A bright copy rebound in Burgundy calf gilt by Zaehnsdorf for Aprey & Co., with gilt decorated dentelles, marbled endpapers, and edges gilt. Wild Palms consists of two interwoven short stories with opposing perspectives on love and sacrifice, and is one of Faulkner's most experimental works. "When I reached the end of what is now the first section of The Wild Palms, I realized suddenly that something was missing, it needed emphasis, something to lift it like counterpoint in music. So I raised it to pitch again with another section of its antithesis, which is the story of a man who got his love and spent the rest of the book fleeing from it" (Faulkner). Petersen A19a.
