A Green Bough.

Ward, Lynd (illus.)

NY: Smith & Haas, 1933. Octavo. First edition. Faulkner's last poetry collection published during his lifetime has a title-page vignette and dust wrapper illustration by Lynd Ward. In A William Faulkner Encyclopedia, Stephen Hahn writes that "The poems in A Green Bough are remarkable for the degree to which they reveal the influence of other poets without ostensibly being imitations," combining elements of Eliot, Pound, Poe, Shakespeare, and others with Faulkner's own distinctive imagery and phrasing. Top edge slightly dusty, else a fine copy in green cloth, with a very good example of the increasingly scarce dust wrapper, which is toned, with a few stains to rear panel, some nicks and creasing along top edge, and two closed tears to front panel, one measuring 1/4" and the other 1 1/2" Item #17823
