THE FAULKNER READER: Selections from the Works of William Faulkner. William Faulkner. THE FAULKNER READER: Selections from the Works of William Faulkner.
New York: Modern Library, (1959). A Modern Library Giant, first edition thus. Originally published by Random House in 1954. INSCRIBED on the front endpaper "To The Maracay Book Club / with gratitude and best wishes / William Faulkner / [illegible, though possibly "Caracas"] / 20 April 1961" and signed on the title page "William Faulkner / Maracay / 10 April 1961." As is well known, Faulkner visited Venezuela on a State Department trip in April 1961; perhaps not known before was that during his travels he made a side trip to Maracay, about 50 miles outside of the capital, Caracas, to visit a book club founded in his honor by a former fellow Mississippian, Vivian Ray. According to Ray's son, "Maracay is located about 50 miles from Caracas and had a strong presence of US citizens due to the factories being installed there, but the main offices were in Caracas. Mr. Faulkner stayed during his visit with William and Victoria Fielden in Caracas, but they also had a residence in La Victoria (adjacent to Maracay) because Philip Morris had their manufacturing plant there. Some biographers say that Mr. Fielden worked with a petroleum company, but nope [Philip Morris is a tobacco company]. All US citizens including my mother stuck together, and they all knew who was who, so when they found out that Mr. Faulkner was coming, they arranged this 'out of protocol' event. I remember my mother telling me of how much Mr. Faulkner enjoyed this particular visit." Old tape shadows to pastedowns and rear endpaper where card was removed; offsetting from book club lending-library stamps on dust jacket flaps to free endpapers, affecting Faulkner’s inscription on front endpaper (which is nonetheless as legible as one could hope from Faulkner); otherwise would be about very good in edge worn but still good dust jacket with label on spine, presumably from the lending library. An interesting glimpse into one of the State Department trips of the Nobel Prize-winning author. INSCRIBED BY FAULKNER.
