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. All unpublished. Bookseller Inventory # 47476

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. (Grissom A.2). Bookseller Inventory # 17389

Item Description: 1933. First Edition. Signed. HEMINGWAY, Ernest.Winner Take Nothing.New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933.First edition of Hemingway’s famed collection of short stories, an especially rare presentation/association copy warmly inscribed by Hemingway in Paris the day after publication to his close friend, journalist Guy Hickok, "To Guy with much affection, Ernest, Paris Oct 28, 1933." Hemingway and Hickok, bureau chief of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, shared a love of "boxing, horse racing, human interest stories, and tall tales. Ernest never crossed the Seine without dropping in at the sign of the Eagle" and their trip across in Italy in 1927 inspired Hemingway's short story, "Che Ti Dice la Patria," this rare copy also with the bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, where Hemingway "had a chance to see the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over by Scribner’s. He liked the jacket, which he had not seen before" (My Brother, 139). This extremely rare presentation first edition of Winner Take Nothing possesses an especially memorable association in Hemingway's inscription—dated in Paris the day after publication—to Guy Hickok, "one of Hemingway's closest friends in Paris" (Montgomery Review 25:1, 112). The two first met when Hemingway, new to Paris, attended meetings of the Anglo-American Press Club. Hickok, head of the Paris bureau of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, impressed Hemingway with his knowledge of fine food, sports and French wines. "Hickok's neat black mustache was impressive too, and during a visit to Germany in the summer of 1922 Hemingway more than matched it" (Lynn, 122). The two also shared a keen interest "in boxing, horse racing, human interest stories, and tall tales. Ernest never crossed the Seine without dropping in at the sign of the Eagle in the Boulevard de la Madeleine. Laughter was always skyrocketing through the smoke-filled rooms" (Baker, 87). In 1927 Hemingway and Hickok set off on a tour of Italy. "In late March, in Hickok's battered Ford coupe, the two travelers crossed the border into Italy at Ventimiglia, traveling down the Riviera to Genoa In a village 20 kilometers above La Spezia, a self-assured young Fascist, disdainful of foreigners, commandeered a ride Hemingway described the young man in sardonic terms in an article, 'Italy, 1927,' first published as a straight journalistic account in The New Republic (May 18, 1927) and five months later as a short story, retitled 'Che Ti Dice la Patria?' [in Men Without Women]z' Hemingway's chilling glimpse into Fascism also highlighted a comic encounter when "a chummy whore assaulted the uncomfortable Guy Hickok with her obvious charms." Hickok and Hemingway were also frequent correspondents, with Hemingway writing Hickok of his pride in A Farewell to Arms [1929]—"It's a swell book—I'm damned if it's not," and describing Death in the Afternoon (1932) as "'my bloody book' It was a good book, he assured Hickok. 'Really maybe the best one yet' Hickok, who took pride in Hemingway's later success and admired Hemingway's ambition, furthered Hemingway's legend by writing articles about him and his wartime exploits for the Eagle" (Mellow, 346-7, 377, 414, 174). This exceptional presentation/association copy also contains the distinct bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company. "For 20 years Hemingway was a prominent player in the history of Shakespeare and Company To the delight of Sylvia, Hemingway arrived in Paris the evening of 26 October [1933] and came to see her the next morning. 'He and I are good old friends,' she declared in a letter 'He looks fine and handsome'" (Fitch, 117, 341). Ernest's brother, Leicester, would recall: "At Sylvia Beach's bookshop Ernest had a chance to see the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over by Scribner's. He liked the jacket, which he had not seen before since he'd had to correct proofs by cable and had be. Bookseller Inventory # 100370

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

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.

Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1935. hardcover. First Edition. This anthology, featuring one of Hemingway's most enduring short stories ("Fifty Grand"), is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Hemingway to George Brown: "For George, from his pal, Ernie." Brown was Hemingway's dear friend as well as his personal trainer and boxing coach. He served as a pallbearer at Hemingway's funeral. As far as we can determine, he was the only nonrelation on an "Ernie" basis with Hemingway. Although Hemingway regularly inscribed large numbers of his books (many that he did NOT inscribe can be found on ebay), it is quite possible that this is the only inscribed copy of this book. A wonderful and, given the subject of the anthology, appropriate association copy. Near Fine in a specially made clamshell box. Bookseller Inventory # 013205

Item Description: 1926. First Edition. Signed. HEMINGWAY, Ernest.The Sun Also Rises. New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1926. Octavo, original black cloth with gold paper labels, uncut. WITH: KIMMEL, Stanley. The Strange Voyage. San Francisco: Little Books, 1921. Slim 12mo, side-stapled original wraparound brown paper covers. WITH: Lost Generation Journal, Volume III, Number 3 (Fall 1975).Carbondale, Illinois: Southern Illinois University, 1975.First edition, first issue, an extraordinary association copy, inscribed by Hemingway’s first wife, Hadley, to author and interviewer Lawrence Broer: "Best wishes to Larry & Kris from one who saw the Sun Also Rise. Sincerely, Hadley R. Mowrer." Hadley was, of course, the dedicatee of the novel; Broer was a noted Hemingway scholar, who apparently asked Hadley to inscribe his own copy (a second inscription identifies this copy as originally his). Accompanied by Stanley Kimmel’s book of verse and an issue of Lost Generation Journal containing Broer’s signed article on Kimmel. The Kimmels were close friends of the Hemingways in Paris.In The Sun Also Rises, "the post-war disillusion and the post-war liberation are united in the physical enjoyment of living and the pains of love. Perhaps that is what expatriation was about" (Connolly 50). Hemingway’s first wife, Hadley Richardson (now Mowrer), describes Sun as "my book," as she is not only the dedicatee, but "had been Hemingway’s constant companion during perhaps the most important formative years of his career" (Broer, 16). These were the Paris years, when the Hemingways made friends with Stanley and Elsie Kimmel. In 1975, Hemingway scholar Lawrence Broer arranged through the Kimmels to interview Hadley Mowrer for an article in the Lost Generation Journal, featuring the Kimmels (present here). In it Broer describes the Kimmels’ relationships with the Hemingways and poet Carl Sandburg. Also included in this grouping is a first edition of Stanley Kimmel’s book of poetry, The Strange Voyage (1921). Having grown up in coal-fields of Southern Illinois, Kimmel possessed "a vision marked by rueful humor and a passion for tolerance earning him the title of ‘Sandburg of the Coalmines" (Broer, 11).Hanneman 6A.Rubbing to paper label, light wear to original cloth, renewed endpapers. An extremely good and exceptional presentation copy of this highspot of American literature, comprising a significant "Lost Generation" association with superb ancillary material and distinguished provenance.

Item Description: NY Charles Scribner's Sons 1940, 1940. First edition. A presentation copy inscribed by Hemingway on the front endpaper to Irma Wyckoff, "with appreciation and affection." Wyckoff was the personal secretary to Hemingway's long-time editor at Scribner's, the legendary Max Perkins. Hemingway's epic novel of the Spanish Civil War was inspired by his own experiences as a journalist during the conflict. For Whom the Bell Tolls is considered one of the writer's best works, and the novel's protagonist, Robert Jordan, is the fully-realized manifestation of Hemingway's ideal hero -- a man who exhibits grace under pressure. A very fine copy in a bright original pictorial dust wrapper, which shows only the slightest wear to the spine ends and corners, one short, closed tear to the bottom edge of the front panel, and a small scratch to the front panel near the spine. Housed in a custom-made red cloth box backed in gilt-titled blue morocco. (Grissom A.17.1.a). Bookseller Inventory # 25044
