FIRST PRINTING is stated on the copyright page. The title page has blue highlights over the book title. Boards are gray cloth with blue top stain. The spine of the book has an error where there is a "The" above "Collected Stories of William Faulkner". It's worth noting that the dust jacket DOES NOT have this error - the spine on the dust jacket lacks the "The".

Note: The book club edition also say FIRST PRINTING, but the title page lacks blue highlights, the word "The" is omitted on the spine, the top stain is lacking, and there is usually a very small blind stamp on the bottom corner of the back board. Also beware of book club or later printing dust jackets married to first printing books. The dust jacket should have the $4.75 price on the upper corner of the front flap, and the dust jacket should be the same size as the book.

Collected Stories of William Faulkner won the National Book Award.
