Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "To Ruth Ford from Bill Faulkner (See what you can do with this) Oxford 9 October 1959". Ford was an actress and model who had been a long-time family friend of Faulkner. She said of him, "one of the nicest people in Hollywood is William Faulkner, who I had known in Mississippi when I was getting my Masters Degree in Philosophy at the University there." After her acting career was over, she was well known for the literary and artistic salon she created at her Dakota Building apartment in New York, frequented by Faulkner, Cecil Beaton, Truman Capote, Stephen Sondheim, Andy Warhol, and others. Her brother was the bohemian surrealist Charles Henri Ford.
