William Faulkner first edition thus "As I Lay Dying"  cloth bound hardcover
Published in 1967 by the Modern Library division of Random House.
First edition in original wrapper, original publishers price $2.45
8vo, blue cloth wrapped boards, Rockwell Kent designed paste downs and free end papers, embossed front cover with the ML logo, 250 pages.
This is a "very good plus" vintage hardcover with a tight binding and strong hinges. The text block closes tightly and is square. Board corners are not bumped, the spine head and tail being moderately bumped. A bit of wear on the board corner and spine edges but not worn through. No loose, torn or folded pages, no writing. Stated first edition on verso.
The original dust jacket still has original price inside the front flap. Some mild edge wear on all side, one small closed tear at the front cover spine corner. Back flap lower corner is folded over at the very tip. Some hint of tanning to white background along edges and a little surface rubbing at the spine.
Overall, a really pleasing dust wrapper!
This is an awesome gift for the Faulkner fan in your tribe - perhaps that's you.
Could be a nice "upgrade" to your existing copy.
Will ship carefully packaged and insured.
