Title: Spencer's Mountain Publication: New York: The Dial Press, 1961. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper with the slightest of rubbing.
Full-page Harper Lee blurb on the rear panel. Basis for the 1963 film featuring Henry Fonda and Maureen O'Hara.
It was also the final film for veteran actor/director Donald Crisp, who suffers an unexpectedly gruesome death as Grandpa Spencer. Hamner was not pleased that the setting of the film was changed from his native Virginia to Wyoming, but had his way a decade later when the book was adapted into the television series The Waltons.
The folksy and earnest program, narrated by Hamner, was a surprise ratings hit and remained a mainstay of quality television throughout the decade. A beautiful copy, and very uncommon signed. Today we offer a wide ranging inventory, from Modern First Editions to General Used Books to Rare Archival Collections.
