Details
FAULKNER, William. Soldiers' Pay. New York: Boni & Liveright, 1926.
8o. Original blue cloth, lettered in yellow (slightest wear at extremities); WITH THE SCARCE PICTORIAL DUST JACKET (a few small chips at extremities, short mended tear along rear joint, some light fading on spine panel.)

FIRST EDITION OF FAULKNER'S FIRST NOVEL. Faulkner's first novel was published through his association with Sherwood Anderson and his intervention with his publisher, Boni & Liveright. The World War I novel met with some favorable reviews as an experimental novel by an unknown writer, but failed to sell well. VERY RARE, ESPECIALLY SO FOR THIS NOTORIOUSLY FRAGILE DUST JACKET. Petersen A2.1.
