Mosquitoes.

"She gazed downward upon the dark, ceaseless water. It was never still, never the same, and on it moonlight was broken into little fleeting silver wings": First edition of William Faulkner's Mosquitoes

New York: Boni & Liveright, Inc 1927.

First edition of Faulkner’s second novel. Octavo, original cloth, pictorial endpapers. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a small chip to the front flap. From the library of Virginia bibliophile and historian Christopher Clark Geest with his bookplate to the pastedown. A very nice example of this early Faulkner work.

On a yacht on Lake Pontchartrain, a diverse group of strangely associated people including a social climber, famous writer, sculptor, and Englishman embark on a four-day excursion from the city of New Orleans. Evidently inspired by an similar excursion from Faulkner's own life, the novel offered a tongue in cheek criticism of the repetitive and mundane preoccupations of the New Orleans creative community Faulkner was immersed in at the time.
