New York: Simon and Schuster, 1955. First U.S edition. Hardcover. A remarkable memoir and inspiring story about a man born with severe cerebral palsey who was eventually able to paint and write thru the use of his left foot. The basis for the movie with Daniel Day Lewis. An about near fine copy with a tiny stain to the top corner of the foredge and the usual browning to the pages in a near fine dust jacket with some very minor edge wear and a small spot to the spine. A pleasing copy despite the small flaws.
