New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1980).
Hardcover. First edition. Foxing on the page edges, slightly cocked, very good in near fine dustwrapper with a crease and some light foxing on the front flap. Inscribed by the author: "For Josephine and Kenneth with all best, Walker. Covington June 28, 1980." The recipients were Kenneth Haxton, a well-known Mississippi author and composer (one of his noted works was based on Faulkner's *The Sound and the Fury*) and his wife, Josephine, who was a very well-known author who wrote under the pseudonym, Ellen Douglas. An excellent Mississippi association.
