First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Faulkner on the front free endpaper, “To a little ‘big girl’ in the south from Phoebe Omlie [signed in her own hand] and William Faulkner. Miss Stella Aiken. Oxford, Miss, April 29, 1935”. Phoebe Omlie was a female aviation pioneer; her husband Vernon taught Faulkner to fly in 1933, and the pair went barnstorming and stunt flying in the Oxford vicinity. The characters of Roger and Laverne Shumann in this novel were modelled on the Omlies. A superb inscription.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt on black ground, top edge dyed black. With the dust jacket. Housed in a blue cloth folding case. Gilt titles chipped, lightly rubbed at extremities, mark to edge of lower board. A very good copy in the rubbed and chipped jacket.
