Nathan Leopold Signed Book

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+


The partner of Richard Loeb, Leopold (1904-1971) was one half of the notorious ‘thrill-killing’ couple whose trial for the kidnapping and murder of Chicago fourteen-year-old Bobby Franks was one of the most sensational news events of the 1920s. Signed book: Life Plus 99 Years. First edition. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1958. Hardcover with dust jacket, 6.5 x 9.5, 381 pages. Signed on the half-title page in fountain pen, "Nathan F. Leopold, Jr., Mar. 13, 1958." Affixed to the first free end page is the personal bookplate of Leopold's older brother, Foreman M. Lebold, who, like some other family members, changed his surname to disassociate himself from the notoriety of the crime and subsequent trial. In fine condition. A fantastic association copy.
