Notes

First edition, first printing, limited issue. Number 280 of 300 copies specially bound and signed by the author on the limitation leaf. One of the hardest of all Faulkner's limited editions to find in collector's condition. This copy has the bookplate of collector Charles Crooke Auchincloss (1881-1960), a wealthy New York lawyer and stockbroker who had studied at Yale and Harvard. His mansion at 120 East 70th Street had a Georgian library to house his rare book collection, and he was a member of the Grolier Club.
