All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
NY, St. Martin's, (1988). The uncorrected proof copy of his highly acclaimed third novel, the first to have Hannibal Lecter as the central character, a figure that has become a cultural touchstone. Basis for the Jonathan Demme film with Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster, winner of five Academy Awards and one of the American Film Institute's top 100 Films of the Century. Upper outer corner crease to front cover; thus near fine in wrappers. The advance reading copy is fairly common; the proof is scarce. [#026554] $1,000
London, Heinemann, (2006). The first British edition. Signed by the author on the publisher's bookplate tipped to the half title, apparently the only way that copies of the U.K. edition were signed. Harris himself reportedly designed the color bookplate, which depicts a flying crane. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#026557] $250
NY, Newmarket Press, (2002). The shooting script by Ted Tally, based on Harris' second book, and the first to introduce the character Hannibal Lecter. The novel was first filmed as "Manhunter" in 1986 and then again in 2002 under the book's original title. Signed and with an introduction by Brett Ratner, the film's director. Fine in wrappers.
