Book Description 1931. New York: Random House, 1931. Original marbled red paper-covered boards with front cover label. First Edition, this being copy #265 of the 400 numbered copies SIGNED by Faulkner. A man goes up into the mountains of Arizona to try to recover from lung disease; a woman leaves her husband and two young children to join him there, nursing him back to health; he takes off, leaving her there to waste away from the disease she has contracted from him; as she declines she receives money from someone she believes to be her lover, but it is in fact from her husband. Numerous magazines rejected this story; it was ultimately picked up by Bennett Cerf at Random House for this edition.~This is a near-fine copy, with some minor wear at the fragile spine; it was issued without a printed dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 13186

Book Description Random House, New York, 1931. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. This is an extraordinary copy of a very rare original short story by William Faulkner, perhaps a precursor of "Wild Palms," but rejected by seven publishers before this signed/limited edition was printed in only 400 copies, of which this is Number 113, signed by Faulkner on the limitation page. There were no later published copies of this story, possibly a precursor to "The Wild Palms." FIRST EDITION, stated on the copyright page. Limitation page states: "Of this edition four hundred copies were printed in the week of December 7 Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-One by the Harbor Press, New York, this copy being number 113 signed by the author William Faulkner at Random R H House." A very scarce signed/limited edition. Fine in the original reddish marble-paper-covered boards, with spine stitching cleaned by professional book restorer who also added new matching endsheets and head/tail bands, treated edges at book boards to preserve original marbled paper. Very slight rubbing along gutters and extremities. Original glassine cover provided by published whole and intact. Clean and tight throughout. Ink signature of original owner on ffep. Scarce copy of this fragile book. Seller Inventory # 161122
