First edition of the Grisham’s first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed and dated by John Grisham on the half-title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. Jacket design by Susanne DeMarco.

A Time To Kill was rejected by numerous publishers before Wynwood Press eventually published it in a small first printing of only 5,000 copies. "Grisham's pleasure in relating the Byzantine complexities of Clanton politics is contagious and he tells a good story...An enjoyable book" (Library Journal).
