About this Item: Boston: The Four Seas Company, 1924, 1924. First Edition of the author's first book. Original paper covered boards with spine and cover labels; about fine in the rare dust jacket with tiny chips at the extremities and only very minor wear; in a custom cloth slipcase. Especially scarce in this condition, this fragile volume's spine is often either damaged or entirely perished. Inscribed at publication on the title page by the author, 'William Faulkner/ 24 December 1924.' The dedication copy, inscribed to his parents, was presented at Christmas. While the Four Seas Company published many well-known literary authors, such as Williams, Stein and Aiken, it was largely a vanity publishing house, where authors were expected to advance the costs of publication. Faulkner's first attempt to do so in 1923 was a failure, but, with the help of his friend Phil Stone, he managed to provide the firm with $400.00 the following year to print 500 copies, an optimistic number. Fewer than 100 copies were probably sold, and most of the printing was remaindered, much of that likely pulped. All books described as first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted.

About this Item: Boston: The Four Seas Company, 1924, 1924. Octavo. Original mottled green boards, white paper title labels to front board and spine printed in green. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Front hinge starting, small production flaw to rear hinge, small tear to the top of the front joint of the jacket, but a stunning copy of a famously vulnerable publication. First edition, sole printing, presentation copy of Faulkner's first book. This copy has been inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Dink Cearley from Bill Faulkner" and also signed and dated 31 December 1924 on the title page. C. L. ("Dink") Cearley was in 1924 the 19-year-old son of Abb W. Cearley (69 years old, married at age 36) and Mollie Cearley. Abb was the jailor in Oxford, Mississippi, and would probably have been elected to that position. Abb and Mollie were both born in Mississippi, as were all four of their parents. The Cearley family (including several siblings) lived on the premises of the jail. In 1931 there is a record of a minor ($2) payment to a Mr Woodward "in the Dink Cearley Case" and there are occasional references to Cearley Service Station, but otherwise the family seems to have lived quietly. The fact that Faulkner uses the familiar form of his own forename suggests that he was on easy terms with the younger Dink. Faulkner employed the unusual forename for the character Dink Quistenberry in The Town, who marries into the Snopes family and runs the Jefferson (formerly Snopes) Hotel. The Marble Faun is the author's first book, of which only 500 of the projected 1,000 copies were printed and some 300 of those were later pulped. The official publication date was, after some delay, fixed as 15 December 1924 and the earliest dated presentation copies were signed on the 19th. With thanks to John Ward, professor in the English department at Quinnipiac University, Hamden, CT, for information about the recipient. Seller Inventory # 118733

About this Item: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, New York, 1929. First edition of the Faulkner's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth, black and white patterned paper boards. Fine in a fine first-issue dust jacket with the iconic design by Kathe Kollwitz on the front panel and a price of $3.00 for the book Humanity Uprooted on the rear panel, with just a touch of rubbing to the spine. Petersen A6.2a. Brucolli & Clark I:121. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The spine of this title is prone to fading, this example exhibits none. One of the nicest examples extant. Although The Sound and The Fury is now considered one of top one hundred novels of the 20th century, it actually wasn't initially received well upon publication. This was mostly due to the fact that at the time Faulkner wasn't well-known as a novelist, although this was his fourth published work. Because he had not had much commercial success with his first few novels, it is believed that the publisher limited the initial printing run to 1,789 copies. It wasn't until his novel Sanctuary was published in 1931 that he started being really noticed as a writer and more people started giving The Sound and The Fury more serious attention. The title of the book comes from the famous soliloquy of act 5, scene 5 of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Faulkner literally takes Shakespeare's words and writes a "tale told by an idiot,". in this case from the point of view of the members of the Compson family, who are former Mississippi aristocrats who fall into financial trouble and over a 30 year period, many of whom die tragically in one way or another. Or as Shakespeare put it. "the way to dusty death". Faulkner used a stream of consciousness method conceived by other novelists such as James Joyce and Virginia Wolf. Although this narrative style and lack of regard for sentence structure can often alienate new readers, it is considered a masterpiece by literary critics and scholars and played a large role in Faulkner's receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1949.

