This copy inscribed by Hemingway on the front endpaper "This book is the property of James Cowan--he is not responsible for it--nor did he buy it.

Item Description: San Francisco de Paula (Cuba) and Madrid, 1953-1955., 1955. Large 4to. Altogether 4¼ pp. on 5 pp. With one autogr. envelope. To George Brown, the owner of a gymnasium in Manhattan, Hemingway's personal trainer, boxing coach, and friend. - I: Hemingway's affection for his sporting pal is evident in this revealing and highly personal letter, written shortly before Ernest and Mary left for an African safari: "How are you kid? Mary sends her best. We are fine and in very good shape and think of you often. Were out on a trip together on the boat for two weeks and we go to bed every night after it gets dark and have plenty of time to talk and to sleep good [.]". Hemingway then gives news of his sons and mentions his youngest son ("Gig"), who, in his early twenties, was turning violently hostile to his father: "I am sorry I spoke against Gig since he is a friend of yours and used to be of mine as well as my favorite son. But he changed very strange very fast. As bad as though the devil was managing him. I couldn't ever see him again; not even to go and see him hanged. But if he seems good to you, O.K. I haven't heard from him since last November when he came of age [.]" (Finca Vigia, San Francisco de Paula, Cuba, 12 May 1953). - II: Written on the eve of the latter's visit to Cuba and while preparations are being made for the filming of "The Old Man And The Sea": "George you can't have any confidence in any of those characters. They are all tighter than a hogs ass in fly time. That Goldwyn kid was nice as could be when it was a question of seeing us and thus becoming an old pal of old Ernie [ ]" (ibid., 18 August 1955). - III: Written from his sickbed. Preparations were still being made for the film, and Hemingway had spent September trying to get actions shots of leaping marlins for the producer Leland Hayward. Apparently, too, Hemingway was making an effort to get Brown involved in getting Spencer Tracy in shape, for he writes: "I am very sorry about [Peter] Viertel [who wrote the screenplay] behaving so carelessly. He is a very selfish boy but I think he has a little bit of an excuse in that he was with Zinneman on the script and was expecting you out there. While Zinneman was down here we discussed the whole thing about your getting Spencer in shape and agreed it was absolutely necessary and we spoke about it again on the long distance phone [ ]" (ibid., 25 November 1955; with several autograph lines in pencil). - IV: In early 1954 Ernest and Mary Hemingway suffered two near-fatal plane crashes in Uganda, and Hemingway's injuries were extensive (according to Carlos Baker, "The crash at Butiaba and the fire at Shimoni had [.] left him no more than a shadow of his former vigor"). "Just got your letter of Jan 14 George forwarded back from Nairobi. Sure glad you liked the first hooks piece with the pictures. We'd only been out 4-5 weeks then and I wasn't really in shape. In 5 months of that stuff got down to under 190 before those crashes. Now no exercise since Jan 23-24th except early necessary damaging exercise (pitching rocks left-handed with a busted back type of exercise). Good thing I was in shape though. All doctors look at you like some kind of freak like Joe Grimm because you are alive. Am tired of being so smashed up. But always remember you and your head. We beat this one I guess but the smashed vertebrae etc is a no good rap [ ]" ([Madrid], 24 May 1954). - I to III: On personal stationery of Finca Vigia; IV: on sheet of hotel stationery ("Palace Hotel, Madrid"). - Partly light-soiled, otherwise in fine condition.

