About this Item: New York: Random House, 1942, 1942. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom black cloth solander box. An exceptional copy in the bright jacket, with tiny chip to upper tip of rear panel expertly repaired. First trade edition, first printing. From the library of Stephen Longstreet (19072002), with his signature to the front pastedown. Longstreet, an author and screenwriter who wrote over 100 novels, was also renowned as an artist, publishing five books on jazz illustrated with his own drawings and watercolours; his artwork includes portraits of jazz artists such as Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington. Longstreet first met Faulkner in 1937 at Random House, just before Longstreet's first novel was commissioned. The two men became drinking companions, and Faulkner calmed Longstreet's "first writer shakes", saying "'Yo' just keep the words coming. No trick to it all if the writing is in yo'. Nothing will come if yo' haven't got the stuff.'" Later, in 1944, Longstreet persuaded Warner Bros to hire Faulkner as a screenwriter when he was in tightened financial straits. To Longstreet's dismay, Faulkner's first assignment was his own novel Stallion Road. Faulkner's response to Longstreet was: "'I don't think much of yo' young writers, but they are paying me for this, so I'll go through it'". The resulting script was "'a magnificent thing utterly impossible to be made into a trite movie of the period'", and Longstreet told Faulkner that, though the script would have to be rejected, he liked it for "its quivering alertness". He was touched to find that, although not given to signing books, the next day Faulkner had signed the six copies of his works that Longstreet then kept in the office. "'Some ardent but dishonest Faulkner collector'" stole four of the books the following day; Longstreet retained The Wild Palms, and gave away the other remaining book to another writer.

About this Item: Random House, New York, 1942. Hardcover. First edition. Octavo. three-quarter brick red cloth over salmon colored, textured paper boards, top edge gilt. One of 100 copies, signed by the author. Published May 11, 1942, by Random House, dedicated "To Mammy Caroline Barr, Mississippi, [1840-1940]: Who was born in slavery and who gave to my family a fidelity without stint or calculation of recompense and to my childhood an immeasurable devotion and love." One of Faulkner's masterpieces, Go Down, Moses is an episodic novel consisting of short stories, most of which were published elsewhere. A difficult novel at times, the novel tells the story of the McCaslin family, beginning with the family patriarch Lucius Quintus Carothers McCaslin, and his many descendants, both black and white. It is a noteworthy exploration of race, particularly as it is compounded with miscegenation, and is concerned also with the vanishing wilderness. Faulkner intended the stories as a novel and the words "and Other Stories" were dropped from the trade edition. This is the smallest limitation of any of Faulkner's books and as such drastically limits the number of complete collections of his works. [Petersen, Clark. Each In Its Ordered Place: A Faulkner Collector's Notebook A.23.2a]. Two tiny stains on foredge, otherwise an immaculate copy in original tissue wrapper, housed in a custom made slipcase. One of 100 copies, signed by the author. Seller Inventory # 22705
