New York: Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith,, 1931. Octavo. Original grey cloth backed burgundy boards, titles to spine in red, top edge dyed black. With the dust jacket. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Pale spot to tail of spine. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with dampstain to the upper panel and a chip from the tail of the spine and the upper panel affecting the author's name. Second printing. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, "To Jimmy Stone, William Faulkner, Las Angeles, Cal, 16 April, 1936". Jimmy Stone was the brother of Phil Stone, one of Faulkner's early mentors who helped him type and submit work to literary magazines. Jimmy was extravagant and often in financial trouble from which his mother rescued him; Phil told the critic Carvel Collins that he was one of the prototypes for the character Jason Compson in The Sound and the Fury. An excellent association.
