    Description

    The Limited Edition, Signed by Faulkner

    William Faulkner. A Fable. New York: Random House, [1954].

    First edition, number 847 of 1,000 limited edition copies signed by Faulkner on the limitation page. Octavo. 437 pages.

    Publisher's blue cloth with blue and silver stamping. A crisp, sharp copy. Lacking original glassine dust jacket. Publisher's slipcase shows minor rubbing and soiling. A near fine copy.

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1955. An intellectually powerful anti-war statement which predates and anticipates similarly brilliant examples such as Heller's Catch-22 and Kubrick's film adaptation of Paths of Glory.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
