The Fable, Faulkner, William
1 Faulkner, William The Fable
New York Random House 1954 First Printing Cloth Fine Very Good 
First Printing. A superb fine unmarked copy in an unclipped ($4.75) and very good plus dustjacket. This copy is tight, square and totally clean throughout the interior and exterior. An unblemished copy with only one small pen mark to the bottom text block (about 3/4" long and thin and wavy). The dustjacket is complete and unclipped--with one 1" closed end tear to the top middle of the front panel and one closed end tear along the upper spine--along with some chipping to the upper head of the spine and edgewear to the extremities. Still--an attractive dustjacket--not faded or soiled. "The Fable" has been called Faulkner's masterpiece--although many would disagree with that statement--in either case it won him both the Pulitzer and National Book Award. A scarce collectable copy of the first printing.

The Town, Faulkner, William
2 Faulkner, William The Town
New York Random House 1957 First Printing Cloth Near Fine Fine 
First Printing. From the recently auctioned collection of Donald S. Olson. A superb near fine copy in an unmarked and unblemished fine dustjacket. The second in the trilogy of the Snopes family. A tight and clean copy in red cloth with unfaded gilt lettering. There are only very small darkened areas at the bottom of the front pastedown and endpaper--where apparently a bit of newsprint had been left in this copy--only affects about a 1/2" by 2" area on the pastedown which is mirrored on the endpaper--same size (see digital photos)--otherwise this copy would be fine. The dustjacket is the best we have seen--only two specks at two of the corners--otherwise totally unblemished and with a solid grey topstain. Stated first printing on the copyright page. Lines 8 and 10 repeat on page 327. A great collectable copy of a first print Faulkner publication.

The Town, Faulkner, William
3 Faulkner, William The Town
New York Random House 1957 First Printing Cloth Fine Fine 
First Printing. From the Donald S. Olson collection of modern firsts. A superb and fine copy in a fine and unclipped dustjacket. As near as flawless a copy as you will fine--mild uniform age toning only--mostly some dustiness to the page edges and a tiny bit of fade towards the spine on the green topstain. The dustjacket is unclipped and complete--one small closed end tear to the rear panel with just some light age toning to the rear panel---or would also be fine. A spectacular copy. The second novel of the Snopes trilogy--which also included "The Hamlet" and "The Mansion".
