1 Styron, William Lie Down in Darkness
New York Bobbs-Merrill 1951 First Edition Cloth 
[1951]. Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full brown cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in gilt. Octavo. 400pps. Stated First Edition. There is mild bumping to the lower tips and the spine-gilt is somewhat faded. Otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The bright and colorful Salter dustjacket -- glossy in a new mylar sleeve -- has some rubbing wear at the folds and spine-ends; the spine-panel is also slightly sun-darkened. The original price (3.50) is intact. A very nice, collector's-quality copy of this classic. Styron's first book.

"...Once in a quarter century or so, there appears a book of so extraordinary a quality, there emerges a new writer of so fertile and magnificent a gift, that his publisher finds it difficult, in a time of easy superlatives, to express effectively his enthusiasm. Such a book is 'Lie Down in Darkness.' Such a writer is William Styron..."

"...On his way back to the States, Peter Leverett stopped in Italy to see his old schoolmate Mason Flagg in the little coastal town of Sambuco. 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..."

5 Styron, William This Quiet Dust and Other Writings
New York, New York, U.S.A. Random House 1982 0-394-50934-X / 9780394509341 First Edition, First Printing SIGNED by the Author
Very Good+ in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt and copper; the front panel in copper. Small quarto. [xii] + 305pps. Stated First Edition. There is a small dot atop the textblock and an owner's initials with a marked out price in the upper corner of the ffep. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp.

SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page.

"...In this, his first book of nonfiction, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist William Styron enlarges on many of the themes he has dealt with in his fiction. The result is a stimulating exploration -- a potpourri of reminiscences, reviews and reflective essays.
On the literary side, there are brilliant portraits of people he's known, from Robert Penn Warren to Peter Matthiessen and William Blackburn; and there are moving eulogies for William Faulkner, Philip Rahv, James Jones and Bennett Cerf, as well as appreciations of Thomas Wolfe, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Malcolm Cowley.
In a complex and thoughtful section on prisons and prisoners, Styron looks back on his role in saving a prisoner named Ben Reid from execution.
And finally, in the longest and most autobiographical part of the book, Styron reminisces about his youthful days at boarding school, the founding of the Paris Review and the creation of his novels..."
