Author / Artist:

Faulkner, William


New York: Random House. 1948


First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's black cloth with titles in gilt and blue to the upper board and spine, in the first issue and proof state dustwrappers. A beautiful fine copy, the binding clean and square, the contents without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with two original dustwrappers. The standard first issue dustwrapper is in exceptionally fine and unworn condition having been protected by the oversized proof state wrapper which is now a little rubbed and nicked to the extremities. A stunning copy, rare in signed state.




Signed by the author in blue ink on the title page. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone and the basis for the 1949 Clarence Brown directed film.
