NY: Random House. (1957). The second book in Faulkner's Snopes Trilogy, this being the first issue, in red cloth with threaded gray endpapers, in the second issue dust jacket without the "5/57" on the front flap. Signed in full by Faulkner on the title page and additionally inscribed by the author: "For Miss Adeliade [sic] & Chuck Miller/ With love/ Bill Faulkner" on the half title. Very near fine, with a tiny tear at the crown, in a near fine dust jacket with mild foxing at the flap folds and on the verso. A very attractive copy of his first novel after winning the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and the National Book Award in 1955 for A Fable. Faulkner signatures or inscriptions in trade editions are notoriously uncommon: although he did a number of signed limited editions, Faulkner was famously prickly about being asked to sign books, and often declined to do so. Hardcover. Near Fine. (Inventory #: 032699)