Item Description: France, Spain, the Bahamas, Cuba,and aboard the S.S. Volendamof the Holland-America Line, [circa fall 1931–1938], 1938. 4to and 8vo. 18 pages. Nice unpublished groiup of letters to his close friend Guy Hickok. A young Ernest Hemingwayfirst metGuy Hickok in the early 1920s when they were both acting as foreign correspondentsfor North American newspapers in Paris. Hemingway, working for the Toronto Star, began what would become an enduring friendship with the good natured Hickok, who was on assignment for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Hickok even provided the inspiration for Hemingway's short story ,Che Ti Dice La Patria?’ (collected in Men Without Women, 1927). This correspondence is congenial, unrestrainedand mildly profane. ,I am a son of a bitch ifI have becomerespectable.’ Hemingway in the midst of writing Death in the Afternoon. - A remarkable unpublishedletter with two original sketcheswrittenaboard the S.S. Valendom,7 May 1931,’The reason I didn't write you about the book is because it is hard enough to write it withoutwriting about it. But listen if you will come down to Madrid you can read it typed in as far as it is to date besides which we could see who can drink and who not and see the bullfights.’ He also rankles at what must have been an earlier comment of Guy's ,I am a son of a bitch if I have become respectable and no later than last winter I was forced to sleep all night on the front porch -not being a good size for Pauline to carry upstairs.’ The relating of a drunken stumble into a holy water fount and Spanish villagers spying the "3/4 empty " bottle in the front seat of his convertible provides further evidence.Hemingway apologizes forhis lack of communication, impeded by being seriously injured in a Montana wreck: ,I couldn't write then because my arm was still paralyzed. Have only been able to write since 3 weeks. It will be absolutely all right if keep after it. Anyway can shoot, fish and write withit now, but can't sock anybody.’Hemingway also provides an ink sketch of his range of motion in the armand another drawing of his new home in Key Westthat points out his favorite features, like a "flat roof, see all over town and sea.’ - The remaining letters were to bringHickok up to date on varioushappenings both familial and professional. In thefall of 1930, Hemingway writes of the birth of his son Gregory:’Pauline left last night for Paris. We are going to play the overture in Kansas City, leaving around last of September.’ A few years later he was more focused on his finances and hiscareer,writing in June of 1935 about the potential serialization of one ofhis works in Scribner's magazine ,I was always suspicious of that syndicate job.’There are frequent references to loans between the two men (Guy more often being the recipient of funds) but Hemingway thanks him for sending $100 when the author was down to $25 in the bank.

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1933. No binding. Unbound long galleys. Old horizontal fold as issued, a modest stain at the top of the first few leaves, else a remarkably preserved near fine example, housed in a custom quarter morocco and cloth slipcase with morocco label gilt. Inscribed by Hemingway to Jane Mason: "For Jane with love -- Pappa." Mason was an attractive, wild, and probably bipolar 22 year-old free spirit whom Hemingway and his second wife, Pauline, met in Havana in 1931. She was the wife of G. Grant Mason, the head of Pan American Airways in Cuba. Hemingway and Jane Mason became fishing partners and then lovers in 1932 (this latter point is generally accepted, although some scholars suggest that Hemingway insinuated an affair that did not exist). The following year she jumped or fell from a second story window, breaking her back. When Hemingway discussed the incident with John Dos Passos he somewhat callously quipped, "She really fell for me," although some have argued that it was the author, more than the socialite, who was smitten. Mason went to New York City for a long recuperation, and eventually divorced her husband and married Arnold Gingrich, the editor of *Esquire*. It appears that by the 1940s she remained friends with Hemingway's ex-wife Pauline, rather than with the author himself. Hemingway scholars have argued that he saw in her a kindred, depressed spirit, or at the very least his very own Zelda Fitzgerald. Some of Hemingway's work, such as the Nick Adams story "A Way You'll Never Be," was written for her, and toward the end of his life Hemingway admitted that she was the model for his character Margot Macomber. A marvelous association. Bookseller Inventory # 346587

