$50.00

By the time of the publication of A Fable in 1954, William Faulkner had set himself apart with a critically and commercially successful literary career. His earlier novels had gained traction with modern readership, and his contemporaries praised his innovative genius. He had won the Nobel Prize for Literature several years earlier, yet it wasn’t until A Fable that he received two of the most prestigious American literary prizes–the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award–making A Fable one of his most prestigious publications. Set in France during WWI, the novel showcases irony, magic, and brutality. It is unique among Faulkner titles. He notoriously struggled to complete the work, hoping it would become his best publication ever. This limited edition is finely illustrated by Robert J. Lee whose full-page paintings adorn the text perfectly.

This limited edition is in especially fine condition. In the original brown leather boards, elaborately gilt stamped. Raised bands. Gilt spine label. Text block fine. Gilt edges. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in.

An especially fine collector’s copy of A Fable by William Faulkner.
