Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York
Publication Date: 1955
Book Condition: Near Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good+
Inscribed by Hemingway to his very close friend and fishing buddy, Charles Thompson: "For Lorine and Charles with love from Ernest. Sept. 20, 1957." Near fine copy in sun-tanned dust jacket, chipped at the head. A choice association copy of one of Hemingway's most enduring works. The decade or so that Hemingway lived in Key West were among his most productive years as a writer. He wrote in the mornings, fished in the afternoons, and often spent his evenings drinking with friends. One of those friends, many say his best friend, was Charles Thompson, the owner of a marine hardware store and a couple of other businesses. Charles went on an African safari with Ernest, and the character "Old Karl" in ''The Green Hills of Africa'' is based on him. There is also a lot of Charles Thompson in the character Harry Morgan in the novel "To Have and Have Not.". Bookseller Inventory # 4789
