William Faulkner. The Cofield Collection
Oxford, Yoknapatawpha Press, (1978). A book of photographs of the Faulkner family and Oxford, Mississippi, by an Oxford photographer who specialized in documenting the family's history, as well as the town and Ole Miss, the university in Oxford. Edited by Lawrence Wells (husband of Dean Faulkner Wells, niece of William Faulkner) and inscribed to Peter Matthiessen: "We think you and Pappy would have gotten along just fine. He would have admired you not just as a writer, but as a man. Larry and Dean Wells/ Oxford, Miss. March 6, 1986." Foxed; a very good copy in a very good, price-clipped dust jacket. A nice connection between two great American writers whose careers overlapped but don't seem to have intersected. [#032470] SOLD
