SET THIS HOUSE ON FIRE

STYRON, William

New York: Random House, (1960). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in a Very Good example of the scarce trial state of the dustwrapper with typical light soiling and a small chip at the head of the spine. Housed in a fine cloth slipcase. Styron's third book, this copy in the very scarce trial dustwrapper of light green paper with red lettering containing only the title, author, and publisher on the spine and the author on the front cover with the title in green letters on a red background. The only other printed information is the price of $5.95 printed in red on the front inside flap. Speculation is that no more than 30 copies were issued with this dustwrapper with Styron's bibliographer, James West, stating that only 12 copies like this were issued. In any case a scarce issue.

The following morning Mason was found dead at the base of a cliff. The hours leading up to Mason's death were a nightmare to Peter, not only in their violence but in their maddening unreality and mystery. Peter later realized that he had been witness to a blaze of events which were ignited by a tragic conflict between two men: one was Flagg himself; the other was Cass Kinsolving, a tortured, self-destructive American painter who had settled in Sambuco after an alcoholic flight across most of Europe. Mason, leading a hectic, pretentious, Don Juan life, found Cass his natural enemy and prey. Out of the enslavement, the agony, the degradation of their relationship came the salvation of one man and the destruction of the other..."
