New York: Random House, 1936. 8vo., [1]-384, title-page printed in red and black, one fold-out map printed in red and black. Original black cloth with gilt stamped facsimile of the author’s signature to the upper board and red rules, backstrip lettered in gilt and similarly ruled in red, top-edge red, original pictorial dust-jacket. A few minor chips to dust-jacket, otherwise a near fine copy. First edition, first printing, trade edition. A exemplary example of Southern Renaissance literature, drawing on the history of the Jefferson, Mississippi region, and its oral traditions, and using the modernist device of moving backwards and forwards in time to tell the story of three different families, before, during and after the Civil War, exploring the myth-making process and the simultaneity of time.
