First edition of Knight’s Gambit by William Faulkner.

Octavo, [6], 246pp. Red cloth, title stamped in gilt over black on spine. Top edge dyed black. No additional printings listed on copyright page. Slight lean to text block, a touch of wear to corners, faint transference to front endpapers, a near fine example. Previous owner’s name in ink on front endpaper. In the publisher’s first state dust jacket, $2.75 retail price on front flap, light wear along edges, shelf wear, faint soiling to rear panel. A bright example.

William Faulkner (1897-1962) was a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author, recognized for A Fable in 1955 and The Reivers in 1963. The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, and Light in August were recognized by The Modern Library on their 1998 list of 100 Best English-language Novels of the 20th Century. Faulkner primarily set his stories in the American South, many of which took place in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County.
