First Edition Faulkner, in First Issue Black Cloth Binding and First State Dust Jacket

    William Faulkner. Go Down Moses and other Stories. New York: Random House, [1942].

    First edition, first issue binding and first state dust jacket. Octavo. [viii], 383 pages.

    Publisher's black cloth, lettered and ruled in gilt and red. Top edges stained red. Original illustrated dust jacket with "and other stories" on the front panel. Book leans very slightly forward, light scuffing and soiling to cloth, spine a bit faded, price-clipped jacket has moderate wear and chipping around the edges, with more significant chips to the top of the spine affecting a couple of letters in the title. Still, altogether a very good copy with the text bright and clean.

    A collection of seven stories, with six having appeared elsewhere and one new to print. The "and other stories" was removed from the title in later printings, as the stories were intended to be read together as a novel.
