Description:
New York: Random House, 1938. First edition. Near Fine/Very Good +. A Near Fine copy of the book on account of some toning to the spine and a bit of darkening to front and rear gutters from publisher's glue. In an unclipped VG+ jacket retaining pleasing colors to the front and rear panels, but with some toning to spine and chipping and small losses to spine ends. Personal responsibility and the fall of Old Southern gentility take center stage in Faulkner's The Unvanquished. Set in Mississippi and spanning the Civil War and Reconstruction, the story follows the Sartoris family and their attempt to maintain a sense of identity as the nation changes. "Having chosen warfare as the exciting backdrop for The Unvanquished, Faulkner writes of it well. By the time of the fall of Vicksburg, when the novel begins, the Confederate defeats at Shiloh and Corinth had opened northern Mississippi to the Federal armies...the border region of north Mississippi was overrun by both the Union and Confederate armies but… Read more

Description:
New York: Payson and Clark, 1928. First edition. Fine/Very Good +. A Fine copy of the book in Very Good+ jacket. Dust jacket has toning to spine and chips and tears to crown. Top edge of jacket has creases on front and back. Discoloration affecting half of page on half-title and last blank, likely from some reaction between publisher's glue and dust jacket. Sparse foxing throughout. A collection of works, both published and unpublished, in prose and in poetry, purportedly about America, Americans, and Americanness. Useful Knowledge displays Stein's complex thought through sentences that make sense and make no sense, somehow at the same time: "On the other side as another side this is the other side." Fine in Very Good + dust jacket.
