The Unvanquished


Condition: See description

New York: Random House, 1938. First Edition. Review copy with the publisher’s printed and dated notice and photograph of the author laid in. The notice gives publisher, price and date of publication (February 15, 1938) as well as a description of the book. “...Straight reading from Faulkner - in one of the finest books he has yet written. It covers the later days of the Civil War, when the Yankees destroyed the plantation but not the spirit of the indomitable Sartoris family in Mississippi. Many of the chapters appeared originally in magazines, but Faulkner has largely rewritten them, and this record of the valiant Sartorises is now a continuous narrative, packed with war, romance, humor, and above all, courage. Illustrations by Edward Shenton....” The photograph of Faulkner is one of the classic 1930s images of the man and in the white margin beneath reads: “WILLIAM FAULKNER - One of America’s top ranking authors, whose new book, THE UNVANQUISHED, deals with the Civil War (Random House).” The book is a fine tight copy in a lightly used dust jacket with a two inch tear, a faint bit of dust soiling at spine, and a couple of tiny nicks.
