Montblanc Writers Limited Edition William Faulkner Set – Fountain Pen, Mechanical Pencil and Ballpoint Pen. The set has never been used and is presented in essentially as new condition. Only 4,000 sets were produced and this is number 3,767. Included are the complete set of boxes (including branded outer) and stamped paperwork, confirming first purchase on 16th February 2013. There’s three biro marks on the outside of the white box, but this is simply mentioned for a complete description – it’s a bit like saying that there’s a piece of tape out of place on the back of the frame on a Picasso!
Ever year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 2006 this was William Faulkner – he was one of the most significant American novelists of the 20th century. In his more than 50 books, novels, short stories and anthologies – he described again and again the beauty and tragedy of his homeland by the Mississippi River.
With the constrast between the brown, grey, green tinged resin (interestingly every pen seems to vary slightly in shade) and the platinum trim, in my opinion these are some of the most striking and handsome Montblanc pens available. With their domed cap and cream snow flake, it also gives a nod to historical offerings from Montblanc. The 18k nib is adorned with a bi-plane, which reflects Faulkner’s love of aerobatics.
The important details are as follows…
• – 18K Medium Nib – decorated by a fine engraving of a bi-plane
• – Montblanc Piston Filling System
• – Limited Edition Number present: Fountain Pen 3767/16000, Mechanical Pencil 3767/4000, Ballpoint Pen 3767/18000
