New York: Modern Library, (1959). Modern Library Giant, first edition thus. INSCRIBED on the front endpaper "To The Maracay Book Club / with gratitude and best wishes / William Faulkner / Caracas / 20 April 1961" and signed on the title page "William Faulkner / Maracay / 10 April 1961." During a State Department-sponsored trip to Venezuela in April 1961, Faulkner visited a book club in Maracay founded in his honor by fellow Mississippian, Vivian Ray. According to Ray's son (from whom the book was purchased), Mr. Faulkner stayed with William and Victoria Fielden in Caracas who were responsible for arranging this "out of protocol" event. Old tape shadows to pastedowns and rear endpaper where card was removed; the book club’s lending-library stamps on the dust jacket flaps have offset to the free endpapers, affecting Faulkner’s inscription (which is nonetheless as legible as one could hope from Faulkner); otherwise would be about very good. In an edge worn but still good dust jacket with label on spine, presumably from the lending library. INSCRIBED BY FAULKNER.
