protected in plastic. Other content in this issue includes "The Crisis of Masculinity" by Arthur Schlesinger Jr, "A New God for the Space Age" by Ben Hecht, "Washington's Most Powerful Reporter" by Joe Kraft, and an article on cognac. This Esquire is an oversize magazine, international shipping will require extra charges because it is too big to fit in the flat rate enevelope. Please contact me prior to ordering if you require international shipping. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 199 pages. [Item #75218]
