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 the increasingly scarce dust wrapper, which is toned and shows a few nicks to extremities and one closed tear to top edge of front panel. Item #17823
