A Fable - Faulkner, William - 1954. 
New York: Random House, 1954 First edition, first printing. Publisher's original burgundy cloth, with three cross illustrations stamped in blind and black to the front board, light pink and metallic silver lettering to the spine; original dust jacket designed by Riki Levinson. A fine copy; unclipped dust jacket, with only a minor nick to the front panel, else bright and clean. Overall, a near fine and very handsome copy. Petersen A37.2b Written over the course of nine years from December 1944 through November 1953, A Fable is, as Random House proclaims, "the crowning achievement of William Faulkner's distinguished career." Partly based on the author's experience as a pilot during World War I, the plot is set in the trenches of France. The story takes place over the course of seven days and examines the internal conflicts each man must go through, a point which is emphasized by the parallels Faulkner draws between Corporal Stephan's struggles and the week-long Passion of Jesus Christ before his crucifixion. A Fable won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
