Description:

First edition, with date lacking on title page as called for. Inscribed in 1975 by Ben Wasson to the editor of The Faulkner Newsletter and a noted Faulkner collector. First written in 1926-27, Sartoris (initially called "Flags in the Dust") met a discouraging response from New York publishers. Faulkner thus engaged his Oxford friend Ben Wasson, then in New York, to act as the book's agent. Wasson found a publisher willing to take the novel, provided someone besides Faulkner extensively edit it. Wasson undertook the job himself, cutting nearly a quarter of the text. Harcourt, Brace duly published it in 1929. This copy's inscription reads, " To Bill B. from Ben W. Long may your collection wave. B. [Oxford?] 1975." Light silverfishing and light cup ring to binding; discoloration to gutter at title page. Otherwise a sound copy with an exceptionally fresh interior. Bookseller Inventory #
