A superb copy of a novel that contrasts stark tragedy with hopeful perseverance in the face of mortality; featuring some of Faulkner's most memorable characters: guileless, dauntless Lena Grove, in search of the father of her unborn child; Reverend Gail Hightower, a lonely outcast haunted by visions of Confederate glory; as well as Joe Christmas, a desperate, enigmatic drifter consumed by his mixed ancestry.

First edition, first issue with 'Jefferson' for 'Mottstown' on p340, line 1; 8vo; publisher's cloth printed in blue and orange, top edge coloured orange, pictorial dust-jacket designed by Arthur Hawkins, spine panel slightly faded, slight wear to extremities; unobtrusive bookseller's label to rear pastedown, otherwise a fine copy.
