New York: Farrar & Rinehart, (1939).
Hardcover. First edition. A couple of tiny stains on the spine else fine in near fine dustwrapper with small tears and nicks. Benét's most famous story, one of the most anthologized stories in American literature, a wonderful New England-folktale version of *Faust*. Benét and Douglas Moore collaborated two years later on a one-act folk opera version, and in 1941 it was filmed with Walter Huston and Edward Arnold as the title characters (with a score by Bernard Herrmann, who won an Academy Award but was later passed-over for such masterpieces as *Vertigo* and *Psycho*).
