William Faulkner - The Sound and the Fury

Random House, 1956 (first published in 1929). Hardcover. 8vo. Second edition, first printing. Blue cloth binding. 401 pp. Blue topstain. Ex-library copy in poor condition. Substantial rubbing, general wear to edges of boards, textblock fore-edge. Library stamp, fuzzy shadow of now-removed card pocket on front free endpaper. Libary stamp on upper textblock edge. No library markings to text otherwise. Dust jacket is not pretty but remains intact and relatively bright under heavy duty archival mylar. There is some discoloration along outer periphery and chipping at the head of the jacket spine; in addition, the jacket flaps are glued to the pastedown papers of both covers. All in all an unprepossessing copy of a high point title in a surpisingly scarce second edition.
