Yoknapatawpha Pr, 1975-08-01. Hardcover. Good. John Faulkner's wife, Lucille "Dolly" Ramey Faulkner, has signed this copy underneath the author's name on title page--perhaps this was her private copy. Dust jacket quite rubbed and chipped. Rip at front flap of approximately one inch. Page edges soiled. Areas of the front edge of page block are rough, seemingly from light bug predation. Boards are lightly warped. Boards have some light soiling. Book has a slant. Corners bumped. Text free from marks, highlighting and dogears. A solid, but not gorgeous, copy of this rare classic.
