Description:

First printing (not stated) INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR. 63 pages. Hardcover: H 23.75cm x L 15.75cm. Dust jacket rubbed, a few nicks and short tears at edges, top corner of front flap is price-clipped, some foxing to dj's blank verso; dj now presented in a mylar Brodart protector. Green cloth boards, cloth nicked at heel of front joint, vibrant gilt stamped lettering to front board and spine. Strong foxing spots to top edge; minor foxing to fore-edge and bottom edge with latter having green ink blot (publisher's remainder mark?) near spine. Author's five-line ink inscription upon the half-title page: "To the McBees - | With my very best wishes, | Dean Faulkner Wells | October, 1980 | New Orleans." Interior pages are otherwise clean. Binding is firm. A very good copy in a very good dust jacket. With illustrations by John F. Davis and an Introduction by Willie Morris. Dean Faulkner Wells, niece of Nobel Prize winner William Faulkner, recounts three ghost stories told in the 1940s by her famous uncle at his Oxford, Mississippi home Rowan Oak. Wells also authored her own children's story titled BELLE DUCK AT THE PEABODY. Yoknapatawpha Press often gave incorrect ISBNs on their first printings with corrections made to later printings and this first printing of THE GHOSTS OF ROWAN OAK is true to this careless pattern as 0916242071 is printed on dj front flap and on copyright page but the book's correct ISBN is 0916242072. {#C3} ISBN 0916242072.

Synopsis: Though the world knew William Faulkner as a Nobel prize-winning author, the children of Rowan Oak called him Pappy and knew him as the teller of tales that were tragic, entertaining and sometimes terrifying. In the 1940s at his home, Rowan Oak, in Oxford, Mississippi, Faulkner told ghost stories to the children in his family, one of whom, his niece and ward, Dean Faulkner Wells, has recounted three of them: the haunting and heartbreaking story of Judith, the chilling tale of the Werewolf, and the macabre story of the Hound.

About the Author: Dean Faulkner Wells is the only niece of William Faulkner. Her stories and articles have appeared in Parade Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, Southern Accents and The Paris Review. She is the author of Every Day by the Sun: A Memoir of the Faulkners of Mississippi, and editor of The Great American Writers' Cookbook.
