Indeed. According to Hackett and Burke's "Eighty Years Of Best Sellers", a list which combines hardcover and paperback sales in the US from 1895 thru 1973, "I, The Jury" registered 6,096,700 sales, which places it slightly ahead of "The Great Gatsby" and "Catcher In The Rye" but well behind the likes of "Love Story,"
"Valley Of The Dolls," and "Jaws" (all over 9,000,000).

****************** Just slightly ahead of The Great Gatsby? It was my understanding that the book that I, The Jury beat out as all-time bestselling novel was Mitchell's Gone With the Wind.