Item Description: Paris Three Mountains Press 1924, 1924. 30pp. First edition. One of 170 copies. Illustrated with a frontispiece author portrait by Henry Strater, an American painter and fellow expatriate who became friends with Hemingway in Paris. This is the author’s second book, published in a smaller edition than his first, a pamphlet of which 300 copies were printed. The sixth and final volume of a series of works by important modern writers, edited by Ezra Pound, titled "The Inquest into the State of Contemporary English Prose." The book contains eighteen terse, untitled chapters, which Edmund Wilson called "dry compressed little vignettes." A book with the same title was published in the U.S. the following year containing fifteen short stories for which the chapters in the present edition served mainly as introductory vignettes. Only two vignettes from this book were titled and used as full stories: "A Very Short Story" and "The Revolutionist." Most reviewers saw an affinity to Gertrude Stein in Hemingway’s spare prose style, and F. Scott Fitzgerald felt "a sort of renewal of excitement at these stories wherein Ernest Hemingway turns a corner into the street." In tan boards, printed in red with a pattern of clippings from newspapers in several languages, and the title in black. Slight wear to extremities, else a very fine copy. Housed in a leather-backed slipcase with chemise, which shows some wear. (Hanneman A2). Bookseller Inventory # 17389

Item Description: New York: Charles Scribners, 1950. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. First Edition. First edition, advance issue. Dark blue cloth with gilt stamping, one of 25 copies bound for presentation. Signed and inscribed by Hemingway three weeks prior to publication: "For Ben Meyer / from his friend / Ernest Hemingway. / Havana 21/8/50". With original letter and envelope, from Mary Hemingway to Ben Meyer, on Finca Vigia San Francisco de Paula Cuba stationery. Book is lightly bumped to lower corners, else an extremely bright and fine copy. Housed in a custom folding leather and cloth case lettered and ruled in gilt. Ben Meyer was a journalist who traveled to Cuba to interview Hemingway about his latest novel, Across the River and Into the Trees. In the article, Meyer quotes Hemingway as being very pleased with his new work, and describes Hemingway’s house (Finca Vigia, Lookout Farm) and his daily activities. Published first in the Kansas City Star on 10 September, 1950, Meyer’s article celebrates the publication of Across the River, a book Hemingway himself stated "is about love and death, happiness and sorrow and the town of Venice. I really fired all the barrels on this one." Meyer stayed in contact with the Hemingways, as evidenced in the letter to him from Mary Hemingway, dated 1958, thanking him for photos he sent to her of her hometown, Bemidji, MN. Conversations with Ernest Hemingway, Bruccoli, 1986. Originally published serially in Cosmopolitan from February - June 1950, Across the River and Into the Trees tells the story of American Colonel Richard Cantwell during the last day of his life as he recalls his experiences in war and love as a younger man in Venice. Hemingway took the title of this novel from the last words of General Thomas J. ("Stonewall") Jackson, quoted on page 307: "Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees." Like much of his writing, this novel is highly autobiographical. Also in typical Hemingway fashion, Across the River utilizes the Iceberg Theory, in which the true essence of the story is not expressly said in the plot but rather is meant to be inferred.