About this Item: Boston Four Seas Company, 1924. First edition. Original olive marbled paper covered boards, with printed paper labels on upper cover and spine, in the original dustwrapper, which is printed in green. A couple of millimetres of fraying to the top of the spine but a very good copy indeed in a near fine dustwrapper, which is clean and complete with just a little fraying and a couple of short closed tears to the spine, and some minor marks. Overall an extremely well preserved copy of a rare and fragile book. The author's very rare first book, printed in an edition of about 500 copies, of which it is estimated barely 100 now exist. A collection of verse in a pastoral cycle, of which Phil Stone prophetically said in his preface, "these are primarily the poems of youth and a simple heart. It is seldom that much can be truthfully said for a first book beyond that it shows promise. And I think these poems show promise.". Seller Inventory # 27866

About this Item: New York: Harcourt Brace, 1929, 1929. Octavo. Original black cloth. With the Arthur Hawkins dust jacket. In a quarter morocco slipcase. Provenance: Edith M. Brown (presentation inscription, signature on front free endpaper, dated 1929 at foot); Louis Daniel Brodsky, American poet and Faulkner scholar (then deaccessioned from the Brodsky-Faulkner collection at Southeast Missouri State University); Roger Rechler (his sale, Christie's New York, 11 October 2002, lot 77).

Brown beneath the inscription; additionally signed by Faulkner on the title, "William Faulkner 28 May 1929." Brown was one of three children of Calvin S. Brown, Faulkner's romance language professor at "Ole Miss" in the late teens. According to Frederick Karl, Brown was perhaps the most distinguished faculty member at the university, a Renaissance man who taught languages, archaeology, and geology, and collected pestles, mortars, and sleigh bells. He awarded Faulkner with a prize for a poem at the end of school (See Karl, William Faulkner, 1989, pp. 140, 153). Presentation copies of Sartoris are extremely rare. Massey 289; Peterson A5.1.

About this Item: Random House [1942], 1942. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo. This copy is inscribed by Faulkner on the front free endpaper and signed by him on the title page as was his custom. "To A. I. Bezzerides. Many happy returns. Bill Faulkner. 9 Aug. 1945." Faulkner and Bezzerides met in Hollywood at about the time "Go Down, Moses" was published, though this Faulkner novel was not among those of his books to make it to the screen. The two were part of the Warner Bros. stable of screenwriters and collaborated on more than a few movie scripts, some of which were filmed, some not. Faulkner, who was struggling financially to get by, lived with Bezzerides and his family during this period and was driven to the studio during the week by the younger man. When Faulkner periodically became incapacitated by his alcoholic binges, Bezzerides saw to it that he received medical intervention. This copy may have been inscribed to his by-then good friend when Bezzerides visited Faulkner in Mississippi. All this is documented in Faulkner biographies. Bezzerides was himself a published author, two of whose novels were made into Warner Bros. film noirs -- "The Long Haul" and "Thieves Highway." Provenance: The A.I. Bezzerides estate. Very good in a very good dust jacket that is price-clipped. An association copy of the first rank. Housed in a custom-made quarter morocco clamshell box. Signed by Author(s).

About this Item: Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith, New York, 1929. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good+. First Edition. Original cloth, spine still bright white. Front hinge discretely mended. Original dust jacket, with its iconic design by Kathe Kollwitz, is present and fully intact; some professional restoration to a patch of the rear panel lettering. The tragic tale of the Compson family, certainly counted as a masterpiece of the Southern Gothic tradition, and an essential development in the stream-of-consciousness narrative technique. Faulkner's fourth novel refuses any simple synopsis or definition -- and likewise its attempted adaptation to the screen. Though Faulkner enjoyed success writing for Hollywood, the attempt by Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank bore little resemblance to the original tour de force. Seller Inventory # D1094

About this Item: New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, [1929]. 8vo., [iv], 401 pp. Original quarter white cloth, and black and white patterned paper boards, backstrip lettered in black, decorative endpapers that match the covers, original pictorial dust-jacket, fore-edge uncut. Dust-jacket has a few minor chips along the edges, a very good copy. First edition, first printing, first issue dust-jacket with "Humanity Uprooted" priced at $3.00. The Sound and the Fury was Faulkner's fourth novel, considered by many to be his masterpiece, and a turning point in his work. Here he firmly plants himself, however unintentionally, in the Southern Renaissance and Modernist movements of the 20th century, proving himself to be an uncompromising and distinct voice. Faulkner referred to heroine Caddy Compson as "the daughter of his mind," and regarded this work with the deepest of tenderness. This is the quintessential novel by Faulkner, and the crown jewel of any collection. Seller Inventory # 108661
