Go Down, Moses and Other Stories

Faulkner, William

New York

Random House



(8vo) original rose half cloth and boards, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. Custom cloth case. No. 92 off 100 copies. First Edition.

Signed by Faulkner at the limitation statement, as issued. This is the smallest limitation of any of Faulkner's limited, signed editions and is among his rarest books. Thomas Verich, curator of the Faulkner Collection at the University of Mississippi, located fewer than 50 copies in his 1991 census. Contains the first book appearance of Faulkner's seminal story, "The Bear." Though sections of the book had originally been published as separate stories, Faulkner actually conceived of it as a novel and in all subsequent printings "and Other Stories" has been removed from the title. Petersen A23.2a.; Thomas M. Verich "Go Down, Moses and Other Stories: A Preliminary Census of the Limited, Signed Edition of 100 Numbered Copies." Mississippi Quarterly 44.3 (Summer 1991): pages 337-45.