Item Description: Random House, New York, 1948. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A LITERARY ASSOCIATION COPY OF THE HIGHEST IMPORTANCE: First edition of Irwin Shaw's The Young Lions, HEAVILY AND REVEALINGLY ANNOTATED BY ERNEST HEMINGWAY and with a noted provenance. In his hand-written marginal notes, Hemingway (who is portrayed as one of the characters in the book) writes about the subjects closest to him, war and family, in a blunt, unguarded style, providing an intimate portrait of Hemingway the man and writer. Hemingway presented this copy of the first edition of Irwin Shaw's The Young Lions, to his close Italian friend Carlo Kechler, annotating it on 28 pages with strong and revealing comments about his family, his war experiences, and his opinions on Shaw's writing and personality. Examples of Hemingway's hand-written comments include: p.527: "Carlo: This part from here on is what we shoot him for. This is where he brings in my poor, good brother. lonely, gallant, worthless and a good soldier EH." p.530: "This is the part I will break his jaw for EH." p.531: [referring to his brother] "When we were children they called him dregs because he was the last of six of us. (The son of a bitch even kills [??] and as though it were easy.)" p.538: "Now he has his conscience straight. and my kid brother did transfer and fought as an infantryman with the 4th US Inf. Div. what bullshit it all is EH." p.542: "Of course he was never there the day we made the break-through and the bombing went badly because the wind blew the smoke from the bomb line over us. They even killed a Lieut Glu [?]." p.543: "He has forgotten all the dead cows and that the germans could not even speak and they were the 6th Paratroop Div. But, of course, he was not there. (What sort of dog faced soldiers are these?)" p. 586: [referring to the Congressional Medal of Honor, which Shaw implies Hemingway won out of "sheer stupidity"]: "I never won it and I wouldn't take it if I did. EH." p. 598: "My brother always brushes his teeth. This is how he Shaw the Shit disguised him. Will we pardon him I guess and kick his ass and let him go write more books EH." p.600: "They weren't civil affairs. They were filming the war. If they had been civil affairs they aught have had to work occasionally. He is certainly the man to give the orders-" p.601: "FOR WhAT? They didn't. We killed or captured them all but 16." p.602: "I went out with George the chauffeur to show him the, and to re-examine, the tricksy way we came into avoid useless combat and each place I pointed out where it was necessary to fight, or unavoidable." On the relationship between Hemingway and Shaw: In May 1944, Hemingway met Shaw and a date at a the White Tower in London. "Hemingway shook Shaw's hand, eyed his lady, and asked the writer to introduce them. Shaw obliged. Her name was Mary Welsh, he said, and she worked in the London bureau of Time. From Shaw's manner it was clear that he was having an affair with her. [Hemingway] proceeded to ask Mary if she would have lunch at the White Tower with him someday. This bold muscling-in infuriated Shaw (who would later repay Hemingway for it by depicting him in The Young Lions as a short fat correspondent for Collier's with a round face heavily mottled with much drinking)" (Lynn, Hemingway, 506). Hemingway and Welsh would marry in 1946. "In addition to portraying Hemingway as the war correspondent named Ahearn, Shaw in The Young Lions portrayed Mary as Louise M'Kimber and Hemingway's brother Leicester savagely as Leroy Keane, 'a garrulous scrounger with a reputation for being unlucky', a 'constipated brother-and-hero-haunted man with a frigid wife' and three unwanted children. "Hemingway thought that Shaw portrayed him as a buffoon and Mary as a whore, and was furious. He called Shaw a conceited and despicable jerk who liked to publish his fantasies about Jews killing Germans. He hated Shaw for sleeping with Mary, portraying her in The Young Lions, publishing a novel on World War Two (which he considered his private subject), writing on war witho.

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1926. First edition, first issue of the first printing, with the misprint ("stoppped") on page 181 line 26, in the first issue dust jacket with the misprint on the front panel ("In Our Times" vs. "In Our Time"). Octavo, original black cloth. A near fine copy with a bookplate to the inside pastedown in a very good first issue dust jacket, which has had professional restoration, mostly in strengthening the paper and with a small bit of paper replacement at the upper front flap fold. The Annette Campbell-White copy brought $120,000 at Sotheby's in 2007. The Sun Also Rises was published by Scribner's in 1926, and a year later in the United Kingdom by Jonathan Cape under the title Fiesta. Though it initially received mixed reviews, it is now "recognized as Hemingway's greatest work" (Meyers, 1985). The fictional plot depicts a love story between war-wounded and impotent Jake Barnes and the promiscuous divorcée Lady Brett Ashley, but the novel is a roman à clef; the characters are based on real people and the action is based on real events. Hemingway proposes that the "Lost Generation," considered to have been decadent, dissolute and irretrievably damaged by World War I, was resilient and strong. Naturally, themes of love, death, renewal in nature, and the nature of masculinity are heavily investigated. For example, the characters engage in bull-fighting, which is presented as an idealized drama: The matador faces death and, in so doing, creates a moment of existential nothingness, broken when he vanquishes the possibility of death by killing the bull (Stoltzfus, 2005). The Sun Also Rises is seen as an iconic modernist novel for future generations (Mellow, 1992), although it has been emphasized that Hemingway was not philosophically a modernist (Reynolds, 1990). "The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway's masterpiece - one of them, anyway - and no matter how many times you've read it or how you feel about the manners and morals of the characters, you won't be able to resist its spell. This is a classic that really does live up to its reputation" (David Laskin). Bookseller Inventory # 3023

