First edition, first printing of The Town by William Faulkner, in first state dust jacket.
Octavo, [viii], 371pp. Maroon cloth, title stamped in gold on spine and front cover. Stated “first printing” on copyright page. Includes the repeated line on page 327. Blemish to endpapers from tape used to secure dust jacket cover. A clean copy, appears unread. In publisher’s first state dust jacket, $3.95 on front flap and 5/57 at bottom, bright illustrations, small mark on rear flap, a fine example.
One of the best examples of Faulkner’s The Town that we’ve ever encounter.
