FAULKNER, William. A Fable. New York: Random House, (1954). Octavo, original blue cloth, uncut, later glassine, original slipcase.

Signed limited first edition, number 734 of 1000 copies signed by Faulkner.

Faulkner's haunting parable of mutiny and false armistice in World War I won the 1955 Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award, the first novel to win both awards. On publication The New York Times praised A Fable as "one of the important works of our major novelist." The novel evocatively illustrates "man's imaginative power to transform his history into transcendent myth" (Blotner, 587). Taken over a decade to complete, Faulkner considered it one of his masterworks. Without very scarce original glassine. Petersen A27.2a.

A fine copy.
