The Marble Faun and A Green Bough

by Faulkner, William

Condition: See description

New York: Random House, 1965. Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in red and gilt. Deep red topstain. Octavo. 67pps. Stated First Random House Edition. An excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. There is a small closed tear at the bottom of one page midmost of the book; no other reading wear. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a 1/4" closed tear at the top of the front panel; there is, also, a small crease in either flap. No chips, soiling, (other) tears, or toning: the jacket is quite bright. The original price (4.75) is intact. A very nice, collector's-quality copy. In this scarce issue, two volumes of Faulkner's poetry are reproduced photographically from copies of the original editions. ".'The Marble Faun' was issued on December 15, 1924, by The Four Seas Company (Boston), with an introduction by Phil Stone. Since there was only one printing, it has been for a long time an extremely rare book. 'A Green Bough' was published on April 20, 1933, by Harrison Smith and Robert Haas (New York). There was a limited signed edition of 360 copies, as well as the regular trade edition."
