Item #25325 To the Voters of Oxford. William Faulkner.
(Faulkner, William)

To the Voters of Oxford.

Oxford, MS: 1950. First edition. An original copy of Faulkner's famous "Beer Broadside" containing four arguments for legalizing the sale of beer in Oxford, Mississippi. This was Faulkner's direct challenge to an earlier broadside distributed by a group of clergy calling for the sale of beer to remain illegal. Contains the blemish to "because" in point 1. According to Petersen, there were likely two impressions of the broadside, the first without the blemish to "because" and the second with the blemish. Others have suggested a single impression, with the blemish merely due to type batter that might have occurred during the print run. Very small stain to lower left corner, creases from mailing, else a near fine copy of a scarce Faulkner item. Item #25325

(Petersen A29).
