8vo. Original publisher’s black cloth stamped in gold and red, top edges stained red; dust jacket (price clipped, worn with some chipping at edges, vertical crease on front panel). FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING of the trade issue. Go Down, Moses is a collection of seven related pieces of short fiction, sometimes considered a novel. It spans more than a century in the history of the McCaslin family, viewing their hardships and triumphs by examining their daily lives. It is considered by some to be Faulkner's most spiritual book, as shown in the connection to nature and the land in "The Old People," "The Bear," and "Delta Autumn.” Massey 449; Peterson A23.2b.