Item Description: Three Mountains Press, Paris, 1924. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, number 80 of only 170 copies, of Hemingway's second book - the book that would define his style and help launch his career. Printed on Rives hand-made paper and with woodcut portrait frontispiece after Henry Strater. "From their first appearance in 1924, the in our time chapters have been recognized by their author, readers, and critics as profoundly compelling prose in an altogether new form. '[I]t is where I think I have gotten hold of it,' Hemingway wrote to Edmund Wilson a few months after finishing them (25 Nov. 1923, in Selected Letters 105). Wilson, the most influential critic of his time for Hemingway's generation, agreed: '[H]is prose is of the first distinction,' Wilson declared in on of the book's first reviews and added, 'he is? strikingly original, and in the dry compressed little vignettes of In Our Time [sic], has almost invented a form of his own' ('Dry Points' 120)? "Numerous other reviewers, who had never heard of Ernest Hemingway, shared Wilson's enthusiasm, and even those repelled by Hemingway's violent subject matter acknowledged the power of his prose. Fellow writers, too, recognized that, as Scott Fitzgerald put it in recommending the book to his publisher, 'He's the real thing.'" (Cohen, Hemingway's Laboratory: The Paris in our time). Provenance: With decorative bookplate of Helen Hamilton by the noted American artist Ralph Fletcher Seymour on front pastedown. Hamilton is possibly the American writer and political activist Helen Hamilton Gardener (1853-1925). Paris: Three Mountains Press, 1924. Tall octavo, original publisher's decorated tan paper boards; custom cloth box. A few spots of rubbing to spine, one corner lightly bumped; boards a little bowed; usual discoloration to endpapers. A very nice copy. With only 170 copies printed, the scarcest of all Hemingway titles. Bookseller Inventory # 129

Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1927. Cloth. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. The book is firmly and squarely bound in blue cloth, which is slightly faded to the spine and with some minor marking. The text block is age toned, with minor foxing and a neatly written name and date to the inside front board. The dust jacket states "2nd impression" to front flap and spine, but it is priced at "7s. 6. net.", as one would expect the 1st to be, and other than the impression declaration it appears to be identical to the 1st printing, with the same design and no reviews, it is slightly foxed and toned, with some minor chips and closed tears to the edges, also one small tape repair to the reverse at the top of the spine. Published as 'The Sun Also Rises' in the U.S., the U.K. edition is a true rarity, particularly in the original dust jacket, the artwork of which is perfectly evocative of the period.

Item Description: Scribner's, New York, 1932. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY HEMINGWAY in the month of publication on the front free endpaper: "Ernest Hemingway / Cooke, Montana / September 1932". A beautiful copy in outstanding condition. "From 1930 to 1932 [Hemingway's] attention and interest were focused almost entirely on the long treatise on bullfighting that would eventually be titled Death in the Afternoon. By the time the book was published, however, it had expanded beyond its original focus on bulls and bullfighters: Death in the Afternoon was Hemingway's first and most complete essay on art and his first public articulation of his opinions on writers and writing. He worked harder on Death in the Afternoon than he had worked or would work on any book published in his lifetime" (Mandel, A Companion to Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon). About the inscription: Hemingway spent the summer of 1932 at Lawrence Nordquist's L-Bar-T Ranch (just inside the Wyoming border and about 12 miles from Cooke City, Montana), fishing, hunting, and writing while awaiting the publication ofDeath in the Afternoon on September 23, 1932. The copy, dated September 1932, is one of the earliest he signed. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket; custom half-leather box. With color frontispiece by Juan Gris and photographic plates throughout. Book near-fine with a few scuff marks, dust jacket with very minor edgewear and a little soiling to spine.
