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.

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.
