New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1935. First Edition. One of 310 numbered copies (this being No. 131) SIGNED by the author. Faulkner's tale of barnstorm aviation, a pursuit which took his brother Dean's life a few months after the book was published. Basis for the 1958 Douglas Sirk film "The Tarnished Angels" featuring Robert Stack, Rock Hudson and Dorothy Malone.
Quarter-bound in pale blue cloth, with silver paper-covered boards and silver spine title. Lacking the publisher's slipcase. Spine faded as often found, some wear at the fore-edge of the front board, and some creasing to the fore-edge of the fold-out leaf preceding the title page. A solid Very Good example overall.
