First edition of Mosquitoes by William Faulkner.

Octavo, 349pp. Black cloth, title printed on spine. The first issue, without “September, 1931” on copyright page. This copy previously read, wear to text block. Loss of print from spine, light rubbing to cloth, bumped edges. Some wear to hinges. A scarce example of one of Faulkner’s early works.

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. Mosquitoes was Faulkner’s second novel to be published. It was released on April 30, 1927, just over a year after the release of his first published novel, Soldiers’ Pay.
