I had my first really good ML find day.  Earlier today on a business trip, I
dropped by a S. Texas used book store and got the following gems:

Faulkner SANCTUARY (1st 200 listings/#7 spine/blue cloth) VG/VG for $10
Plato  REPUBLIC (1st 278 listings/#8 spine) Fine/Fine  for $10
Faulkner GO DOWN, MOSES (374 listings[2 listings off of 372-a first by
Henry's guide]) Fine/VG  for $8

Folks--that's $160.00 worth of ML firsts for $28

PS:  I also got a fine/fine copy of Marguand's GEORGE APPLEBY 7 titles and 1
year from a first, but the title page states "introduction copyright 1940"
is this another way of stating the the book is a ML first?

Scott listed Cabell's "Beyond Life."  Is this rare in all editions, or just
a particular one?  Last week I bought a copy (B-L spine/binding 3 - no dust
jacket) for $7.50 but I couldn't see from the guide that it was rare,
except maybe first in dj.  Further info?
