Section XIV: Other Faulkner Family Members

Col. William C. Falkner - William's great-grandfather

The Old Colonel had a tremendous influence on Faulkner. For a short time he enjoyed a popularity with his contemporaries. But of his three novels only one was republished in the 20th century. The 19th century printings are tremendously scarce today.

14-1.Rapid Ramblings In Europe (1884)a) first printing, blue cloth(VG minus/none, as issued)500.00
b) first printing, olive green cloth(G plus/none, as issued)500.00

This was issued in at least three different cloth colors (the one I don't have here is gold). It is not known which came first.

14-2.The White Rose of Memphis1912 Dillingham edition(G/none, as issued)45.00
Maud Falkner - William's mother original 22" by 28" oil paintingoriginal(VG minus)2,000.00

There are spots where the paint has chipped off, and the canvas could be secured more firmly in the decorative outer frame (which makes the outer dimension closer to 30" by 25"). But Maud's paintings rarely turn up on the market, and this would make a good Faulkner collection that much better. This is unconditionally guaranteed as authentic. Additional photos can be provided. Insured postage will be at actual cost, not my flat rate.

Murray Falkner - William's brother: See item 8-1.
John Faulkner - William's brother
14-4.Men Working (1941)a) first printing(F/VG)125.00

b) first edition in brown cloth (VG/ none)35.00

One could assume that the beige cloth is the first state since that is the review copy, but it is also possible that both cloths were used at the same time.

c) first edition in generic library binding (G plus/ none)15.00
d) first paperback printing (1952)(F)20.00
d) French edition, paperback original (1949) (VG/ fair)35.00

This was published only in paperback, with an outer illustrated jacket. The jacket has extensive repairs inside with clear tape, and spotting on the outside.
